Director Thinks Franchise Will Have New Movies After ‘Domain’
Although ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ received only 31% approval from critics, the sequel which closes the trilogy started in 2015 is a great success with the public. On Cinemascore, the film earned an A- rating, the second highest on the platform.
Although the film is being sold as the end of the saga, director Colin Trevorrow revealed to ScreenRant that “Domain is the end of the story that [ele] meant”, but that he does not consider the film to be the last of the franchise.
He revealed that it was possible for a young filmmaker to find a new plot in the story universe that the “Jurassic World” trilogy assembled and go from there.
“I know this is the end of the story I wanted to tell, but I feel like I had the opportunity to step in and put my mark on it and be its custodian. And I feel like there has to be a young filmmaker out there who looks at the world that we’ve created and feels like he knows where he can go from there, so I’m interested in what they have to say in another film in the Jurassic World franchise.
Watch our review:
The film grossed $18 million when it premiered in the United States, surpassing the numbers achieved by “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” ($15.3 million) in 2018.
Even so, the amount is less than the $18.5 million raised when “Jurassic World” premiered in 2015.
According to Variety, “Domain” is expected to debut with $125 million in its first weekend at the North American box office.
It’s worth noting that the sequel has already grossed $55.5 million internationally, across 15 markets, on its planned debut. The new film broke records in Latin America, becoming the franchise’s biggest opening in Mexico, Argentina, Central America, Peru, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador and Uruguay.
In Mexico, “Domain” opened to $18.1 million, marking Universal Pictures’ BIGGEST opening in the country. The numbers were also up almost 50% from the release of previous films in the franchise.
The plot takes place four years after the destruction of Isla Nublar. Dinosaurs now live and hunt alongside humans all over the world. This delicate balance will reshape the future and determine, once and for all, whether humans will remain the primary predators on a planet they now share with history’s most fearsome creatures.
