Watch out, Bingers. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom stampedes its way to Philippine cinemas sixteen days earlier than the rest of the world! Now, let me hear that roar!
Philippine moviegoers are up for a sweet treat from Universal Pictures. The studio opens the much-awaited sequel to 2015’s Jurassic World on June 6! The decision is the studio’s way of thanking local fans for their support for Jurassic World, which earned its title as one of the biggest-grossing films of all-time in the Philippine history.
Dinosaurs and Extinction
Personally, I am ecstatic about this news. My childhood has been fun, exciting, and a bit terrifying because I grew up watching Jurassic Park and its sequel, The Lost World. The latter was one of my earliest cinema experiences and it totally blew me away! Just imagine me as a kid sitting in the darkness of the cinema being entertained and awed by the amazing visual and practical effects of the dinosaurs in the The Lost World.
About a decade later, the franchise got a fresh start in Jurassic World starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. It also saw the return of executive producer Steven Spielberg. In Fallen Kingdom, Isla Nublar, now abandoned by humans, serves as the habitat for surviving dinosaurs. They now have to fend for themselves in the jungles of the island.
Meanwhile, the dormant volcano in the island begins to roar to life. Owen (Pratt) and Claire (Howard) steps up to start a campaign to rescue the dinosaurs from the foreseen extinction-level event. As if the stakes are not yet high enough, they will uncover in their expedition a conspiracy that could return the entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.
Aside from the adventure and thrills of the franchise, I cannot wait to witness director Colin Trevorrow’s promised darker themes in this chapter. Among of which dark themes are that of the park’s creator attempt at playing god.
Brace yourselves for an earth-shattering adventure and destruction. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opens in Philippine cinemas on June 6! It is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
