Jurassic World: Dominion (Colin Trevorrow 2022)

The prologue came at a very convenient time as I had just (literally yesterday) finished rewatching all movies in sequence. My low opinion of Trevorrow and Giacchino stands, and my lukewarm connection to the whole WORLD reboot, but I kinda liked the 65 million years in the past bit. The last bit connotes more THE LOST WORLD to me, and if the upcoming film is all just an extended "San Diego sequence", GODZILLA-style, I will be disappointed. I liked it more when it was just in the jungle.

 

(For the record, I absolutely adore THE LOST WORLD, but the San Diego bit presented just enough GODZILLA-isms to be tantalizing; I wouldn't want a whole film like that in the JP universe -- then I'd rather watch any of the recent GODZILLA films again).

Hmm, i expected more expectacularity…. The choreography… was a bit weird. What is the iguanodon doing in front of a sleeping giganotosaur….and before a waken tyrannosaur…. I would have put the mosquito landing on the tree sap to better reflect mr dna story….

 

didnt we agree that the oviraptor was incubating its eggs and not robbing a nest????? Its like perpetuating a misconception…

 

the music was very low mixed… maybe it is a temporary track. I miss that the film does not start woth the indominous motif like the other two…

Apparently this prologue is NOT in the film. If that also means the Drive-In portion, remains to be seen. Hear it from the director himself:

 

 

Yeah it seems it wont be part of the movie…but at times he says it is part of the film… maybe they changed their minds. Definately he says he is glad to share the scene now and not just show it to people in the bluray.

Thought the prologue lacked a strong through-line. I would have had the mosquito be the main focus and have it flit around with the camera following. 

 

I suspect it's a cut down version of whatever the film has. The film prologue probably ends with the mosquito landing on a tree and getting stuck in the sap, as speculated.

I would think that releasing final footage of a highly anticipated movie over 7 months before the film’s release would not be in Universal Studios’ programming.

 

That was certainly the studios attitude’s according to director Colin Treverrow and composer Michael Giacchino, who introduced the screening of the final-cut prologue from 'JW: Fallen Kingdom' at the Kennedy Center, Washington, DC on May 30, 2018 during the world premiere of the JW-LTP concert.  They asked the audience to shut-off their phones during the screening. To make sure that request was followed during the screening of that sequence, security guards were walking along the rows and looking at audience members to make sure their phones were not exposed.

I've had some experience with amber (which is basically fossilized sap), though. There's quite a bit of it on the island in Denmark where we've had our summer house for 40 years. So I've picked up a few of those rocks. Not a lot of insects in them, sadly.

I wrote an article about this, haha. ;)

I like the idea of having vicious Raptors back in the film, but I think it's funny how the director makes it sound like something that is new. It's how they used to be in these films! LOL. Before anyone asks, yes, Atrociraptor is a real dinosaur despite its amusing name.

 

I comment how the image looks like something out of a James Bond movie, complete with a closing quip: "Do you think there’s just No Time To Die for Owen in this image, or is it an atrocity?". Yeah. I'm proud of that line. ;)
