New images from Jurassic World: Dominion have been released at the same time as a New York Times report on the COVID-19 guidelines being followed by the cast and crew. While these are not the first images from the Jurassic World: Dominion set (franchise alums Laura Dern and Sam Neill have that honor), they do feature 100% more dinosaurs than previous images.
On Friday, Universal Pictures released an attention-grabbing photo featuring one ferocious-looking dinosaur caught in the rain. It’s unclear what or who the dinosaur is roaring at, but heaven help the prey caught in those chompers. Jurassic Park fans might get some distinctly nostalgic vibes off this photo, too, as it seems to hearken back to some of the 1993 movie’s most memorable scenes featuring the T-Rex stomping around in the rain, finally free of its cage and ready to attack any and all unsuspecting humans. As one of those fans, I can’t help but wonder (and hope beyond all hope) that maybe this is a photo taken from a scene featuring Sattler (Dern) and Grant (Neill) in a moment which consciously references these Jurassic Park rain scenes rather than just hearkening back to them.
In addition to the new dinosaur image, the Jurassic World Instagram shared more photos from the set on Friday. There are three photos total, with one showing a crew member capturing sound as two actors (could that be Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt?) make their way through the forest, another showing a crew member checking in on some CGI baby dinosaurs, and a third showing the special “Green Zone” lounge which has been set up for actors to hang in during downtime and which also follows the new health and safety guidelines for the shoot.
Jurassic World: Dominion is scheduled for release on June 11, 2021. Check out even more photos from the set of the third Jurassic World movie below. For more, check out our 2021 upcoming movie release calendar.
