The highly-anticipated trilogy-ending “Jurassic World 3” has just begun production. And to commemorate the occasion, director Colin Trevorrow decided to be a little sneaky and unveil the new title for the film, “Jurassic World: Dominion.”
In a tweet, Trevorrow took a page out of Matt Reeves’ playbook and announced the kickoff to production on the third ‘Jurassic World’ film with a picture of the slate. And though the picture doesn’t offer any clues as to what fans can expect from the film, the tweet does show that the new title of the film is “Jurassic World: Dominion.”
Obviously, that title isn’t much of a showstopper, but then again, it’s not like Trevorrow would name the film, “Jurassic World: Shit Goes Crazy And Dinosaurs Eat Tons Of People.” So, for those hoping that the title would somehow reveal what is going to happen, you’re out of luck. Interestingly, ‘Dominion’ is the name of territory under control of a powerful body. So, in a way, it’s a bit redundant to call a film “Jurassic World: Dominion.” But hell, it sounds pretty cool.
While ‘Dominion’ doesn’t have the same finality as “Avengers: Endgame,” ‘Jurassic World’ star Chris Pratt recently said that the Marvel film is a close approximation of the size that fans can expect in the upcoming dinosaur film. In addition to the scale, which is obviously going to be massive (we’re talking life-sized dinosaurs roaming the world), the cast is also getting super-sized, as “Jurassic Park” stars Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, and Sam Neill are all expected to return.
Yes, ‘Dominion’ does seem to be the final film in this iteration of the ‘Jurassic’ franchise, but it’s important to note that the first two films in the new series have both grossed over $1.3 billion. So, it’s unlikely that ‘Dominion’ is going to be the true end to the franchise, as studios nowadays don’t let these legendary film series end when they’re still making tons of cash. But that’s a discussion for another day.
“Jurassic World: Dominion” is expected to hit theaters on June 11, 2021.
