WATCH: A five-minute prologue for Jurassic World: Dominion has been released online

The full movie won’t arrive in cinemas until June 2022.

Picking up from the events of 2018’s Fallen Kingdom, which culminated with a mansion full of dinosaurs being let loose into the wild, it looks like 2022’s Jurassic World: Dominion will be telling the story of how humanity will react to suddenly no longer being at the top of the food chain.

Universal has just released the five-minute prologue of the upcoming sequel, which was originally exclusive screened in IMAX cinemas around the world, in front of viewings of F9 over the summer.

But they’ve finally launched the footage online, which kicks off with some David Attenborough documentary-esque footage of the dinosaurs having the time of their lives 65 million years ago, before jumping to the modern day, with a T-Rex wading into a drive-in cinema.

The modern day setting does immediately call to mind the climax of 1997’s The Lost World: Jurassic Park, as well as one of the highlights of 1996’s Twister, which was written by Michael Crichton, the same guy who wrote the Jurassic Park books that this whole series is based on.

Next year’s movie will feature the combined casts of Park and World, with Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Golblum, Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Pratt, Omar Sy and BD Wong all reprising their roles from across the franchise, while director Colin Trevorrow will return to the series, having previously directed 2015’s Jurassic World.

Jurassic World: Dominion will arrive in Irish cinemas on 10 June 2022.
