'It all started here.' The dinosaurs are back in the first trailer for Jurassic World: Dominion.
The first Jurassic Park movie was an adventure 65 million years in the making. Steven Spielberg's blockbuster revolutionised special effects and became one of the most beloved movies of all time.
Nearly 30 years later, the franchise has grossed more than $5 billion worldwide, with the Jurassic World saga breaking box office records from its arrival in 2016. Soon, the old and new will come together in Dominion, the concluding chapter of the trilogy.
It's set to be a bit of Endgame-esque finale, with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard reprising their roles alongside legacy stars Laura Dern, Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum. 'It’s got pretty much everybody in it. It’s going to feel very much like how Endgame brought everything together in Marvel,' Pratt told Ellen.
Plot details are still relatively slim right now, nor is it clear how the past characters will be reintroduced. 'The movie will ask the question, 'If dinosaurs lived amongst us, would you be safe?' And the answer is no,' director Colin Trevorrow earlier said.
If you cast your mind back to the ending of Fallen Kingdom, Goldblum's Dr. Malcolm declares the beginning of a new neo-Jurassic Age with humans and dinosaurs co-existing, after caged dinos were freed from being auctioned off on the black market.
'To me, [Dominion] is a culmination of one story that's been told. When you got to the end of the Jurassic Park trilogy, it may not have been as clear in what the complete story of those three movies was because they were a bit more episodic in the way that they were approached… when you watch Dominion, you really feel like you are learning how much of a story that first set of movies was and how everything that happened in those movies actually informs what ultimately is able to happen in this,' Trevorrow told EW.
Prior to today's trailer, Universal released a 10-minute short titled 'Battle at Big Rock', showing a family caught in the middle of a terrifying fight between a carnivorous dinosaur and family of plant-eating Nasutoceratops. A five-minute preview also screened with Fast and Furious 9 last year, showing 'what Earth looked like long before humans existed and tell the origin story of how dinosaur DNA first came to be carried by a mythic mosquito.'
Jurassic World Dominion hits cinemas on June 10, 2022.
