Jurassic World: Dominion Is In The Can, Colin Trevorrow Reveals

The production of Universal Pictures' series capper "Jurassic World: Dominion" has been a long and eventful one, to be sure. The blockbuster began lensing in February of 2020, then got shut down on March due to the pandemic, and thanks to a handy insurance loophole (no longer available for post-Covid productions) was able to resume shooting four months later with proper (and expensive) protocols in place. 

Now returning director Colin Trevorrow has revealed on Twitter that the film is now locked and ready to rock with plenty of leeway before its scheduled June 10, 2022 release date: 

"Last night we put the last bit of reverb on the last roar. Thanks to Al Nelson, Gwen Whittle, Pete Horner, Chris Boyes and everyone at Skywalker Sound for putting so much heart and soul into our mix for #JurassicWorldDominion. It is alive."

This news of the film finally getting an official wrap comes after we got to see a five-minute sneak peek in front of IMAX showings of "F9" back in June. You can read a description of those minutes here, and read our interview with Trevorrow about them here

Trevorrow told Empire several months ago that the post-production processes for this new film were much more casual and considered than they normally are:

"Normally, because we're always cramped and trying to make the release date, especially in some of the territories where we're releasing earlier, we're finishing visual effects while we're mixing sound, and right after we do the score. This time, we actually got to do all of those things separately, and on their own time. Especially the sound mix — we will be completely done with visual effects when we're mixing sound. So, it's just a very humane way to make a movie. I wish I could do it this way all the time. It's definitely taken a bit of the intensity out of what that process normally is."

The sixth film in the franchise is set to star Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, and Isabella Sermon, while Laura Dern, Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, and BD Wong are all returning for reportedly significant roles for the first time since the original Jurassic Park trilogy.

With a screenplay by Trevorrow, Emily Carmichael and Derek Connolly, "Jurassic World: Dominion" will hit theaters in the U.S. and most other world markets on June 10, 2022.
