Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment's "JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM"




It’s been three years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment.  Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.  When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (CHRIS PRATT) and Claire (BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event.  Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. 

Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.
With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more aweinspiring and terrifying than ever before.   Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.  

Stars Pratt and Howard return alongside executive producers STEVEN SPIELBERG and COLIN TREVORROW for the epic action-adventure.  Directed by J.A. BAYONA (The Impossible, The Orphanage), Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is written by Jurassic World’s director, Trevorrow, and its co-writer, DEREK CONNOLLY.  Producers FRANK MARSHALL and PAT CROWLEY once again partner with Spielberg and Trevorrow in leading the filmmakers for this stunning installment.  BELÉN ATIENZA joins the team as a producer.  

The accomplished group is joined by co-stars JAMES CROMWELL (Babe) as Benjamin Lockwood, a wealthy entrepreneur who was Dr. John Hammond’s partner in creating Jurassic Park; JUSTICE SMITH (The Get Down) as Franklin Webb, Claire’s whip-smart hacker in the Dinosaur Protection Group, who is more comfortable being the “guy in the chair” at home base than in the middle of action; DANIELLA PINEDA (The Detour) as Dr. Zia Rodriguez, a genius paleo-veterinarian whose abilities in this archaic sub-specialty have never been tested on live dinosaurs; RAFE SPALL (Prometheus) as Eli Mills, Lockwood’s right-hand man who recruits Claire and Owen to bring the dinosaurs to a private reserve; TED LEVINE (Shutter Island) as Wheatley, a tough-asnails mercenary that Mills puts in charge to run the ground operation at Isla Nublar; TOBY JONES (Captain America series) as Eversoll, brought in by Mills to supervise the operations at Lockwood estate after the rescue mission; GERALDINE CHAPLIN (A Monster Calls) as Iris, housekeeper of the estate and keeper of family secrets; and ISABELLA SERMON, who makes her debut as Lockwood’s infectiously optimistic granddaughter, Maisie, a 10-year-old who has lived at the mansion her entire life.  

Series stalwarts BD WONG and JEFF GOLDBLUM reprise their roles as, respectively, Dr. Henry Wu and Dr. Ian Malcolm.  Wu, a corrupt geneticist whose name is synonymous with InGen, is as near-sighted as ever in his pursuit of scientific breakthroughs.  For his part, eccentric mathematician Malcolm first predicted doom for Hammond’s Jurassic Park a quarter of a century prior.  His unparalleled grasp on chaos theory and those who abuse power will prove invaluable…especially as Owen and Claire uncover a most deadly endgame. 

Bayona’s army of creative talents are led by cinematographer OSCAR FAURA (A Monster Calls, The Orphanage), production designer ANDY NICHOLSON (Gravity, Captain America: The First Avenger), costume designer SAMMY SHELDON DIFFER (Ex Machina, Imitation Game), Oscar®-winning creature effects creative supervisor NEAL SCANLAN (Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and Oscar®-winning composer MICHAEL GIACCHINO (Up, Jurassic World).  The Jurassic Park theme is by five-time Academy Award® winner JOHN WILLIAMS (Star Wars saga, Harry Potter series). Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was filmed in the United Kingdom and on the Hawaiian islands.
