‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ Delays Release to 2022
Dinosaurs will not dominate the screen again until 2022.
Jurassic World: Dominion will now debut on June 10, 2022 - a year later than originally planned. Universal Pictures, the studio behind the science fiction adventure franchise, initially planned the film for the summer of 2021.
While director Colin Trevorrow announced the release date change on Twitter, he also debuted the first teaser poster for the film with the iconic "Jurassic" franchise logo in amber, a recall to the 1993 blockbuster "Jurassic Park."
"Over the past three months, I've been working with an exceptional cast and crew on a film that we can't wait to share with the world," said Trevorrow. "Even if we have to wait a little longer, everything will be worth it. Let us stay healthy until then and take care of each other."

"Jurassic World: Dominion," which stopped filming in March due to the pandemic, was one of the first major films to resume production. The studio took intensive measures to keep the set coronavirus free, including frequent testing, temperature checks, and isolating the cast and key crew at a resort hotel. According to insiders, the cost of these protocols is expected to be in the range of $ 5 million. "Jurassic World: Dominion" has not finished filming yet, although sources say it's about three weeks after it's boxed.
"Jurassic World: Dominion," the sixth film in the 27-year series, will again play Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. They are joined by a star-studded group that includes Laura Dern, Sam Neill, and Jeff Goldblum. Trevorrow returns to directing after directing Jurassic World in 2015. He also co-wrote the script for the 2018 sequel, Fallen Kingdom.
The “Jurassic” series is considered the crown jewel of the Universal franchise plan. In total, the five films generated more than $ 5 billion at the global box office. "Jurassic World," which decades later revived Jurassic Park history, was a massive commercial hit, grossing $ 1.6 billion worldwide. The sequel "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" also joined the billion dollar club and achieved ticket sales of over $ 1.3 billion.
Universal has been busy making changes to its release calendar in the wake of the pandemic and has recently postponed the sequel to “Fast & Furious” “F9” from April 2, 2021 to May 28, 2021. Numerous films have announced delays in the last few days. including "No Time to Die", "The Batman" and "Matrix 4".
