Sometimes Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom wants to sell you on the idea that the plot focuses on protecting dinosaurs from a natural disaster, and other times it wants to scare the bejesus out of you with the said-same dinosaurs. This new chunk of footage, which arrives ahead of next week’s new trailer, does the latter.
Filmmaker J.A. Bayona (A Monster Calls, The Impossible) directs from Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly‘s script. The sequel’s story finds Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard’s characters returning to Isla Nublar with a new team in order to evacuate the dinosaurs due to an extinction-level event caused by an erupting volcano. None of that is present in this current video, but Jeff Goldblum is, and that’s really all you need to know.
The sequel also stars 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.

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. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
