First “Jurassic World: Dominion” Teaser Reveals Glimpse at Long-Awaited Dino Epic

We’ve been waiting for a peek at director Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World: Dominion and Universal has answered our dino prayers. A new teaser reveals our first look at the third film in the Jurassic World trilogy, and for those of us who are heading to see F9 on IMAX, there’s a lot more where this came from—an extended special preview of Dominion will play before Dom and the family put the pedal to the metal.

While the clip’s brief, it does show just how staggeringly realistic the dinosaurs are, and although we’ve grown accustomed to photorealistic visual effects, there’s something special about it when it’s being used to reanimate dinosaurs. There’s also a hint at the coming dinosaur battle between the T-Rex and a Giganotosaurus, one of the Jurassic matchups we’re excited to see. If you’re going to see a movie on IMAX, you can’t pick a more perfect choice than one whose main attractions are often literally 40-feet tall.

What else do we know about Dominion? Well, that newcomers to the franchise like DeWanda Wise and Mamaoudou Athie will join returning champs Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Jake Johnson. Oh, and there are some Jurassic Park legends in the mix as well. We’re talking about Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, and Laura Dern, who are all reprising their roles.

We also know that the Dominion shoot was no easy feat—it was a 9-month long effort that came in the middle of the pandemic. Production shut down for a bit and was then re-started this July with a huge host of new precautions to ensure the cast and crew could do their work safely. Production paused again in October after a few COVID-19 positive tests. Throughout it all, Trevorrow and his team soldiered on, adapting to the changing environment.

Jurassic World: Dominion is due in theaters on June 10, 2022. Check out the teaser below.
