After a long wait, we are just six months away from the release of Jurassic World: Dominion. A new image (via Empire) has been unveiled, giving us our first look at star Chris Pratt fleeing from an Atrociraptor.
“Where the Velociraptor is a little bit more of a stealth hunter, the Atrociraptors are a bit more brutish,” director Colin Trevorrow tells Empire, explaining the image you’ll find below. “These things will just come at you. And in this particular case, they’ve picked his scent, and they’re not going to stop until he’s dead. They’re pretty brutal. They’re pretty vicious.”
Brilliant filmmaker Colin Trevorrow, who was behind Jurassic World, directs from a script written by Emily Carmichael, based on a story by Trevorrow and Derek Connolly.
Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and BD Wong are all returning for Dominion as are stars of the original trilogy, Sam Neill, Lauren Dern, and Jeff Goldblum. New cast members include María Gabriela de Faría (Deadly Class) and Joseph Marcell (“The Sandman”).
While much of the film’s plot is being kept quiet still, we do know that the dinosaurs that escaped the auction in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom are now roaming the US, and people are no longer at the top of the food chain.
As for the dino in the image, the Atrociraptor is in the genus of saurornitholestine dromaeosaurid and is a theropod dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous period, 65 million years ago. It is estimated to have been six feet long and extremely fast. The only known specimen was found in 1995.
Jurassic World: Dominion will open in theaters on June 10, 2022. Are you excited?
