Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom teases upcoming trailer

Can you see those ripples in the water? That's a sign something truly massive is on the horizon... And you'd be right as the Jurassic World sequel teases the first full-length trailer, arriving this Friday.

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard reprise their roles as dino-busting heroes Owen and Claire, this time under the direction of A Monster Calls filmmaker J.A. Bayona. The script is co-written by Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow.

Plenty of creature feature action is teased in this brief snippet although the exact nature of the plot is being kept under wraps. We're probably right in assuming there's an island, genetic engineering, conspiracy and lots of carnage...

B.D. Wong is back as shifty scientist Wu and you can expect a whole host of new faces including Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, Ted Levine, Geraldine Chaplin, and James Cromwell. Plus, Jeff Goldblum is back as everyone's favourite chaotician, Ian Malcolm.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom roars into life on 22nd June 2018 – check out the tease below.

More details on Ant-Man and the Wasp

Avengers: Infinity War teases an explosive continuation of phase III of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but what comes after? Step forward the Ant-Man sequel in which Paul Rudd's thief-turned-shrinking-superhero Scott Lang gets ready for more miniaturising adventures. 

As became apparent with the recent Thor: Ragnarok, Marvel are increasingly willing to shake up their formula – the latter, directed by Taika Waitii, moulded the Thunder God's latest adventure into something approaching a slapstick comedy. And rumours are swirling that Ant-Man and the Wasp is poised to become a Marvel first: a romantic comedy.

This all stems from a (very) rough translation of a Russian Kinometro transcript that reads as follows: "Completed the presentation of projects from Marvel: BLACK PANTHER (February 15), which was presented by a fresh and rather invigorating trailer, and MAN-ANTS AND OCS . The last picture, the rental of which is scheduled for July 5, 2018, Elena Brodskaya called 'the first romkomom from Marvel.' On this project was shown a promo video, in general terms introducing the details of the plot and characters."

Here's director Peyton Reed describing the movie to "We've actually been holed up in the room writing the movie — myself, Paul Rudd, Adam McKay, Andrew Barrer and Gab Ferrari. So we're formulating the whole structure of the movie. And I can't really tell you too much yet, except there are going to be things in this movie that you’ve never seen in any movie before. It's going to be nuts!"

Meanwhile star Evangeline Lilly, who plays Hope van Dyne AKA eponymous superhero Wasp (her suit was revealed at the climax of the first Ant-Man), has revealed more details on the plot.

"Those characters are experts in the quantum realm," she tells Vanity Fair. "In Ant-Man and the Wasp, they are trying everything in their power to safely enter the quantum realm and return back from it because they have evidence from the first film that Scott Lang was able to do that. If he can do it, why can't we? If we do succeed in Ant-Man and the Wasp, then that does open a whole entire new multi-verse to enter into and play around in. I'm not the story creator, so I can't tell you what they're going to do with that. But I definitely see the potential there."

Co-starring Michael Douglas as Hank Pym alongside Michelle Pfeiffer as Hope's mother, Janet, Michael Pena, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Laurence Fishburne and Walton Goggins, Ant-Man and the Wasp hits our screens on 3rd August 2018.
