Jurassic World: Dominion Introduces “Brutal” New Raptor

The hype continues to grow for the release of Jurassic World: Dominion.

One of the most anticipated releases of 2022, Dominion has already given fans a glimpse of numerous new species debuting in the film. Giganotosaurus, Therizinosaurus, Nasutoceratops, Quetzalcoatlus, and Moros Intrepidus are just a number of new dinos we’ve already seen and the reveals keep coming.

During an interview with Empire Magazine, director Colin Trevorrow revealed a brand new image from Dominion which features Chris Pratt being chased by the “brutal” and “vicious” Atrociraptor.

“It’s a sequence set in Malta and the picture speaks for itself – it’s Chris Pratt being chased by an Atrociraptor. And if they catch up, he’s gonna die, I can tell you that.”

Trevorrow would then add more on the new species, explaining the differences between Atrociraptor and the infamous Velociraptor.

“Where the Velociraptor is a little bit more of a stealth hunter, the Atrociraptors are a bit more brutish. These things will just come at you. And in this particular case, they’ve picked his scent, and they’re not going to stop until he’s dead. They’re pretty brutal. They’re pretty vicious.”

Little else is known about the scene, but the interview looks to have confirmed the sequence will actually take place in Malta, rather than just being filmed there. Previous images from filming in Malta have hinted that both Pratt’s Owen Grady and Bryce Dallas Howard’s Claire Dearing will find themselves in trouble. Atrociraptor might not have been one of the names on InGen’s list, so it is possible that the events taking place here might involve the infamous Biosyn organization.

A real-life specimen of Atrociraptor was discovered in 1995 in the Horseshoe Canyon Formation in Canada. It certainly sounds and looks like a formidable foe. At around two meters long, the Atrociraptor packs quite a punch.

But wait, that’s not all!

The film will also introduce Pyroraptors among a “swathe” of other new species. And Trevorrow has his favorites.

 “I love the Pyroraptors. I love the Atrociraptors. There’s a little one called the Moros intrepidus, who doesn’t do a ton in the movie, but whenever it shows up, I always love it.”

Jurassic World: Dominion debuts in theaters on June 10, 2022, and will reportedly conclude both Jurassic Park and Jurassic World trilogies.
