Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Movie Trailer Has The Most Marketing Ever

In case you didn’t know, Universal Pictures would like you to know Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom has it’s first teaser trailer coming out on Friday (tomorrow as of writing).

It’s not unusual for a new movie to have a blitz of marketing ahead of its first trailer release. But the amount of marketing being put into announcing the Fallen Kingdom trailer is unprecedented.

Ranking The Comicbook Movies Of 2017

Avengers 4 Is (Still) Infinity War Part 2

When Marvel first announced the culmination of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) and Phase 3 in the form of Infinity War, it was announced as a 2 part movie releasing in May 2018 and May 2019. 
However, once The Russo Brothers started working on the Infinity War movies (as writers and directors) they quickly stated that there would no longer be a part 1 and 2.

Justice League Banner With Superman
If you’re not completely sure what I’m talking about, the DCEU is Warner Bros and Detective Comics collection of interconnected superhero movies that all take place in the “same” universe. It started with Man of Steel and the most recent entry is Justice League. It’s the Warner Bros equivalent of Marvel Studios’s Marvel Cinematic Universe.
