Now that production is underway on the third instalment of the Jurassic World franchise, the trilogy closer has finally revealed its full title. No longer shall we refer to it as Jurassic World 3, henceforth the sequel will be known as Jurassic World Dominion. Returning to the director's chair is Colin Trevorrow having sat out of Fallen Kingdom as he was meant to be directing Star Wars. However, that didn't pan out with Colin Trevorrow and Disney parting ways and J.J Abrams was drafted in to replace him.
Dominion promises to be a very different type of Jurassic movie and will be bringing back the trio of leading stars from Steven Spielberg's original 1993 blockbuster. Jurassic Park's Laura Dern, Sam Neill, and Jeff Goldblum are all back for more than just a pointless cameo with all three stars set for a meaty supporting role. The first Jurassic World landed in cinemas back in 2015, hitting all the right nostalgia notes, the revived franchise scored a massive $1.6 billion at the box office. The 2018 sequel, Fallen Kingdom, made a very healthy $1.3 billion worldwide, but its generic plot, tame scares, and wasting of Jeff Goldblum's talents left many fans unhappy.
An easy way to lure back potentially jaded former fans is to include Neil, Goldblum, and recent Oscar winner Laura Dern. Credit where credit is due, it worked as I know I'm going to be there on opening weekend. Plot details for Dominion remain a secret, but speaking to Entertainment Weekly back in 2018, Colin Trevorrow described the film as a "science thriller".
"If I could contextualise each film, I would say Jurassic World was an action-adventure, Fallen Kingdom is kind of a horror suspense film, and Jurassic World 3 will be a science thriller in the same way that Jurassic Park was."
Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Justice Smith, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, and BD Wong. Jurassic World Dominion is released on June 21, 2021.
