Jurassic World Dominion, this year’s most thrilling spectacle for a multi-generation audience and highly-awaited film, will finally open nationwide in local cinemas on June 8.
Directed by Colin Trevorrow and produced alongside Steven Spielberg, Jurassic World Dominion brings together for the first time Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard along with original cast members Academy Award winner Laura Dern, Sam Neill, and Jeff Goldblum. It also features an impressive international cast, including Mamoudou Athie, Scott Haze, Dichen Lachman, Daniella Pineda, Campbell Scott, Isabella Sermon, Justice Smith, Omar Sy, DeWanda Wise, and BD Wong.
Intended for the most immersive movie viewing experience and welcoming moviegoers back into theaters, Jurassic World Dominion’s heart-pounding action and mind-blowing scenes are set to bring the viewers to a breathtaking world where dinosaurs can now co-exist with mankind.
“Ever since I was a kid, I have wanted to see dinosaurs in their natural habitat,” director Colin Trevorrow says. “It may have taken a few decades, but with a little help from ILM, Universal and Amblin, it has finally happened. All over the world, we’ve recently started returning to theaters because movies bring us closer together,” Trevorrow says. “I think we need that shared experience right now … maybe more than we ever have.”
“With the franchise, I’m sharing the next few chapters of a story we’ve been telling around the campfire for thirty years,” Colin Trevorrow says. “This is a world that Steven Spielberg and Michael Crichton created together, and I have been fortunate enough to be a custodian of it for three films—in collaboration with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom director J.A. Bayona, the writers, and everyone who’s worked to make this what it is. I’m so grateful to Steven for allowing a new generation to continue telling the story that he and his collaborators began.”
Truly a trailblazer from the beginning, the Jurassic franchise once again has set the bar high with its epic conclusion within the movie industry by creating a safe space for everyone involved during the pandemic when the film was produced. With Dominion, it became the first major studio production to begin filming again due to the unprecedented COVID-protocol plan created by the filmmakers. The protocols they created soon become the industry gold standard, allowing productions across the industry to get back to work.
Pratt commends Universal and the film’s crew for creating and abiding by the strict COVID protocols that were put in place for the production. “It was expensive and arduous, and it required a whole new department being added to the production,” Pratt says. “At the time, I talked to people who would say, ‘Really? You’re going back into production? Are you sure that’s safe?’ And I would say, ‘Listen, if there’s an industry that’s cut out to handle this, it’s the film industry.’ If anyone has the resources, the will, the passion, and the necessity to get something done, it’s a film crew. I think it’s a feat of human ingenuity that we were able to be one of the first film productions to put all of the protocols in place and keep everyone safe.”
Presented by Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment, catch Jurassic World Dominion on June 8 in cinemas nationwide. Also available on select 2D and 3D IMAX screens.
