Climate changes may have signaled the end for the dinosaurs (or was it an asteroid impact event?), but the COVID-19 pandemic could only slow down their latest march to movie theaters.
Jurassic World: Dominion is now a wrap–as reported this week by director Colin Trevorrow and returning star Sam Neill, according to comicbook.com. The most recent installment in the blockbuster Jurassic Park franchise will roar its way onto the big screen, as reported here in Horror News Network, on June 10, 2022.
With filming finally complete–following a couple of delays and setbacks this spring and summer due to the virus crisis–Dominion’s cast and crew can take a deep breath and look back on their cinematic accomplishment.
Neill–who recently shared a photo of himself and Trevorrow on his Twitter page–wrote that “there were days we thought we might not make it. But we have. We pulled off what seemed well-nigh impossible.” The actor had nothing but praise for all involved in the enormous undertaking. “Great crew. Lovely cast. Top director,” he tweeted. “Phew–and congratulations!”
The final product–co-written by Trevorrow and Emily Carmichael and produced by Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley–will be better off for the strict safety protocols put in place due to the pandemic, according to Trevorrow. “I think the close proximity to each other has made the movie better,” he said. “(It) made the emotion of the film richer. I think the movie will be stronger for it.”
Dominion–the sixth film in the Jurassic Park series from Universal Pictures–will pick up where 2018’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom left off, with several dinosaurs in the continental U.S. being sold at auction and others escaping into the wild. What you may call dangling and compelling plot threads.
The cast includes Neill–who returns with former co-stars Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum–as well as Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jake Johnson, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, Omar Sy, Isabelle Sermon and B.D. Wong.
