The Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom poster is just a single nostalgic callback

New, 20 comments

Thanks to a brand-new poster, we now know the title for the Jurassic World sequel: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. We have no idea what that means, though it may suggest that dinosaurs were royalty at some point? Who knows? Look, the new Transformers movie opens with a King Arthur battle. Literally anything can happen and I wouldn’t be surprised.

Anyway, I’m more concerned with the movie’s tagline: “Life finds a way.” The marketers and producers really want us to know that Jeff Goldblum is coming back.

The tagline is a callback to Dr. Ian Malcolm’s meme-friendly line in the original Jurassic Park:

Goldblum, who skipped the past two Jurassic Park films, signed on to reprise his iconic sexy scientist role in the Jurassic World sequel back in April. He’ll be joining Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt, Dallas Bryce Howard, and B.D. Wong in the film. A Monster Calls director J.A. Bayona is attached to direct.

We still don’t know much about where this story will go, but producer Frank Marshall told SlashFilm that “the world has changed a lot since Ian Malcolm went to Jurassic Park and we need his point of view now more than ever.”

I wonder if that has anything to do with dinosaur poo.
