Watch the Special Prologue to JURASSIC WORLD DOMINATION, Scored by Michael Giacchino
Universal has just released a special prologue to JURASSIC WORLD DOMINATION, which will arrive in theaters on June 10, 2022. The Prologue, a new, five-minute special prologue to the movie directed by DOMINION director and co-writer Colin Trevorrow, is not featured in the film itself but is separate, original content. The Prologue serves as the beginning of a story that will be continued in theaters next summer.
The Prologue rockets audiences back 65 million years into the past to experience the world before humans existed—and offers a glimpse of a world in which dinosaurs are living among us. We see seven new species of dinosaurs that have never been seen in a Jurassic film before, created by the legendary Industrial Light & Magic, which has created visual effects for every Jurassic film, including Jurassic World Dominion.
The Prologue is scored by Oscar® winner Michael Giacchino, composer of JURASSIC WORLD, JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM and JURASSIC WORLD DOMINION.
JURASSIC WORLD DOMINION, from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment, sees the return of director Colin Trevorrow, who also serves as executive producer with Steven Spielberg. Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley also return as producers. Alexandra Derbyshire joins as executive producer. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard star as Owen Grady and Claire Dearing and are joined by Academy Award® winner Laura Dern, Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum, who reprise their roles as Dr. Ellie Sattler, Dr. Alan Grant and Dr. Ian Malcolm. The film also features BD Wong as Dr. Henry Wu, Emmy nominee Mamoudou Athie (OH JEROME, NO), Dichen Lachman (AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.) and DeWanda Wise (SHE’S GOTTA HAVE IT).
Joining the Jurassic team for the first time is Emily Carmichael, who has crafted the Jurassic World Dominion screenplay with Colin Trevorrow. They worked from a story by Derek Connolly and Trevorrow, who together co-wrote JURASSIC WORLD and JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM. Trevorrow directed 2015’s JURASSIC WORLD, which went on to gross $1.7 billion worldwide and is the sixth-highest-grossing film in cinema history. The Jurassic franchise in one of the biggest franchises in the history of cinema. To date, JURASSIC films have earned more than $5 billion at the worldwide box office.
