Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom brings dinosaurs back to the big screen this weekend in the sequel to what's become the fifth biggest movie of all time - Jurassic World.
So, how does the new dino flick stack up?
Well, for a start, Chris Pratt is back. Not put off by his multitudinous brushes with instant dinosaur death in Jurassic World, he's talked into returning to the island by his old flame.
- Jeff Goldblum opens up on return to Jurassic World
- Northland iwi plan $1.2m Jurassic Park-style anti-pest fence
- T-Rex couldn't extend their tongues, despite Hollywood depictions - report
Bryce Dallas Howard galloped around the jungle in her stilettos last time, but now it's all sensible shoes and a serious gear change. Howard is most definitely in the driving seat this time around.
The character she portrays, Claire, talks Owen (Pratt) into a rescue mission in this instalment.
This time around, Owen's prehistoric pet raptor Blue, our favourite T-Rex, and all their mates are in grave danger of being barbequed. So the star-crossed lovers must return to their island of woe to try and save them.
Obviously, no good sequel can live on a simple dino-volcano rescue mission alone. This serves only to kick off a far bigger story, with far bigger consequences.
A couple of things to note - this chapter is directed by Spanish horror-aficionado J A Bayona, and he brings those sensibilities into play here. This film feels darker than its predecessor and certainly creepier. Also, be warned - if you love Jeff Goldblum, make the most of him when you see him.
I loved the last Jurassic World and I loved this one too. I get that these new outings may lack the super fan shock and awe of that first Spielberg experience, but for me, this still delivered on the big-screen blockbuster dino action, upped the ante on the scare factor and doubled-down on some seriously creepy spookiness.
