There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

Listen to the First Preview of Michael Giacchino’s Entire ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Soundtrack!

Hold on to your butts, and grab a pair of headphones as you can now listen to the first previews of the Fallen Kingdom soundtrack!

The latest Jurassic Park sequel has already roared its way into overseas theaters, and one of the main things fans can’t stop talking about is the new soundtrack from Oscar-winner Michael Giacchino. Reprising his role of composer from Jurassic World, Giacchino has brought a darker style to the latest installment, embracing its extinction level and Gothic undertones. I’ve seen the film myself, and I cannot stop thinking about the music, and how badly I wish I had access to it already.

Thankfully, Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive first look at a track from the Fallen Kingdom Soundtrack! The new theme accompanies the opening of the film, and plays during some tense storm action at night prior to the title reveal.

Give “This Title Makes Me Jurassic” a listen below:

The Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom soundtrack hits stores next week, and features the following pun filled tracks:

1. This Title Makes Me Jurassic (2:54)
2. The Theropod Preservation Society (3:47)
3. Maisie and the Island (2:07)
4. March of the Wheatley Cavalcade (2:14)
5. Nostalgia-Saurus (1:05)

24. To Free or Not to Free (3:00)

26. At Jurassic World’s End Credits/Suite (10:55)

Previews for all these tracks are up on iTunes here, so get listening! While there are some returning themes, Giacchino offers many new flavours that are sure to turns some heads! If you need your regular dose of Jurassic however, I recommend giving the End Credits a listen!

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Giacchino had this to say:

“John Williams certainly set the tone, so I wanted to stay in that realm, but now here we are, five Jurassic Parks in, and I didn’t want to do the same thing I did on the last film. This film has a very different tone, so I basically went to the director, Juan Antonio Bayona, who I’ve known for many years, and said, ‘What if Bernard Hermann and Stravinsky had a baby who wrote the score for this film?’”

The ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ soundtrack releases June 15th, and is available for pre-order on Amazon now!

  1. Chris, can we expect a spoiler-free review of FK from you, since you’ve already seen the film? I’d love to read it.

    1. If I write one, it will likely include spoilers, and be after the films release.

      I did do a spoiler free thread of thoughts/impressions on Twitter here:

  2. Just read it. Thank you. I’m excited for this film. I’m know any sequel will hardly be as good as the original (and I’m thinking about any franchise here), but I’m still excited for FK. Got my Imax tickets for June 17. Can’t wait.

  3. Gotta say, I felt the opposite watching the film. I was left disappointed with the score, with the exception of a few cues (won’t say to avoid spoiling the film, but some of the choral sections were grest). Also the lack of using one of the greatest themes of all time meant the film lost the magic that a Jurassic film brings. Lost World still had that feel even without relying on the JP theme

      1. I guess it maybe a score that will likely divide opinion! As I’m sure the film itself will with the JP fan base

    1. I not a big fan of Giacchino’s Jurassic World score either. Except maybe the Chasing the Dragons track and the militaristic part of Pavane for a Dead Apatosaur. The “family theme” for the two brothers is so cheesy, barely better than the “family theme” for the Kirbys from JPIII.

  4. The music felt generic and did not stick out. It was the most disappointing score of the series.
    Not one memorable theme stood out, whereas there was always at least one cue I had in my ears when I left the four predecessors.

    1. Agreed. Nothing stood out for me either, except occasionally I thought it was overblown. Probably the choral bits coming in.

  5. My biggest question for the soundtrack is this: How often do we hear John Williams Jurassic Park Theme? I would hope we’d hear it more often than Jurassic World used it since Isla Nublar aka Jurassic Park itself is being utterly destroyed. I need to know!

  6. This is at best subpar compared to John Willians works. Chords sounds dry af, brass at 2:00 sounds just plain wrong, and don’t get me started about the choir at the end. This doesn’t sound Jurassic worthy at all and is plain sad.

  7. I think the music sample were are given is really scary and creepy. Also, I don’t think people should say this music is bad. Firstly, this movie has his music, and so will Incredibles 2, which is highly anticipated. Did you know he also did the music for The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Up, Cars 2, Inside Out, Coco, and Jurassic World? I think we should all give this poor man a break. Overall, this score sampling is really fantastic!
