Remember the iconic Jurassic Park that Steven Spielberg introduced to the whole world in 1990? The film is considered to be a milestone in the history of world cinema. Banking on an out-an-out depiction of those extinct creatures, Spielberg created something that was never seen on the silver screen before and was never to be forgotten.
Despite a few scientific inaccuracies here and there, Jurassic Park managed to hold its sway over the audience and became a blockbuster. It raked in one billion dollars across the globe and won three Academy Awards for sound design and visual effects. Next came Jurassic Park - The Lost World in 1997 and Jurassic Park III in 2001. Jurassic World came in 2015, followed by Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in 2018. Now in the queue is Jurassic World Dominion. Have you seen the trailer yet?
Jurassic World Dominion
The sci-fi adventure film has Colin Trevorrow at the helm. The screenplay is written by Carmichael and it has been based on a story penned down by Trevorrow himself, along with Derek Connolly, an American screenwriter, and his writing partner. The film itself is based on Characters by Michael Crichton.
Jurassic World Dominion is the sixth installment in the Jurassic Park film series as well as the third film in the Jurassic World trilogy. The film will be produced by Patric Crowley and Frank Marshall and will star some of the biggest names, including Mamoudou Athie, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Scott Haze, Bryce Dallas Howard, Dichen Lachman, Sam Neil, Daniella Pineda, and Chris Pratt, and others.
The theatrical release of the film by Universal Pictures is scheduled to be on June 10, 2022, in Dolby Studios, IMAX, and RealID 3D. The entire budget of the film is $165 million. It was previously scheduled for a 2021 release, but the COVID-19 pandemic took a toll on the film's development and the release was postponed. Four months after it is released in theaters, fans can stream it on Peacock.
Jurassic World Dominion will deal with a Neo-Mesozoic era, a time when humans can come across creatures in the wild. In a sneak preview that was released in 2021, fans saw a large theropod that's somewhat inspired by Giganotosaurus, engaging with the classic species that viewers came across in almost all the movies in the Jurassic Park series, the powerful Tyrannosaurus Rex. The trailer also shows the classic Raptors, including Atrociraptor as well as a threatening theropod that's modeled on the lines of the Pyroraptor.
The Allosaurus and Carnotaurus make a cameo appearance. The Therizinosaurus can be seen roaming across the Sequoia forest. Though their actual appearance is highly debatable, it is perceived that they had large arms and claws. Even though they had claws, they were largely herbivores. Other plant-eating dinosaurs such as the Apatosaurus and Nasutoceratops also make a brief appearance in the movie. The non-dinosaur species that you can catch in the trailer are a marine reptile called Mosasaurus and the largest pterosaur species called Quetzalcoatlus. Let's check out the official trailer released by Universal Pictures in February 2022.
What Did the Cast and Crew Have to Say?
Trevorrow hinted how Jurassic World Dominion might turn out to be a film that can tie the entire Jurassic series together. To him, the film is a culmination of one story that is being told till now. As a director, his main aim was to tie all other films of the franchise to weave a cohesive story. When this film will be released in the theaters, it will turn out to be a complete story, this being the last episode.
The director is confident of the fact that the audience will be able to relate to the unfolding of the story till now and what's going to happen in Jurassic World Dominion. Chris Pratt threw some light on what's going to happen when the dinosaurs come out in the open after the island gets blown up and how things get completely messed up. After all, seeing a T-Rex in the open can send a silver down anyone's spine.
According to Trevorrow, Jurassic World Dominion can be classified as a science thriller. Nevertheless, the fans are eagerly waiting for June 10 to arrive when they will queue up in front of the theaters to enter the world of dinosaurs one more time. The trailer has left them dumbfounded.
