Dominion Trailer Features a T-Rex at the Drive-In

Universal Pictures finally released that extended preview for Jurassic World: Dominion that was shown exclusively in IMAX screenings of F9 over the summer.

The video, titled "The Prologue," begins 65 million years in the past, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. After exploring several species of dinosaurs, including some with feathers -- a noticeable change for the Jurassic franchise -- we're transported to the present-day, as a Tyrannosaurus rex is chased by a helicopter through the woods. The T-rex soon makes its way to a drive-in movie theater, flattening cars as moviegoers run in fear. An armed man in the helicopter attempts to shoot the dino down with a massive tranquilizer dart but misses as the T-rex makes its escape.

Shortly after the first photo from Jurassic World: Dominion was released, director Colin Trevorrow shed light on how the film will differ from its predecessors by showing dinosaurs in their element. "Ever since I was a kid, I have wanted to see dinosaurs in their natural habitat," he explained. "It may have taken a few decades, but with a little help from ILM, Universal and Amblin, it has finally happened. This preview is just a glimpse of the film we’ve made. It’s an epic celebration of everything Steven Spielberg and Michael Crichton created, and I can’t wait to share it with the world next summer."

"To me, [Dominion] is a culmination of one story that's been told," Trevorrow explained in January. "When you got to the end of the Jurassic Park trilogy, it may not have been as clear in what the complete story of those three movies was because they were a bit more episodic in the way that they were approached. But this trilogy is not that way. It's very much a serialized story. What was important for me was, when you watch Dominion, you really feel like you are learning how much of a story that the first set of movies were and how everything that happened in those movies actually informs what ultimately is able to happen in this. If kids who are born today are going to be presented with six Jurassic Park movies — you hope the parents will buy them the box set — you hope they are going to get to feel like they watch one long story."

Jurassic World: Dominion stomps into theaters June 10, 2022.
