The first time Hollywood embraced Michael Crichton’s techno thrillers for an island theme park full of real DNA clones found in fossilized mosquitoes, it extended the case to three Jurassic Park movies. During the original trilogy, the new monsters ran, wreaked havoc and tried to kill every human they found. In 2015, the franchise returned with “Jurassic World”, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. Located two decades after the original “Jurassic Park”, the story focuses on a new dinosaur theme park that opens near Costa Rica. But even with enhanced security measures, things go wrong again when a genetically modified dinosaur of enormous size and human intelligence (Indominus rex) escapes, sparking a full-scale dinosaur uprising.
The movie is the sixth highest grossing film of all time, and the 2018 sequel, “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” (with new dinosaurs, an insidious conspiracy and an ominous volcano) sold almost as many tickets. After a cessation of production In March 2020, due to a coronavirus lockdown, the release of the franchise’s next chapter in the summer of 2021, “Jurassic World: Dominion”, was postponed. Colin Trevorrow, who directed all three new films, announced Twitter in October 2020, “Dominion” (with a cast full of actors from both series “Jurassic Park”) will arrive on June 10, 2022.
