Further to last week’s release of the first mouth-watering trailer for Jurassic World Dominion; the epic conclusion to the Jurassic era; Super Bowl LVI played host to a new spot. And although it didn’t reveal anything particularly new compared to the previous trailer, it still served as a pleasant reminder of just how far they look to have pushed the bar once more to ensure audiences are left on a maximum high as they bid farewell to an era.
This time around, two generations unite for the first time as Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are joined by Oscar®-winner Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, and Sam Neill in what has been described as a “bold, timely and breathtaking new adventure that spans the globe,” propelling “the more than $5 billion franchise into daring, uncharted territory, featuring never-seen dinosaurs, breakneck action, and astonishing new visual effects.”
Helmed by Colin Trevorrow, who steered 2015’s Jurassic World to a record-shattering $1.7 billion global box office, from a screenplay by Emily Carmichael (Battle at Big Rock) & Trevorrow from a story by Derek Connolly (Jurassic World) & Trevorrow, Dominion takes place four years after Isla Nublar has been destroyed. Dinosaurs now live – and hunt – alongside humans all over the world. This fragile balance will reshape the future and determine, once and for all, whether human beings are to remain the apex predators on a planet they now share with history’s most fearsome creatures.
The film also welcomes new characters played by DeWanda Wise (She’s Gotta Have It), Emmy nominee Mamoudou Athie (“Archive 81”), Dichen Lachman (“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”), Scott Haze (Minari) and Campbell Scott (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) whilst returning cast members include BD Wong as Dr. Henry Wu, Justice Smith as Franklin Webb, Daniella Pineda as Dr. Zia Rodriguez, and Omar Sy as Barry Sembenè.
From Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment, Jurassic World Dominion is slated for a June 10 theatrical release, and, in the meanwhile, we’ll leave you with the SBLVI Spot so “Hold on to your butts!”
