Oof, that looks... dumb. It looks like they designed the script to move from set piece to set piece, without really much of an excuse. The whole trailer overall reminds me of Rise of Skywalker

The trailer is going to be the best part of the film.

People bitch for decades that they should do something different and dinosaurs roaming the planet is pretty fucking different... and it garners... "That's dumb."

It's like Star Wars. It doesn't matter what they do, they can't win.

The trailer is about what I expected. Basically the same movie weíve seen five times over. The original cast returning doesnít get me all that excited either.

Franchises are starting to burn out on that idea and either bringing back the old cast works well in favor of the story or is just a cheap gimmick to rope people back in. I feel like itís going to be the latter in this case.

My pitch on what they should have done differently has always been, "don't make the movie"

I like all five Jurassic movies, and I'll probably like this one.

They aren't high art; they are what they are.

I go into them expecting nothing more than two hours of realistic-looking dinosaurs chasing, terrorizing, and eating people. I don't need a great script for them, just something serviceable and that doesn't go too far into left field. Like those rumors from several years ago about how a Jurassic Park sequel would have the military training cyborg velociraptors or somesuch.

The only thing I ask for is to include some new dinos in each movie.

Re: Jurassic World: Dominion (2022, D: Trevorrow)

So in the last movie, the dinosaurs were released somewhere in the US and then they're just all over the planet? How would the land based dinosaurs spread and how could they even have the time to grow to an adult size without people killing them?

The Jurassic Park movies have always be pretty contained to the ďparkĒ part (T-Rex loose in the suburbs aside). Seeing cowboys herd dinosaurs across the plains is pretty damn different.

I think this looks really great and the two generations of casts together is super fun. And a feathered dinosaur! Fun! Iím more excited for this than anything outside of Marvel movies.

Shhh... you're not supposed to ask questions. Just read the bolded part below.. or

But seriously, just a quick thought, there are billionaires around the globe willing to pay big bucks for dinosaurs for their own JP zoos or personal entertainment or for sport or whatever. The rich will breed them, reverse engineer and make more. Pretty easy to see them, getting out, spreading and breeding in the wild. Life finds a way. In fact it's almost as if the previous movie set up this exact plot.

Exactly. I've been preaching the same since JPIII. I just want to be entertained for 2 hours with dinosaurs chasing and/or eating people. And yeah, that rumored military plot was absurd.

This franchise is also near and dear to my heart. I took my girls to the 2012 3D re-release who were then 5 & 7 at the time. The franchise became my oldest's favorite series, and the original is her favorite movie. She's had two themed JP birthday parties (8 & 16) and even wanted to be a paleontologist for awhile. She just put on a Jurassic Park themed version of Hamlet for a school project two days ago. She took lead for her group and made all the props. She made Hammond's cane a few years back and used that too. My youngest loves the series as well, but not with quite as much fervor. So.... Dominion will officially be the first movie we see in the theater since pre-Covid. This is a "can't miss" for us.

In the last movie we saw them being auctioned off to wealthy bidders.

There's a black market for them.

Some of the dinosaurs that escaped into the US were captured and transported off to Europe and other countries to be sold. Then they either escaped captivity before they were sold or after they were sold.

In the original Jurassic Park movie they questioned the wisdom of throwing dinosaurs into the modern human world. They quickly became a commodity and an invasive species.

And, since they're a commodity, you're also probably going to be seeing breeders as well, which would account for the rapid expansion of their population. There were also a lot of "legitmate" creation programs as well, the original Jurassic Park and however many experimental programs Hammond had hidden on islands, and then Jurassic World park that came out decades later. There were probably hundreds of these things roaming around in contained locations by the time Jurassic World opened. Those then get poached and "life finds a way."

Yeah, I'm thinking this might be my first trip back to the theater as well since pre-Covid.

Yeah, this could be a reason, but honestly, why bother thinking about it. It's Jurassic World, just go with it.

Collider can confirm through multiple sources that the run time of Jurassic World Dominion, the forthcoming sixth entry in the long-lived big-budget franchise, will top out at 2 hours and 26 minutes. The Colin Trevorrow-directed epic from a script co-written with Emily Carmichael features a returning cast of franchise favorites including Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Bryce Dallas Howard, Sam Neil, and Chris Pratt.

Honestly, it grew on me for it's observatory. I mean, seriously, if I were to travel back in time and tell kid me that that I'd be able to see a haunted house horror movie with a dinosaur one day I'd lapped it up like cherry Coke.

Re: Jurassic World Dominion (2022, D: Trevorrow)

With Neill, Dern, and Goldblum returning, it may be enough to get me to the theater...even though I hate Trevorrow's JP movies (well, only saw the P.O.S that was Jurassic World)

Re: Jurassic World Dominion (2022, D: Trevorrow)

Surprised there has been so little activity on this thread, AV Club has a post up noting that this entry in the Jurassic Park/World Franchise has divided critics. Many call it over-long and stuffed with too many side stories that do not really merge into each other all that well as the film goes on. Other than a few gripes about the special effects, those are mostly being praised and many folks are saying the dino action is solid in sections in the movie, and the film is at its best when the OG cast and the new cast are on the screen together. A critic does note that Bryce Dallas Howard seems to get a solid story-arc in the film.

I still plan to buy my ticket to a Dolby Theater showing for this Saturday (I have an AMC Newpark right up the street from where I live), and do feel I will have fun watching the film, but I guess any thoughts in my head that this film might turn out to be something special should be tempered. I can live with a film that just asks you to suspend tons of disbelief and is fairly entertaining for about 2 1/2 hours.
