Jurassic World: Dominion has found itself with a new 2022 release date.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal Studios and Amblin Entertainment have pushed the release date for the next installment of their Jurassic Park franchise from summer 2021 to summer 2022.
Jurassic World: Dominion was originally slated to debut in theaters on June 11, 2021. However, the film’s official handles took to social media on Tuesday (October 8) to announce that the film would now be hitting theaters a year later than expected.
The franchise paired the announcement with a brand new poster for the movie which features its newly slated release date of June 10, 2022.

The film originally started filming earlier this year in February before they found themselves having to hit the breaks due to growing concerns about the spread of COVID-19. Dominion picked back up on the production front toward the end of the summer and is said to be about three weeks from finishing up on principle production.
Helmed once more by director Colin Trevorrow, Jurassic World: Dominion features returning stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, who will be joined by original Jurassic Park stars Laura Dern, Sam Neill, and Jeff Goldblum.
Dominion is but the latest highly anticipated blockbuster to have its release date pushed back. Just yesterday, it was announced that the sci-fi drama, Dune, would be delayed to October of next year. Meanwhile, MGM announced last week that they’ve officially opted to push the release of the 25th James Bond film, No Time To Die to April 2021.
