  • Damn Good ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Trailer Edit Takes Horror Film Approach
    One of the big complaints I saw on social media about last week’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer is that it didn’t present much of a horror film, despite being recently promised to be the franchise’s scariest installment to date.
