Humans and Dinosaurs Are Doing a Very Bad Job of Coexisting in the Jurassic World Dominion Trailer

With its first trailer, Jurassic World Dominion gives us a good look at returning Jurassic Park stars Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, and Sam Neill, who—Sam Neill promises!—have considerable roles in the final movie (or is it?) in the Jurassic World trilogy.

Of course, Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and their dinosaur pals are back, too. And life—very big, very hungry life—has found all kinds of ways, all over the planet.

The end of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom saw Isla Nubar destroyed, and dinosaurs set loose on the world. Coexistence is, unsurprisingly, not going that well. The summary says:

Dominion takes place four years after Isla Nublar has been destroyed. Dinosaurs now live—and hunt—alongside humans all over the world. This fragile balance will reshape the future and determine, once and for all, whether human beings are to remain the apex predators on a planet they now share with history’s most fearsome creatures.

Somehow I don’t think this is going to be a movie in which dinosaurs snack on humans until the end of humanity, but maybe it should be?

Along with Howard, Pratt, and the original Jurassic Park trio, returning cast includes BD Wong (as Dr. Henry Wu), Justice Smith (as Franklin Webb), Daniella Pineda (as Dr. Zia Rodriguez) and Omar Sy (as Barry Sembenè). New dinosaur fodder cast members include the always excellent and perpetually underused Dichen Lachman (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), DeWanda Wise (She’s Gotta Have It), Mamoudou Athie (Archive 81), Scott Haze (Antlers), and Campbell Scott (Singles) as Dodgson.

After leaving Fallen Kingdom in the hands of J.A. Bayona, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow returned for Dominion, which he co-wrote with Emily Carmichael (Pacific Rim: Uprising).

Jurassic World Dominion roars into theaters June 10th.
