“Jurassic World Dominion” Trailer Is Awe-Inspiring

Jurassic Park stomped into theaters in 1993, briefly becoming the highest grossing movie of all time. It was an absolute phenomenon, and one of the greatest pieces of blockbuster filmmaking ever made. Every sequel since has been an attempt to recapture that magic. It's never quite worked, but it has been a reliable box office earner. Both Jurassic World movies raked in more than $1 billion worldwide.

Now comes Dominion, billed as an "epic conclusion" to the trilogy and the series as a whole. Colin Trevorrow returns as director after handing duties over to J.A. Bayona for Fallen Kingdom. The film adds new cast members, including DeWanda Wise and Mamoudou Athie, while bringing back fan favorites from the new series and the main trio from the first film. The latter - Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum and Oscar winner Laura Dern - look just as good if not better than they did nearly 30 years ago. They'll all be adjusting to a dangerous new world where dinosaurs roam free.

Jurassic World Dominion arrives in theaters on June 10.


About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
