Coming Soon Trailers: Jurassic World – Fallen Kingdom.
Jurassic World 2 looks to be the apex predator this weekend at the box office, challenged only by a half dozen streaming options.
Universal Studios is hoping folks are excited to visit Jurassic Park yet once more this weekend as Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is the only wide release scheduled. The first installment made gigantic waves, revitalizing the franchise. Unfortunately, Michael Crichton’s Dino Creature Feature series has suffered in its iterations. Can Jurassic World 2 buck the odds, or will it be another evolutionary dead end?
This week we also feature six films on Demand, including new originals for Netflix and Amazon Prime. Surprisingly, there’s no Nicolas Cage, but we do have a conspiracy theory thriller from the B-List runner up, John Kusack.
