Colin Trevorrow: Jurassic World: Dominion director of the extended cut

Jurassic World: Dominion is the third and final installment in Jurassic World trilogy, and it has been one global blockbuster, earning very close to a billion dollars worldwide. Now that it’s hitting home video via VOD, streaming and Blu-ray, director Colin Trevorrow has opted to release an extended version of the film that runs fourteen minutes longer. The original film was trimmed to just under two and a half hours for cinemas, but Trevorrow said while being interviewed by our man Lance Vlcek, who is in Malta on a press trip for the home media release, that it didn’t take much convincing to get this longer cut out. You can watch this clip here:

It wasn’t like we had to go out and work anymore, we had the film. So I just asked, ‘look, can we just release this movie after it’s in theaters?’ It is a period of two months. When I think back, even movies like The Dark Knight only existed in theaters for three months, but its life has been all the ways we watch movies ever since. So I knew that once this movie comes home, it’s the movie we’re all going to see.

The extended cut includes an alternate opening, believed to be the prologue that played in theaters last summer before Fast & Furious 9. Trevorrow previously told The packaging it was his intended opening for the film, but it had to be cut:

“[It was] perhaps too Malick-ian for a big summer movie. That was the beginning of the film, it’s the first five minutes of the film and something I’m very proud of.”

The film is now 160 minutes long and will hit VOD, Blu-ray and 4K August 16.
