Jurassic World: Dominion release delayed a year to summer 2022
We'll have to wait a while longer before Jurassic World reopens its gates.
Universal Pictures announced Tuesday that it's pushing the release date of Jurassic World: Dominion from June 11, 2021, to June 10, 2022.
Dominion is the latest Hollywood tentpole to shift its release date due to the coronavirus pandemic and uncertainty over when audiences might return to movie theaters. The sixth film in the Jurassic franchise shut down production in March, but it became one of the first projects to resume shooting earlier this summer, with cast and crew returning to set in the U.K. Universal is reportedly spending millions of dollars to enact new safety measures on set, including rapid testing and temperature checks.
Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow returns to direct Dominion, which stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, as well as returning cast members Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum. The cast also includes Mamadou Athie, Scott Haze, Dichen Lachman, Daniella Pineda, Campbell Scott, Isabella Sermon, Justice Smith, Omar Sy, DeWanda Wise, and B.D. Wong.
Howard opened up about returning to set and socially distanced filming earlier this summer in an interview on the EW Live SiriusXM show.
"There's been a lot of communication," she said in June. "They are going above and beyond. We would never go back to work if we didn't feel safe. And, you know, we're taking it a day at a time and I'm very grateful to have a job."
