The “Jurassic World” sequel has officially been titled “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” and a first poster was released on Thursday.

The tag on the poster reads, “Life finds a way.”

The upcoming film, set for a release on June 22, 2018, will be directed by J. A. Bayona, with Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt both set to return for the sequel. Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow, who directed the first film, will executive produce the new “Jurassic” movie.

Trevorrow’s “Jurassic World” counts as the second highest-grossing opening weekend of all time domestically, behind “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Internationally, it comes in third after “The Fate of the Furious” and “The Force Awakens.”

The film has made $1.67 billion at the worldwide box office, passing “Marvel’s The Avengers” to become the fourth-highest-grossing movie in history.

In April, Pratt revealed that the sequel is “going to be a scarier version. A little bit darker and will continue to expand and carry the story forward in a way that is really unexpected and you wouldn’t have imagined.”

Bayona has also teased that he will make the sequel much darker than previous films, saying he will take the “Jurassic” series to “places where the saga has never been before.”
