This summer, "F9" will be hitting theaters around the world, bringing us back into the universe of Dom Toretto. And, as if that wasn't enough excitement for one movie-going experience, Universal and Amblin Entertainment announced today that beginning June 25, every IMAX® screening of F9 will feature a Special Extended Preview of "Jurassic World: Dominion".
The film stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Academy Award® winner Laura Dern, Sam Neill, and Jeff Goldblum and features an impressive international cast, including Mamoudou Athie, Scott Haze, Dichen Lachman, Daniella Pineda, Campbell Scott, Isabella Sermon, Justice Smith, Omar Sy, DeWanda Wise, and BD Wong.
Co-written and directed by returning filmmaker Colin Trevorrow, it was also executive produced with franchise creator Steven Spielberg. Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley produced.
"Ever since I was a kid, I have wanted to see dinosaurs in their natural habitat," director Colin Trevorrow says. "It may have taken a few decades, but with a little help from ILM, Universal and Amblin, it has finally happened. This Preview is just a glimpse of the film we've made. It's an epic celebration of everything Steven Spielberg and Michael Crichton created, and I can't wait to share it with the world next summer."
The IMAX® exclusive allows fans to see the biggest, boldest chapter in the Jurassic series yet on the biggest screen and in the most thrilling way possible. "As part of our celebration welcoming moviegoers back into theaters this summer, we couldn't think of a more perfect way to say, ‘thank you' to the hundreds of millions of Jurassic and Fast fans around the world," said Jim Orr, President of Domestic Theatrical Distribution for Universal Pictures. "This first look at Jurassic World: Dominion that Colin and his team put together is like nothing you've ever seen before. Even better, there's simply no more perfect place to experience both the Dominion Preview and F9 than on a massive IMAX® screen. This really is the ultimate movie-fan experience."
The five-minute Special Extended Preview of Jurassic World: Dominion, which audiences will be able to experience in full-screen 1:90:1 IMAX® aspect ratio, includes a prologue to the film's narrative and is set 65 million years ago, during the Cretaceous period, when dinosaurs roamed the entire Earth. The breathtaking, action-packed scenes, featuring Oscar® winner Michael Giacchino's iconic score, reveal what Earth looked like long before humans existed and tell the origin story of how dinosaur DNA first came to be carried by a mythic mosquito. The Preview features seven new species of dinosaurs, created by the legendary Industrial Light & Magic, that have never been seen in any Jurassic film before. But the Preview doesn't end there and holds some real trademark Jurassic surprises with dinosaurs later roaming an Earth that is decidedly less theirs alone.
"This sequence was made to be seen on the biggest screen possible. Luckily, IMAX theaters are back, and all over the world we're returning to theaters because movies bring us closer together," Trevorrow says. "I think we need that shared experience right now … maybe more than we ever have."
As fans return to theaters for the release of F9 on June 25, this Special Extended Preview is a reminder of the power and beauty of the big-screen experience and the joy of sharing that experience with other people. "At IMAX, we've missed audiences as much as they've missed seeing movies in our theaters, and this is the perfect welcome-home present for everyone who loves movies," said Megan Colligan, President of IMAX® Entertainment. "We are always thrilled to show the world's most spectacular movies on the world's most spectacular screens, and to help create moments and memories for audiences that last a lifetime. We're proud to join with Universal, Amblin, and the Jurassic World and F9 filmmakers in offering this unforgettable and unprecedented cinematic experience."
