Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) returns as the raptor-whisperer amidst more dinosaur troubles in JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opens up a few years after the events of its predecessor. After the horrific events that happened at the park, it has been abandoned, but still monitored.

Incredibles 2: Short of its Namesake, but Still Very Good

Holly Hunter returns to voice Elastigirl in INCREDIBLES 2 as a mother struggling to balance family and super-heroics.

Incredibles 2 arrives 14 years after its predecessor was released, but begins some mere minutes after the previous film’s conclusion. The Parr family—Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson), Elastigirl (Holly Hunter), Dash (Huck Milner), Violet (Sarah Vowell), and baby Jack Jack (Eli Fucile)—suit up after a local school track meet when an old foe named The Underminer (John Ratzenberger) shows up to rob a bank. The Incredibles spring into action, attempting to stop The Underminer’s wanton destruction of the city, an ancillary effect of his crime. While the family is mostly successful, plenty of people in high places lament the damage the superheroes continue rack up on their watch and consequently, their parachute support (day jobs, relocation services), gets yanked.
