Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom aims to be one mega summer movie. It’s going to have to do some heavy lifting to get past its forebear’s box office total, a massive $1.672 billion worldwide. And if the sequel wants to get into the Top 3 spots all-time worldwide, it’s going to have to crunch its way past the $2 billion mark. A tall order, but possibly within reach. The film’s marketing campaign is just starting to heat up, as evidenced by a new poster ahead of tomorrow’s brand new trailer.
Filmmaker J.A. Bayona (A Monster Calls, The Impossible) directs from Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly‘s script. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return to Isla Nublar in order to evacuate the dinosaurs due to an erupting volcano’s extinction-level event that threatens the man-made monsters. The sequel also stars Jeff Goldblum, James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, and BD Wong. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opens in theaters on June 22, 2018.
Check out the new poster below and be sure to keep an eye out for the new trailer tomorrow:

Here’s the official synopsis for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom:
It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.
When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.
With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before.
