With production recently restarting for Jurassic World: Dominion, a lot of people thought that it would be making its 2021 release date. Too bad though, because it looks like the film is going the way of several blockbusters and is now set to come out in 2022.
According to Variety, Jurassic World: Dominion has now been pushed from its June 2021 release date, and will release on June 10, 2022. Though this must be a huge bummer to Jurassic fans, director Colin Trevorrow did share a teaser poster for the film on Twitter along with a message about the delay:
For the past three months, I’ve worked with an extraordinary cast and crew on a film we can’t wait to share with the world. Even though we'll have to wait a bit longer, it will all be worth it. Let’s stay healthy and take care of each other until then. pic.twitter.com/vnGzhHs4nR

It’s actually a pretty neat callback to the original film, with the logo looking to be encased in amber. No doubt we’re going to get a poster which features all of the principal actors, but this one is a nice ode to what’s come before it.
Though Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was not the most critically-acclaimed movie when it came out, I really appreciate how it sets up the world of Dominion. While every Jurassic film basically has people stuck in an island full on dinosaurs, we are now seeing a kind of dino-apocalypse where the dinosaurs have been released from the park, and the humans have to find a way to survive a new world where dinosaurs are now roaming free.
It’s actually a pretty interesting premise and puts an entirely different meaning on “Jurassic World.” While the past films haven’t been perfect, hopefully Trevorrow will find a way to end this film in spectacular fashion.
Jurassic World: Dominion is set to come out on June 10, 2022.
