Jurassic World: Dominion is certainly one of the more hotly anticipated releases coming this year. The third movie in the World franchise and sixth franchise movie overall is heading to the 2022 movie schedule on June 10. that’s still several weeks away, but as it turns out the cast has already seen the movie in full, and Jeff Goldblum and Bryce Dallas Howard appeared at CinemaCon this year to talk being “infinitely grateful” for the franchise and share their first takes on the film. Oh, and the new movie premiere will be a sweet moment for Jeff Goldblum's family, too.

Ahead of sharing some brand new footage, Jeff Goldblum and Bryce Dallas Howard spoke out a bit about their experiences in the iconic franchise. For Goldblum, going to the movie theater has always been the most “romantic” and “magical” experience for him and he genuinely seems enthusiastic about what Dominion is bringing to the big screen. 

In fact while many of us have already seen the Jurassic World: Dominion trailer, he's already seen the movie, noting:

Let me just say very quickly, going to movie theaters, they’ve been the most romantic and magical times of my life… They showed [Dominion] to us a couple months ago, and it really, I think, is terrific. We are, if it’s of any interest or relevance, going to be going on an extensive publicity tour over the next couple of months, as you can imagine, and we’ll be everywhere that you can think of. But genuinely, I can speak for myself and us, we’re very enthused. We’re crazy about this movie, and we’re going to be coming up and inviting people to come see it in movie theaters.

Although Jeff Goldblum, Bryce Dallas Howard and co. have gotten to see the movie on a big screen already, it sounds like the veteran actor has a plan to go again, this time with his own little ones. His kids are young enough they've never been to the theater before, a fact which was amplified when the world shut down during the pandemic. But all of that's going to change when Universal's next major dino adventure comes out. 

I've got two little boys, Charlie and River, they're seven and five. They have never seen a movie in a movie theater. We've kind of kept them off screens... But I plan to and have already promised them that this is going to be the first movie that we take them to, so I can't wait to have them have this first movie be the movie.

I think a lot of us have early memories of the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park or Jurassic World scaring the bejesus out of us, and if Jeff Goldblum thinks his kids can handle the flick, that's doubtless going to be a lasting memory for them. And for anyone, really, who heads to the theaters to see the movie, which will not only bring back Ian Malcom, but will also reunite the character with Sam Neill's Alan Grant and Laura Dern's Ellie Sattler

Goldblum has previously called the Jurassic World: Dominion reunion "exciting," and he's not the only cast member who has been hyping up what is to come. Sam Neill has also been heavily hyping up returning for Dominion and now that the date is getting closer, anticipation is growing about as tall as a brachiosaurus. June can't come soon enough.
