‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ Draws Mixed First Reactions, From ‘Roaring Fun’

The North American premiere of “Jurassic World: Dominion” has officially

concluded in Los Angeles and first reactions to the dino-centric sequel are pouring in online,

with entertainment writers calling the follow-up everything from a good hit of nostalgia to downright bad.

As with most sequels in the “Jurassic” series, “Dominion” is being met with a mixed response.

Universal has positioned “Dominion” as a finale for the franchise, organizing a round-up of “Jurassic” stars old and new.

The film reunites Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum, who all starred in Steven Spielberg’s 1993 original.

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return after starring in 2015’s “Jurassic World”

and 2018’s “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” while series newcomers DeWanda Wise

and Mamoudou Athie also join the cast of the new entry.
