Ahead of Monday’s new trailer debut, Universal Pictures has released the second in a trio of new posters for Jurassic World that are being rolled out over the weekend. Yesterday’s one-sheet featured Bryce Dallas Howard squaring off with a very CG-looking dinosaur, while today’s poster takes a look at how things are faring underwater at the fully functional Jurassic Park. It’s a pretty neat/terrifying preview of a species of dinosaur (the Mosasaurus) that’s yet to be explored in the Jurassic franchise.
I’ll be honest, though, I haven’t seen anything from the film that’s really stirred up much interest besides simple curiosity. It’s unfair to judge an effects-heavy blockbuster months out from release, but besides the fact that the Jurassic Park dinosaurs appear to look more realistic than the ones we’ve seen from Jurassic World, that first clip was full of stilted, unfunny dialogue and, yes, outdated gender dynamics.
That said, I’m still curious to see the film and holding out hope that Universal has a pleasantly surprising franchise reboot/sequel up its sleeves. I’d love nothing more than to come out of Jurassic World thrilled and satisfied, and director Colin Trevorrow has certainly assembled a more than capable cast.
Check out the new poster below, via Universal. The film stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy and Judy Greer. Jurassic World opens in theaters on June 12th.
