It all started here.
We’ll be getting our first look at Jurassic World: Dominion later this month, we’ve learned tonight, with a 5-minute extended preview playing ahead of F9 *only* in IMAX theaters!
We’ve been promised, “The Extended Preview provides a sense of the film’s thrilling spectacle intended for the biggest and most immersive screens. Partially set 65 million years ago, during the Cretaceous period, the action-packed Preview features dinosaurs that have never been seen in a Jurassic film– and reveals mind-blowing scenes and pulse-racing surprises.”
The press release explains in further detail, “The five-minute Special Extended Preview of Jurassic World: Dominion, which audiences will be able to experience in full-screen 1:90:1 IMAX® aspect ratio, includes a prologue to the film’s narrative and is set 65 million years ago, during the Cretaceous period, when dinosaurs roamed the entire Earth. The breathtaking, action-packed scenes, featuring Oscar® winner Michael Giacchino’s iconic score, reveal 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. The Preview features seven new species of dinosaurs, created by the legendary Industrial Light & Magic, that have never been seen in any Jurassic film before. But the Preview doesn’t end there and holds some real trademark Jurassic surprises with dinosaurs later roaming an Earth that is decidedly less theirs alone.”
F9 opens in US theaters on June 25, 2021. While you wait, check out a new Dominion teaser poster below, along with a sneak peek at one of the new species we’ll be meeting!
Dominion‘s cast includes familiar and new faces such as Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, Dichen Lachman, Mamoudou Athie, DeWanda Wise and Scott Haze.
Plot details are still under wraps, but Fallen Kingdom promised a sequel wherein the dinosaurs are now on the mainland… and humans are falling to the bottom of the food chain.
“[Dominion is] a celebration of the whole franchise,” director Colin Trevorrow recently told Entertainment Weekly. “[Dominion] is a culmination of one story that’s been told.”
Jurassic World: Dominion will open wide in theaters on June 10, 2022.
