First Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Trailer To Debut At SDCC 2017?

Life finds a way to hype movies a year from release.

Last week the title was unveiled for the sequel to 2015's Jurassic World, with the movie getting the subtitle Fallen Kingdom.

To go with that Universal unveiled a teaser poster, and now we might be getting our first look at the film sooner rather than later.

Chronicle Collectibles are one of the merchandising partners for the movie, and their co-founder Paul Francis may have let slip in a recent Facebook live stream that the trailer would drop next month, saying:

"Universal is gonna start rolling out some trailers, I think the first trailer will be sometime around Comic-Con?"

That's certainly not confirmation, and it's unclear just how much a marketing partner would know, but with a poster and title the promotion for the movie is very much underway.

A teaser trailer at Comic Con - or around then, at least - would make some sense: the movie is a long way off, but films are regularly hyped a year from release now, so it wouldn't be unusual to get a teaser this far in advance. Then again, the movie will need a lot of VFX work, so it might be too early.

Directed by J.A. Bayona (replacing Colin Trevorrow), and once again starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is slated for release on June 22, and a couple of weeks earlier in the U.K.
