Jurassic World: Dominion: Chris Pratt embarks on a perilous boat excursion in behind-the-scenes snap


A new behind-the-scenes image from the set of Jurassic World: Dominion has been released, featuring star Chris Pratt on a perilous-looking boat ride.

Joining him in the image is Omar Sy, who is reprising his role as velociraptor handler Barry from Jurassic World, and director Colin Trevorrow.

Chris – who returns to the Jurassic Park franchise for the third time as gamekeeper-turned-hero Owen Grady – is seen talking to Colin in the image, with Omar looking on.

The trio seem engrossed in a discussion about the scene, which sees them on a rickety-looking vessel, sailing underneath some arched tunnels.

The boat is named Fair Spanish Lady – seemingly a nod to original Jurassic Park director Steven Spielberg’s classic creature feature Jaws, the movie that put him on the map in 1975.

In Jaws, Captain Quint [played by Robert Shaw] sings the shanty Farewell And Adieu Fair Spanish Ladies while his boat drifts along during a respite from battling the titular great white shark.

Trevorrow appears to have named the Jurassic World: Dominion boat as a nod to this moment, paying homage to Spielberg – who is executive producing this sixth instalment in the dinosaur franchise.

Spielberg helmed 1993’s Jurassic Park and the 1997 follow-up, The Lost World. From Jurassic Park III [2001] onwards, he has acted as executive producer for the film series, which took a 15-year hiatus and was rebooted in 2015 by Trevorrow with Jurassic World.

2018’s Fallen Kingdom followed – directed by J. A. Bayona – which saw the action move from the tropical Isla Nublar setting onto mainland America, which is where Dominion – set for a June 2022 release – will pick things up.

The film will bring back legacy cast members Laura Dern, Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum, as well as the likes of Sy, Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and BD Wong, to deal with the flock of dinosaurs that were released on the mainland at the end of Fallen Kingdom.

Dominion hit major snags, thanks to the COVID-19 crisis – with Trevorrow detailing this in depth in a new interview with Empire.

Talking to the film publication, the director explains that he was mid-way through shooting a scene on location in the UK when he was told production would be shutting down for lockdown – with no indication on when things could resume.

This took place in early 2020, with cast and crew sent home for three months. The movie was the first major production to resume filming in July 2020.

‘The scariest moment was [in late October] when we just had a couple of weeks left and the cases were rising exponentially,’ Trevorrow recalls of the moment the film nearly shut down for a second time.

‘Because we had the crew that we did and the actors were always on set, we were able to accelerate what we were doing. But we definitely had a fear that we might have a movie that was nine-tenths finished and remain that way.’

The virus-proof set cost between $6-8 million, and filming wrapped in November.

The film – which is set to be the last of the Jurassic World reboot trilogy but not necessarily the final film in the franchise – was initially intended for a summer 2021 release, but is now scheduled to hit cinemas on June 10, 2022.
