How Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer spoiled film’s ending
WHILE most trailers only tease the film’s plot, the final preview for Jurrassic World: Fallen Kingdom gave away the film’s ending – and the movie’s executive producer isn’t happy about it.
The latest Jurrassic instalment ends with dinosaurs on the loose, with a T-Rex facing off against a lion and a Mosasaurus among a group of swimmers.
These key moments were included in a trailer for Fallen Kingdom along with the movie’s literal last scene – Jeff Goldblum’s character saying “welcome to Jurassic World”.
In an interview with Gizmodo, Fallen Kingdom executive producer and writer Colin Trevorrow made it clear it hadn’t been his decision to include the film’s ending in the trailer.
“It was very frustrating for me,” he said. “That’s a relationship that we have with marketing [and] there are a lot of different needs.
“I try to be very lucid and rational about it, [but] to speak frankly, there is a very, very small percentage of people who watch all the trailers. The rest of the world might only see one.”
Trecorrow argued that marketing may have chosen to include the movie’s ending because it is under more pressure to “entice people to come back” than other, newer franchises.
“It stops us from resting on our laurels or just assuming the audience is going to show up. The downside is it feels like marketing is constantly feeling the need to make the case,” he said.
“I would definitely have preferred those images not be seen, but, if you haven’t watched the trailers, just go see the film.”
Fallen Kingdom premiered in Australia last Thursday and made $10,272 million in its first weekend, Mumbrella reported.
The box office takings is 36 per cent less than its predecessor, 2016’s Jurassic World, which had the sixth highest grossing opening weekend in Australian history.
The second instalment has earned mixed reviews and is currently sitting on a 50 per cent critics score on Rotten Tomatoes.
