Universal Pictures has decided to move the film Jurassic World: Dominion to June 10, 2022. That is more than a year later than initially planned, reports Variety . Postponing the blockbuster is next in a growing list of movies being postponed due to the coronavirus.
Jurassic World: Dominion was originally scheduled for the summer of 2021. The filming had to be halted in March due to the corona pandemic.
Production of Jurassic Park: Dominion was one of the first to get back on track since the corona outbreak, in part due to extensive health protocols on set. Sources report to Variety that the recordings of the blockbuster are currently still in progress and will take about three more weeks.
The film is the sixth in the Jurassic Park series. The lead roles are played by Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. They also played the leading roles in the fourth and fifth parts. Actors Laura Dern, Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum can also be seen in Dominion . Colin Trevorrow is the director.
Jurassic Park: Dominion isn’t the first major movie Universal is putting off due to the coronavirus. The studio previously did this with F9: The Fast Saga from the Fast & Furious series.
The last days it was also announced that other major films are being moved to a later date for the time being. For example, Dune , James Bond: No Time To Die and The Batman have been postponed. The release date of Matrix 4 has just been brought forward.
