Lava Finds a Way in the First Trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

The Jurassic Park franchise has seen humans coming to Isla Nublar, dinosaurs coming to San Diego, capitalism coming to Isla Nublar… and now, in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) and Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) have to do their best LOST (“We have to go back!”) and save their dino friends before Isla Nublar explodes.

Also, Dr. Ian Malcolm is back. Did we mention that?

This… looks pretty ridiculous. It’s humans against a literal ticking time bomb of a potential extinction-level event, yet those stakes don’t really land. Even Jeff Goldblum looks kinda bored being in this. The official synopsis:

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.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom erupts in theaters June 22.
