JURASSIC WORLD: There Are No Immediate Plans For Another Movie Following DOMINION's Release This Summer

Jurassic World: Dominion arrived in theaters to mixed reviews earlier this summer, though those did little to decrease interest in the threequel. The movie ended up grossing just over $1 billion at the worldwide box office by the end of its run, but with the trilogy now over, there are a lot of questions surrounding where the series goes next.

It doesn't appear as if the core Jurassic Park or Jurassic World actors will be back for another sequel, anyway, and Colin Trevorrow has even expressed interest in potentially taking the franchise down the R-Rated horror route. 

While time will tell on that front, The Wrap (via SFFGazette.com) is reporting that insiders have told them "serious talks on greenlighting another 'Jurassic' film haven’t started yet." That's definitely a somewhat disappointing update, and one which suggests any sort of decision about the future won't be made until well into 2023 (or beyond).

Universal Pictures is a studio with only a handful of massively profitable franchises, though, so we're sure they'll revisit the Jurassic movies sooner rather than later. 

In October, Trevorrow weighed in on Jurassic World: Dominion being marketed as the franchise's final chapter, making it clear he hopes to continue telling stories in this world for years to come.

"I never knew that this was the ending of the franchise until I saw the marketing. Those guys are brilliant at what they do, but for me I think it might have been clearer if they’d said, ‘The end of an era’, as opposed to all of it," he said"Because regardless of the cynical approach – of course they’re gonna want to make more money, which is what Jurassic World was about – a new dinosaur fan is born every day. Kids deserve these movies, and young filmmakers grow up on these stories."

Regardless of whether it's a horror movie, a post-apocalyptic adventure in a world overrun by dinosaurs, or something completely unexpected, we do expect more Jurassic movies to be released. It's a little surprising a TV series hasn't happened, though we're sure Universal would rather focus on those all-important box office receipts for now.

What are your hopes for the franchise moving forward?

Yea, and God had mercy upon his creation. Hallelujah.

Jurassic Park is my all-time favorite movie. Dominion was dogshit.
MCUKnight11 - 11/19/2022, 3:06 PM
Since no one else is going to do dinosaurs, I just hope it gets course corrected like Bumblebee and Prey did for their franchises.

@MCUKnight11 - Id be down for a Prey style Turok movie
CorndogBurglar - 11/19/2022, 4:38 PM
@Ha1frican - You know, Turok is a franchise they are really missing out on.

They made some pretty awesome video games for it back in the day, but that's it. I would totally be down for a movie.
marvel72 - 11/19/2022, 5:11 PM
@MCUKnight11 - They might do X-Men:Savage Land.

@MCUKnight11 - bumblebee was good it wasn’t perfect all fans saw g1 style bots that’s what made them happy still waiting for megatron to show up eventually
WaffeX - 11/19/2022, 9:49 PM
@Ha1frican - I would be down for a r-rated Dino Crisis movie

MosquitoFarmer - 11/20/2022, 7:15 AM
@WaffeX - The most likely scenario is that it would only be made by someone that would totally f*ck it up and miss the point.
MCUKnight11 - 11/19/2022, 3:07 PM
Despite the mixed reception, I hope this keeps going because there are still some species I want to see like Gorgosaurus, tupuxuara, deinonychus, suchomimus, etc.

You know who this franchise needs:

"....The Hierarchy Of Jurassic World is about to change...."

From the Director of his classic hits like, Jungle Cruise or The Building is on Fire or Red "No one" Notice(s)

After the abomination that Dominion was - no thanks.
EZBeast - 11/19/2022, 3:28 PM
Could’ve sworn I just read an article about more jp movies are coming without Collin at the head but regardless I’m okay with this after that god awful dominion…
ThorArms - 11/19/2022, 3:43 PM
Of course there will be more. Give it 7 years
ModHaterSLADE - 11/19/2022, 3:46 PM
Wouldn't be surprised if we got a Transformers crossover the way the last one jumped the shark.

I enjoyed the last few but it’s probably for the best. If they do another one down the line I’d honestly rather they go smaller scale but have it be Dawn of the Apes post apocalyptic with humans trying to survive in the world where Dinos exist. Bring it back to being a monster movie and less of an action based franchise
CorndogBurglar - 11/19/2022, 4:41 PM
@Ha1frican - The way the 2nd one ended I actually thought they might go in that direction for Dominion. The 2nd one ended with all the dinos getting loose into the wild around the world. Then Dominion all but ignored that. It was kind of strange. They should have leaned more heavily into it.

Good. The last two movies were awful.
