OS ANGELES — The first official trailer of Jurassic World’s sequel, ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’, has been released with Avengers Infinity War star Chris Pratt back battling to save his dinosaur pals.
In the Universal’s film, there is not only plenty of dinosaur action, but there’s also an exploding volcano. And all we can say is, it’s a Jeff Goldblum movie! He will be reprising his role as Dr Ian Malcolm, for sure, that may be the only reason for the fans to rush to the cinema.
Directed by A Monster Calls J.A. Bayona, the film is set after everyone escaped from the former theme park on Isla Nublar.
The trailer opens with the park’s former manager, Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard), catching up with Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), who’s trying to convince him to come with her as she returns to the island.
Dearing heads up a group — the Dinosaur Protection Group — dedicated to saving their creations, and the plan seems to be to bring the dinosaurs off the island to safety.
But, not everyone is on board with the idea: Jeff Goldblum, who reprises his role as mathematician Dr. Ian Malcolm, tells a governmental committee that “these creatures were here before us, and if we’re not careful, they’re gonna be here after us.”

Maldives opposition legislator Ibrahim Mohamed Solih wins presidency
MALE — Maldives opposition legislator Ibrahim Mohamed Solih has beaten incumbent Abdulla Yameen according to provisional results, the country’s Elections Commission says.
Results released by the Elections Commission showed Mr Solih securing 133,808 votes (58.3 percent) compared to the 95,526 for incumbent Abdulla Yameen. The voter turnout was over 88 per cent out of the 262,000-strong electorate.
The Maldives government has acknowledged the opposition’s victory after the vote on Sunday, a surprise defeat for President Abdulla Yameen who was widely expected to win.
There were no other candidates.
Mr Solih had the backing of a united opposition trying to oust Mr Yameen, but struggled for visibility with the electorate, with local media fearful of falling afoul of heavy-handed decrees and reporting restrictions.
“I call on Yameen to respect the will of the people and bring about a peaceful, smooth transfer of power,” Solih said on television, shortly after interim results from the country’s election commission.
“We have won this election with a comfortable majority,” Solih said.Follow @gorkhapost
