While much about the sequel to 2015's blockbuster Jurassic World is still shrouded in mystery, Universal Pictures has now revealed one major detail: its title.
This morning the studio unveiled a new teaser poster that features the familiar logo, accompanied by the title Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, as well as the tagline "Life Finds a Way." The announcement kicks off the one-year countdown to the sequel's June 22, 2018, release.
The tagline is, of course, a reference to dialogue spoken by Jeff Goldblum's Dr. Ian Malcolm in the franchise-launching 1993 blockbuster Jurassic Park. (That oft-quoted line has even inspired a popular meme.) Goldblum reprises his role in Fallen Kingdom.
The meaning behind Fallen Kingdom is less clear. Reminiscent of the title of 1997's The Lost World: Jurassic Park, it most obviously could refer to Isla Nublar and the Jurassic World resort, which were abandoned following the events of the 2015 film.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is directed by J.A. Bayona from a script by Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly. Arriving June 22, 2018, the film features returning stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and B.D. Wong, joined by Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, Ted Levine, Geraldine Chaplin, James Cromwell and Jeff Goldblum.
