It’s hard to believe that the second Jurassic Park trilogy is soon to be completed, with the first instalment Jurassic World feeling like a product of the mid-noughties, whilst Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom feels like it never even came out at all. 2022 will bring us the final film in the Jurassic World trilogy, Jurassic World: Dominion, with a first look at the trailer being released for fans at Las Vegas CinemaCon.
Featuring the likes of Chris Pratt’s Owen Grady riding across snowy mountaintops and Bryce Dallas Howard’s Claire Dearin being chased by a pack of dinosaurs, Jurassic World: Dominion looks to be continuing the bombastic tone of the previous two films in the trilogy. Such was shown at Universals presentation at CinemaCon where they outlined their slate until March 2022, whilst providing a surprising sneak peek into their summer releases.
The footage involved multiple behind-the-scenes sequences showing Steven Spielberg on set of the very first Jurassic Park movie, discussing major plot points such as the mosquito trapped in amber atop the cane of Hammond, played by Richard Attenborough.
Co-written, EP’d and directed by Colin Trevorrow, Dominion was shot in the UK during the course of the pandemic and looks to be taking the franchise in a direction yet unprecedented. If the conclusion of Fallen Kingdom, the series’ previous instalment is anything to go by, Dominion will likely see the dinosaurs spread from their humble island and take over a nearby city.
Speaking of his excitement toward the new project, and particularly the new inspiring prologue sequence, director Colin Trevorrow commented: “Ever since I was a kid, I have wanted to see dinosaurs in their natural habitat…It may have taken a few decades, but with a little help from ILM, Universal and Amblin, it has finally happened,” Trevorrow said in a statement about the film preview earlier this year.
