Of course, if you’d like to remain as spoiler free going into the latest Jurassic Park sequel, it may be best to avoid watching the latest TV spots. However, with that in mind, this trailer doesn’t really showcase anything new – we always knew Claire and Franklin would escape the Baryonyx, and had already seen them climbing for the hatch in the Super Bowl trailer.
Considering this is a pretty par the course escape, with no big Deus Rex Machina surprises (that we know of), it’s pretty standard trailer stuff (unlike the final trailer giving away far too much, to a frustrating degree – but hey, it made me incredibly excited!)
Give the latest spot a watch below.
I wasn’t sold on the Baryonyx design from the first trailer, but aside from the super thick jaw, it appears that the angle was misleading. The Baryonyx looks great in this latest TV spot, and is quickly becoming one of my favorite Jurassic designs. Hopefully that trend continues going into the film!
Circling back to the note of spoilers, I do hope the marketing refrains from giving away more of the plot. They have already outlined the basic plot, and given away some huge set pieces shots I’d prefer to have seen in theaters first. Some of my favorite modern film advertisement was for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, showcasing just how effective expertly crafted ‘less is more’ trailers and TV spots can be.
