The critical reaction to Jurassic World:Fallen Kingdom is mixed as mixed can be. Sitting at exactly 50% on Rotten Tomatoes, the movie teeters precisely at the threshold of being perfectly indecisive. The film seems to have satisfied fans and moviegoers slightly better (as the big blockbusters usually do), given its A- Cinemascore and user ratings in the mid 60s on Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb; but none of these scores are the kinds of numbers Universal would like to see on a movie whose predecessor made over $1.6 billion at the global box office in 2015.
In recent years, studios have loaded up their summer release schedules with a wide range of horror films. This was never more apparent than in 2016 when Lights Out, Don’t Breathe, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Purge: Election Year, and the Conjuring 2 made large sums of cash (for the most part on austere budgets) and helped to shore up an otherwise lackluster summer for movies. 2017’s list of summer horror films were not as notable, with the two exceptions being the surprise hit 47 Meters Down and the prequel Annabelle Creation. read more

There used to be a time when the teaser trailer was the first formal look at an upcoming movie in motion.
