The “Jurassic Park” films have a special place in my heart and not because I’m a huge fan myself. But they happen to be my son’s favorite franchise (at least next to Star Wars). To clarify, for me the first “Jurassic Park” was an extraordinary experience that still holds up today. I absolutely love it. And I enjoyed the two sequels that followed (to lesser degrees). I had some fun with 2015’s “Jurassic World” but felt 2018’s “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” was a huge disappointment. As goofy as it was, “Fallen Kingdom” did leave the series in an interesting place. And that brings me to the new trailer for “Jurassic World Dominion”.
Set four years after the previous film, “Dominion” takes place in a new era with genetically engineered dinosaurs and humankind attempting to co-exist. After being released on America’s mainland, the dinosaurs have turned society on its head – the very result of mankind‘s meddling with nature. It’s hard to really nail down the plot as the trailer is mostly full of dinosaur spectacle and some awesome returning faces. But it looks like such a wild ride, and I am incredibly curious to see where they are going with this.
“Jurassic World Dominion” hits theaters June 10th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
