Remember when movie sequels didn’t used to have complicated subtitles that didn’t really matter because everyone would just keep calling them Movie 2 anyway? Yeah, me neither. Now Jurassic World is following in the time-honored footsteps of movies like The Lost World: Jurassic Park (a.k.a. Jurassic Park 2), and has a new title to match.
That title? Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Based strictly on the phrase “Fallen Kingdom,” we expect that its sequel will probably deal with the fallout of the last movie, in which an entire successful theme park full of tourists got completely overrun by rampaging dinosaurs. It also happens to be the title of a popular Minecraft parody of Coldplay’s “Vida La Vida” that hit YouTube in 2012, but that’s neither here nor there.
In any case, will the movie achieve the same level of success as Jurassic World, which surprised everyone when it made $1.672 billion worldwide and became the third-highest grossing movie in history? Well, Jeff Goldblum is returning to reprise his role as Ian Malcolm from the first three movies, so… probably. Mark my words, every cynical nerd girl who came out of their theater disillusioned over Bryce Dallas Howard’s heels will march straight back for the sequel just to see Goldblum flirt with everybody left in the park.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is expected to hit theaters June 22, 2018. Let us know what you think of this title in the comments below!
