Here we are. Another Jurassic World: Dominion trailer. We had the brief little preview poster to Twitter, and then we had the first trailer in February. Yesterday we got a second (and probably final?) trailer for the conclusion of this Chris Pratt led trilogy.

(Also Chris Pratt is in some sort of controversy and I do not know why? I do not want to look it up.)

The start of this trailer is Blue…and his child (which is impossible) finding Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) and Maisie Lockwood (Isabella Sermon) in the woods. Immediately, right off the bat, I am upset that Maisie is getting more face time this trailer. They are going to need to do major rehab work to get me to care about that character at all. And then she says…“You Look Just Like Your Mother.” UGHHH. Just as cheesy as Fallen Kingdom.

Hey! We know the catalyst of the movie! Blue’s child is captured. What we have here is Jurassic Park: The Lost World (1997) but set not on an island. And if you want to lose me in a trailer…it is having a character speaking sincerely to a creature, or dinosaur, and promise to get their child back. I am NOT optimistic about the plot of this movie.

There is about 15 straight seconds of various characters speaking doom into the world. There are admittance of big mistakes and extinction level events. Within this little montage we get Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) looking scared, Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) eulogizing and Dr. Henry Wu (BD Wong) reflecting. Then we have this snapshot here…

My hands are raised guys! Don’t hurt me!

What is Owen going to do here doing his raptor “don’t hurt me” hand gestures? These things are BIT BIGGER THAN RAPTORS, OWEN! Is he going to become telepathic with the dinosaurs now?

We have the scene in Greece or somewhere where Raptors are chasing everyone and I will admit that it is a cool move by Claire with the metal pipe and the raptor flipping. A little silly, but that is what I like. I also do like that we actually see someone get bitten.

Sam Neil appears as his dashing Alan Grant with his glorious facial hair.

Good Looking Dude.

It would appear that we are traversing over many different landscapes. We have the woods in the beginning, the streets of some European city, icy snow caps, sea monsters arial attacks. There is a little bit over everything.

Thank you Malcolm for calling Owen out on his ridiculousness of making a promise to a dinosaur. Also in that moment during the trailer, Own has the raptor strapped to him. Safe to say the rescuing of this animal child is only the catalyst and not the main plot point.

Malcolm gets to wield fire to distract a big monster again, calling back to the 1993 original.

We get big ass monsters closing out this trailer, flying in the sky, swimming under ice, sneaking through brush. It is all chaos, and only this rag tag group of heroes is going to save the balance of the world.

I am curious what the reveal is going to be like with Alan Grant describing this beast as the largest carnivore the world has ever seen. That has to be a slow-motion, low angled camera shot panning up to the dinosaur rising from a crouched position while sniffing the air for the humans before him. And just as he gets closer and danger looms, Owen and Grant are going to say “Don’t move.”

Jurassic World: Dominion is in theaters on June 10, 2022.
