Chris Pratt’s Owen Grady jogging after dinosaurs in a snowy mountain landscape, Bryce Dallas Howard’s Claire Dearing being pursued by them on European roofs, and the legacy trio of Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, and Laura Dern returning.
These are some of the pictures from the BTS reel Universal introduced for Jurassic World: Dominion. While the studio focused on their record up until March 2022 during its CinemaCon presentation Wednesday, it gave the crowd here at Caesars Colosseum Theater a brief look at the June 10, 2022 release that finishes off the dinosaur franchise made by Michael Crichton and Steven Spielberg.
“This movie asks the single question: What if dinosaurs lived among us? Would we be safe?” Dominion filmmaker Colin Trevorrow said.
The fast BTS sizzle reel included old footage of Spielberg on set of the first film, 1993’s Jurassic Park, disclosing to Joseph Mazzello (who played Tim in the original) about the mosquito caught in amber on the cane of Hammond (Richard Attenborough).
Current interviews of Neill had the New Zealand actor exclaiming, “We had an enormous amount of fun on the first film.” Added Dern about how Spielberg brought dinosaurs to life on the big screen: “There was an energy on the set that this was the first time you were seeing it.”
Said Pratt, “When you saw the dinosaur in the trailer and the ripples on the water (in the cup in the Jeep), it defined my generation.”
Said Howard regarding Jurassic Park: “Cinema forever had changed.”
