Release Date: June 10, 2022
Thoughts: I have friendly neighbors who never would have called the police on me today when I screamed watching this new trailer for Jurassic World: Dominion. If the police had arrived, I would have invited them in and brought them to the part of the first full look at the sixth film in the long-running franchise when original stars Laura Dern, Sam Neill, and Jeff Goldblum appeared. Actually, more like when Dern shows up and reunites with Neill in a setting that feels familiar to those that remember how the first movie began.
This lightning bolt of nostalgia is just one of many thrills to be had in this maxed-out ride through the adventure awaiting audiences in the final chapter of a trilogy that began with 2015’s Jurassic World. Though 2018’s sequel Fallen Kingdom didn’t meet the expectations of many, I appreciated its gentle attempt at pivoting. Under the guidance of the first chapter’s director Colin Trevorrow and backed by a humungous production, the series has clearly course-corrected in a significant way. Did I tear up a bit during this trailer? Unashamedly I nod my head yes. Already high on my list of anticipated films of 2022, Jurassic World: Dominion is now in the #1 slot.
