This is not a "How hyped were you for each film?" type of thread but rather about how much hype and anticipation did you notice before each and every one of the Jurassic films.

While I was too young to remember the hype surrounding the original Jurassic Park, I do remember very clearly that the hype surrounding The Lost World was really big. People forget it was supposed to be THE film of 1997. There was TLW merchandise everywhere and the dinosaur fever reached even those who were not that into dinosaurs. Everyone seemed pumped to see the first sequel. (Wich is why I hate the internet myth that nobody ever cared for TLW). Jurassic fever was arguably at it's peak during this time.

The hype for Jurassic Park 3 however was not as big as TLW. People in 2001 still seemed interested in the franchise but the breakthrough factor was not there.

Fast forward to Jurassic World in 2015 and the hype for it was really big because of the huge 14 year gap between JP3 and this one. The nostalgia factor alone made the anticpation for it an event for both the hardcore fans and general public However, I feel it did not bring back dinosaur fever as much as TLW.

Now we are in 2018 with Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong but... Is it just me or does this seem like the Jurassic sequel with the least amount of hype? Even with social media on it's side and all that. I just don't see almost any hype for this sequel outside of a few hardcore fans on forums or stuff like that. Almost everybody else that I talk to from the casual audience seems to have no clue that another Jurassic sequel was made.

I have the feeling that this movie is definetely more hyped than Jurassic World. In my opinion JW is the least hyped movie of the franchise, despite it's financial sucess. It had no toys were effort was put in, despite Lego there was nothing to it. The only Video game came from Lego, too.

Yeah, Universal did seem to play it a little safe with Jurassic World in terms of merchandise and tie in material because they were not sure if the film was going to be succesful. But in terms of the attitude of the general public, most people seemed to really anticipate it.
