In a interview with Empire magazine, Jurassic World Dominion director Colin Trevorrow teased the appearance of a new dinosaur named Giganotosaurus in the upcoming film, comparing it to a classic DC villain. With an anticipated release date of June 10, the “Jurassic World Dominin 2022” franchise has dropped its first trailer for the upcoming summer blockbuster “Jurassic World Dominion.” With a series that has been around since 1993, there is always a high standard for success; but if the movie’s trailer is any indication, it sounds like it’s ticking all the boxes to bring the old and new cast together for one thrilling ride.
“I wanted something that felt like the Joker,” Trevorrow said of the late Cretaceous period dinosaur, also known as Giga. “He just wants to watch the world burn.”
Trevorrow added that Giga hails from BioSyn Valley. BioSyn, if he’ll recall, is the company that stole the dinosaur embryos from InGen in the original movie and will also play a big role in the new movie. “BioSyn was awarded the contract to house the dinosaurs that have been captured around the world through various governments,” Trevorrow explained. “They claim that it is a research center where they can study the pharmaceutical values of animals. But there are other things going on.”
The sixth installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, and the third in the Jurassic World trilogy, is set four years after the destruction of Isla Nublar, which served as the site of the tourist park, Jurassic World. Now dinosaurs live and hunt alongside humans all over the world. This fragile balance will reshape the future and determine, once and for all, whether humans will remain the apex predators on a planet they now share with history’s most fearsome creatures.
Dominion will see Jurassic World veterans Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt return, with Jurassic Park alumni Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum also reprising their roles. Dichen Lachman, Mamoudou Athie, Scott Haze, Daniella Pineda, Campbell Scott, Isabella Sermon, Justice Smith, Omar Sy, DeWanda Wise, BD Wong, Elva Trill and Dimitri Thivaios will also star in the film, which will be released theatrically through Universal.

Trevorrow wrote the screenplay with Emily Carmichael, from her and Derek Connolly’s story, which in turn was based on characters created by Michael Crichton. Patrick Crowley and Frank Marshall produced, with Trevorrow, Alexandra Ferguson-Derbyshire and Steven Spielberg serving as executive producers.
