The third entry in the Jurassic World series, already hit by a shutdown delay, is the latest movie to be postponed by a full year.
Major delays continue to dominate the distribution landscape following yesterday’s spate of delays announced by Warner Bros (which affected the likes of The Batman and Dune). Now, Universal has confirmed that its major summer tentpole release for next year, Jurassic World: Dominion, has been delayed by a full year to June 2022.
The film’s production was suspended during the UK lockdown, but has since resumed and is thought to be nearing completion.
However, despite running smoothly since restarting (as opposed to say, The Batman, also shooting in the UK, which had to be suspended again because of a positive Covid-19 test) the delay of a full year has been announced, according to The Wrap. This gives the production’s sizeable post-production process plenty of time, whilst also presumably avoiding what could be a summer cluttered with blockbuster releases next year.
Dominion is the third entry in the Jurassic World series and will see three of the core players from the original film – Laura Dern, Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum – unite with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. The ending of the previous film set up this one, and it’s a shame we’re going to have to wait even longer to find out what happens. More news on further delays as we have it.
