EMPIRE Reveals New ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ Atrociraptor Image & Details!

EMPIRE magazine has the scoop with a new image from ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’!

Director Colin Trevorrow describes the image for us:

“It’s a sequence set in Malta. And the picture speaks for itself – it’s Chris Pratt being chased by an Atrociraptor. And if they catch up, he’s gonna die, I can tell you that.”

With Pratt riding a motorcycle down a weathered stone staircase somewhere in Malta (never a good idea), the image resembles a James Bond movie more than ‘Jurassic Park’. This is now our second real look at dinosaurs in an urban environment for the film (after seeing the Tyrannosaurus Rex at the Drive-In, although that sequence may not even appear in the film itself). The dinosaur in this photo is a newcomer to the series: Atrociraptor.

Trevorrow explains what makes the Atrociraptor different from a Velociraptor:

Where the Velociraptor is a little bit more of a stealth hunter, the Atrociraptors are a bit more brutish. […] These things will just come at you. And in this particular case, they’ve picked his scent, and they’re not going to stop until he’s dead. They’re pretty brutal. They’re pretty vicious.”

It’s interesting that he sees these details as the differences. Since ‘Jurassic Park 3’, the Velociraptors of the franchise have changed into more intelligent and stealth hunters compared to the brutish, murderous qualities we saw in ‘Jurassic Park’ and ‘The Lost World’. It sounds like the Atrociraptors are a return to form of the early qualities of the Raptors more than something truly new.

Still, it is exciting to have any new form of dinosaur in the series. The article confirms there will be even more, such as Pyroraptors and Moros intrepidus.

According to EMPIRE, there will be even more revealed about ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ when their December 23rd issue hits, so stay tuned to Jurassic Outpost for any future details!

Colin Trevorrow Shares New ‘JURASSIC WORLD: DOMINION’ Parasaurolophus Image!

After an image of Owen and a parasaurolophus in the Sierra Nevadas was revealed earlier this week, Jurassic World: Dominion director Colin Trevorrow took to social media to reveal another new image of the species from his time shooting the film.

“What species is this?”

This parasaur seems to be in the same snowy environment as the image with Owen. Interestingly, both the Owen image and this new image feature re-designs in relation to past parasaurs in the Jurassic franchise. In response to a little speculation and confusion about the species, Trevorrow clarified:

“The pompadour! Elvis!”

As far as the re-design is concerned, it could find its explanation in these dinosaurs being made by a company other than InGen (BioSyn, perhaps?). Trevorrow laid some of the groundwork for this type of plot explanation in an interview with Jurassic Outpost shortly after Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom‘s release, which you can read here. While the image from earlier this week is CG, this latest parasaurolophus is a maquette used for visual reference during production on Dominion – and we have to say, it is beautiful.

New ‘JURASSIC WORLD: DOMINION’ Image And Details Revealed!

Entertainment Weekly has revealed a new image and some interesting plot information in the Jurassic World: Dominion exclusive from its 2022 Preview, on newsstands this Friday.

The featured image finds Chris Pratt’s Owen Grady “rounding up parasaurs in the Sierra Nevadas,” according to director Colin Trevorrow. This parasaur sports a completely new design, different from any past entry in the Jurassic franchise. Trevorrow continued:

“He’s not too far from where the dinosaurs got out in the last film. The parasaurs are in danger of being poached. There’s a lot of shady types out there who want to get their hands on dinosaurs, so he’s working to protect them.”

Trevorrow went on to elaborate on a couple of plot elements from Dominion, saying:

“They [the dinosaurs] have been multiplying and living amongst us and clashing with us … Dominion is set all over the world, through many different environments: wilderness, urban, desert, snow. It’s exciting to see these creatures navigate environments that they weren’t built to survive in. They grew up in a theme park and now they’re here!”

According to the article, Dominion takes place four years after 2018’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom – enough time for dinosaurs to have found a way to spread around the globe. Owen and Bryce Dallas Howard’s Claire are still attempting to save the dinosaurs when the film starts. When asked where exactly Claire is, Trevorrow responded:

“I don’t want to say just yet … But she’s at a point where she’s questioning her methods, and whether she can stay safe and fulfill the responsibility that she has to the other people in her life that care about her.”

Equally intriguing is what Trevorrow had to say about Campbell Scott’s Lewis Dodgson:

“He is the main villain throughout both of [Crichton’s] novels, and I think what Campbell’s done with the character is just amazing. I can’t wait for people to see it.”

That’s a strong hint that Dodgson will play a big role in Dominion.

The new image and story details revealed in this Entertainment Weekly exclusive are very exciting. You can read their full article here.
