The second of three ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ x NBC Winter Olympics crossover ads has been released, this time featuring US Olympic Figure Skater Nathan Chen! The first ad featured Olympic Alpine Ski Racer Mikaela Shiffrin, and the third ad will feature US Olympic Snowboarder Shaun White. Watch the newest ad below:
The ad begins as Chen trains for the upcoming Winter Olympics on a frozen lake, high in a snow-covered mountain range. A herd of parasaurolophus stampede through a ravine towards him as Jurassic inspired music begins. It crescendos as the group stops along the bank of the frozen lake, creating a moment of awe before the magnificent creatures. The leader of the herd and Chen lock eyes for a moment before the group bolts away into the snowy distance. The ad ends with a promo card for the Winter Olympics beginning February 3rd on NBC and ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ in theaters June 10th.
This second entry in the ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ x NBC Winter Olympics crossover ad campaign really ups the concept of the first a bit and brings in some beautiful music and dinosaurs to boot. Who knows what the next ad and the culmination of this campaign will bring! What do you think of these ads? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned to Jurassic Outpost for the latest news!
After what feels like 65 million years, the Jurassic World Dominion marketing campaign has officially kicked off in full swing. First making its debut on the TODAY Show, a new advert has roared its way online featuring Velociraptor Blue and a Tyrannosaurus rex alongside Alpine skier Mikaela Shiffrin.
Check it out here:
According to the NBCUniversal Press release ‘Shiffrin is one of three Team USA athletes who will appear in ads merging Winter Olympics competitors and the upcoming film, Jurassic World: Dominion. Snowboarder Shaun White and figure skater Nathan Chen will also each encounter dinosaurs created by the artists at Industrial Light & Magic.’
Per the NBC Universal press release, this campaign will continue throughout the Olympics with the other key dates being January 31st plus February 3rd & 4th:
According to the NBC Universal media event we reported on yesterday, this is all leading to a larger payoff that will occur during Super Bowl LVI on February 13th. While these unique Olympics adverts do not actually include footage from the film itself, it is expected to lead into more traditional film adverts during the NFLs ‘Big Game’ on February 13th.
Jurassic World Dominion is the 6th film in the Jurassic Park franchise, starring Laura Dern, Sam Neill, Bryce Dallas Howard, DeWanda Wise, Jeff Goldblum, Chris Pratt, BD Wong, Cambell Scott, Mamoudou Athie, and many, many more. Dominion will release exclusively in theaters on June 10th, 2022.

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!
Do you think there’s just No Time To Die for Owen in this image, or is it an atrocity? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
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.
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:
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.
What do you think about this parasaurolophus image and its implications for Jurassic World: Dominion? Comment below with your thoughts and stay tuned to Jurassic Outpostfor the latest news!
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.

The ‘Jurassic World Dominion’ Prologue dropped this morning on YouTube, and while it certainly was beautiful, there is no denying YouTubes compression crushed the details. Thankfully, we have the raw ProRes HD file, and have created a gallery for your viewing pleasure.
Hold on to your butts – the first footage from Jurassic World Dominion has hit the internet!
This original 5 min prologue to Jurassic World Dominion, directed by Colin Trevorrow, 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.
The story will continue in theaters this Summer.
Stay tuned for our gallery of pro-res HD screenshots, and our breakdown of the footage coming soon!
After many – too many – months of waiting, the ‘Jurassic World Dominion‘ prologue that premiered in front of IMAX screenings of Fast 9 will make its way to home audiences. This upcoming Tuesday November 23rd the preview of next summers Jurassic Park sequel will debut on NBC at roughly 8:56pm EST, after ‘The Voice‘.
“A preview of the Jurassic World saga revealing the origins of the dino DNA that started it all.”
For those unfamiliar, the prologue opens during the cretaceous period showing dinosaurs before extinction, later cutting to show some brief glimpses into Dominions present day action 65 million years later. While the prologue is not entirely new, this will be the first time it’s been officially been made available outside of IMAX which is something fans have been asking for globally.
This of course may come as a small disappointment to fans who’ve already seen the very preview months ago and would like to finally see Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler, Claire Dearing, Owen Grady and Ian Malcolm in a proper trailer – however it seems than will not come until February of 2022.
If you want to learn more about the upcoming prologue, be sure to check out our breakdown from over the Summer and stay tuned for more coverage once it releases!
