Universal Pictures has announced that it has postponed the premiere of Jurassic World: Dominion from the summer of 2021 to June 10, 2022. The director of the film, Colin Trevorrow, commented on the news on his Twitter:
For the past three months, I’ve been working with great actors and crew on a film that I really want to share with the world. Even if we have to wait a little longer, it will be worth it. Until then, stay healthy and take care of each other.
Insiders contacted by the journalists of the Variery publication argue that the reason for the postponement is not related to delays in the filming process. The film was one of the first high-budget projects to resume filming after quarantine. About $ 5 million was spent on the implementation of security protocols designed to protect the film crew from the coronavirus. At the moment, filming is still ongoing, but there are about three weeks left until their end.
Thus, the main reason for postponing the premiere for a year can only be the need to restore the work of cinemas. Universal had previously postponed the premiere of Fast and Furious 9 from April 2, 2021, to May 28, 2021.
