Universal Pictures India's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is all set to release in India on June 7 along with superstar Rajinikanth's Kaala.
The film, second in the Jurassic World series, was earlier slated to open in India on June 8. It will release in more than 2,300 screens in India and in languages such as English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. The film opens in the US two weeks later on June 22.
Directed by JA Bayona, Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will reprise their roles from Jurassic World as Owen and Claire, respectively.
Bringing back one of the most-loved character from 1993 Jurassic Park series, actor Jeff Goldblum returns as Dr Ian Malcolm in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
This year also marks the 25th anniversary of the first Jurassic Park film, which released in 1993. Steven Spielberg, who directed Jurassic Park, is the executive producer of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The prequel, which released in India in 2015, had made a box-office collection of Rs 147 crore in India.
Rajinikanth's Kaala, which also starts Huma Qureshi, was earlier scheduled to release on April 27, but was postponed to June due to the standoff with digital service providers and the Tamil Nadu protests over the Kaveri water sharing issue. The Pa Ranjith film is produced by Rajini's son-in-law Dhanush. It will release across the country in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi.
