10 Trademark Applications for JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM Filed By Universal City Studios/Amblin' Entertainment

Apparently a new Jurassic Park movie, titled Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is being released next summer (news to me), and Universal City Studios, LLC and Amblin' Entertainment, Inc. are already getting a head start on protecting the movie's title.
On September 7th, Universal City Studios and Amblin' jointly filed ten applications to register JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM as a federal trademark, with each application covering different goods or services. Those goods and services cover not only entertainment services, but also a variety of merchandise one would expect to be marketed with a blockbuster movie. Some of the goods and services listed in these applications include:
Universal and Amblin' filed all these applications on an intent-to-use basis, suggesting they have a bona fide intention to (but may not) use the JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM mark in conjunction with all the listed goods and services (which makes sense considering the film is not set to be released until next summer, so it's very unlikely they would be offering those goods and services under that mark as this time). See TMEP 806.01(b); 15 USC 1051(b).

As I've blogged about before, it is not uncommon for entertainment companies to file several trademark applications for a broad range of goods and services prior to the premiere of a movie or television show. I would not be surprised if Universal and Amblin' file more applications for this film prior to the premiere date.

According to reports, Chris Pratt is back to star in this film, which is scheduled to hit theaters on June 22, 2018.
