A T-Rex comes face-to-face with a lion in 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' new trailer
Ahead of the Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard-starrer's big-screen release in June, a new TV spot has been released and everything doesn't look right
In times, when superhero movie universes are clearly dominating the box-office, Universal studios has taken a different approach, relying heavily on its reserve of the "horror".
Come June 22, the franchise's long-running dinosaur saga will be taking over the screens with the second installment of the trilogy, Jurassic Word: Fallen Kingdom.
Picking up almost four years after the events of the last movie - 2015's Jurassic World - the upcoming blockbuster, however, seems to be following in the footsteps of the "The Lost World" movie as it explores the consequences when the ancient, ferocious animals are let loose in the world of humans.
Ahead of the Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard-starrer's big-screen release in June, though, promotions have been in full swing. As part of which a TV spot, containing a mix of old and new scenes, has made its way online - featuring a face-off between the T-Rex and the kind of the jungle, a lion.
"Ok. Here’s the newest trailer. I can’t wait for you to see. #jurassicworld," read a caption shared alongside the trailer video by Pratt on Twitter.
The imagery, where the fear-inducing creature is brought face to face with the mainland creature is quite terrifying and in a way satisfying, to say the least. It's almost catastrophic, as the scene appears to imply the level of devastation that's about to strike the wider world.
“We’re not on an island anymore,” Pratt-played Owen says, marking the ominous circumstances. “This has to end.”
Another interesting appearance in the new TV spot, though, is that of Dr. Ian Malcolm (portrayed by franchise star Jeff Goldblum), who despite a rather smaller role continues to be an integral part of the franchise.
"Genetic power has now been unleashed... we have entered a new era. Welcome to Jurassic World," Malcolm announces.

Speaking of genetics, there has been a recurring conversation over hybrid dinosaurs and whether or not they will feature in the third Jurassic World movie, which at present has been slated for June 11, 2021. The debate was particularly fueled by the introduction of Indoraptor, a hybrid dinosaur.
While Indoraptor seems to be very much a part of the "Fallen Kingdom" it won't return for the third Jurassic World movie, confirmed director Colin Trevorrow.
“I’m looking forward to, in the third film, getting a little back into the Paleontological, wild animal, true dinosaur nature of all of it," he added.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom hits theaters on June 22, 2018.
