Jurassic World: Dominion hits the big screen today as the epic franchise’s second trilogy reaches its conclusion.
The third film in the Jurassic World series sees Chris Pratt as ethologist Owen Grady and Bryce Dallas Howard as former park manager Claire Dearing as they find themselves in a world where dinosaurs live and hunt alongside humans around the world.
There’s an added twist this time as Jurassic Park’s original characters Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern), Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) are all back for the ride.
Of course, that means it’s probably worth re-watching the classic trilogy to remind yourself of what went down – or watch them for the first time if you’ve somehow not had that joy yet.
With Dominion only just being released on June 10, you could spend all weekend binging the films ready to see the new blockbuster next week.
Here’s how you can do just that.
How many Jurassic Park movies are there?
In total, there are three Jurassic Park films in the classic trilogy – the original 1993 film, its 1997 sequel The Lost World, and 2001’s Jurassic Park III.
Then, you’ve got the Jurassic World series, which started with director Colin Trevorrow’s 2015 movie and continued three years later with Fallen Kingdom.
J. A. Bayona was at the helm for that one, but Trevorrow is back in the hot seat for Dominion as the trilogy comes an end.
Helpfully, you can get the five films all in one place – and you’ve got some options.
See, no excuses!
What is Jurassic World: Dominion about?
Jurassic World: Dominion is the final instalment in the franchise, and catches up with the characters four years after the destruction of Isla Nublar, when dinosaurs now live and hunt alongside humans.
But, as always, not everything is quite that simple.
