After Jurassic World‘s one through three, Universal decided to shake things up for their fourth film and call it Jurassic World. It starred Chris Pratt, hot off the heels of the first Guardians of the Galaxy, and Ron Howard’s daughter, who’s just plain hot. The film went on to gross over a billion dollars worldwide and invigorated the seemingly fossilized franchise with new life.
Obviously a sequel was a sure thing. What wasn’t a sure thing, however, was the title. Would Universal return to the time-honored numbering system and call it “Jurassic World 2?” No. It had to be more epic than “world.”
After a boardroom of Universal executives quickly shot down “Jurassic Universe,” they settled for a subtitle. Thus, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was born. Today Universal revealed the first official poster. Check it out!
A poster should tell you everything you need to know about a movie with a single image. Looking at this, I can tell it’s definitely a Jurassic Park movie. Bravo, marketing team!
Seriously though, the familiar emblem gives me the sense that this film is going to be more of the same but the slightly darker color pallet in addition to the photoshopped embers tell me this film is going to be a shade darker, which is in line with what we’ve heard from the film so far.
That said, the idea of hanging this up on my wall doesn’t excite me too much. How about you guys? What do you think about not only this teaser poster but also the official title for this sequel? Let us know in the comments below!
