However, that's essentially the only every silver lining to this dark cloud, as reviews for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom have been split - from vicious at worst to lukewarm at best. Playing god with the DNA of long-extinct animals sounded good on paper, but it led to a series of the most ill-advised theme park openings of all time, countless casualties, and the abject shirtlessness of Jeff Goldblum. "I'd like to see more of that, especially in big-ass movies". Just imagine what will happen when Jurassic World 3 storms into theaters in 2021. Along the way, they'll face frightening new breeds of dinos and uncover a mysterious conspiracy theory that could prove destructive to the entire planet.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - directed by J. A. Bayona and penned by Colin Trevorrow, who co-wrote and directed the first Jurassic World, alongside returning co-writer Derek Connolly - is set to stampede into theaters on June 22. After the events of 2015's Jurassic World, the park run by Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) was completely destroyed.
