From IMDb: “Four years after the destruction of Isla Nublar, dinosaurs now live–and hunt–alongside humans all over the world. This fragile balance will reshape the future and determine, once and for all, whether human beings are to remain the apex predators on a planet they now share with history’s most fearsome creatures in a new Era”

Review: (#1) The amber conceit ties it back to the original, but does nothing with the empty background. (#2) Another tie back to the beginning, but without any suitable texture. (#3) The attempt to pay attention to details is interesting even if the design itself is not. (#4) What didn’t work about the first design is largely fixed in this one. There’s still a blank background, but its completely minimized and instead, we’re given much more interesting foreground details.
(#5) A film still seems a bit lazy. Sure, it’s trying to establish the survivalist area the film starts in, but that’s not that appealing. (#6) The amber motif is finally used to the best of its potential, but the three original film actors look like they are drawn in rather than feeling more realistic than the four figures at the top. (#7) IMAX wants to be cool, but their poster designs just aren’t that appealing, especially when they feel this cheap.
(#8) Another sound system-based poster design that does nothing for the viewer. (#9-#13) This simplistic series of character posters might do well at drawing in fans of the original film. (#14) An action poster that looks exceedingly fake and that’s not a helpful sign.
Trailer Rating: B- / C+

Review: (#1) The trailer almost creates the cohesion to prior efforts to make it look interesting. It goes a bit farther than the Jurassic Park: The Lost World did, but doesn’t quite make it all feel like lip service.
(#2) The millions producers have spent on this franchise might yield a trailer that’s a little more entertaining. It feels like it wants to appeal to lots of fans, but the tepid musical selection pairs with the plodding plot elements to make something garish without impetus.
In Visual Effects, dinosaurs may rule the world.
