During a recent interview with Comic Book, Colin Trevorrow described Jurassic World: Dominion as both “emotionally” and “thematically” rich.
It’s unlike any experience I’ve ever had and probably ever will have. I lived with my cast for four months while we made this film and we all got to know each other very, very well. We were able to dig into the film and work on each of these characters in a way that I never would have had the opportunity to do. That kind of constant immersion is not really the way that films are made, where people are all living in their separate places and you see them on set.
“It’s a very emotionally rich and thematically rich movie. It’s got a lot on its mind — because all of us did. And I think it understands each of these characters better than we ever have because each of these actors has been playing them for so long that they’re the ultimate authority on their own character. Much in a way that I did on Safety Not Guaranteed, I really gave all the actors an opportunity to - in a lot of ways - do some writing, to really dig in and find the truth in each of these people. And the product of that is something that I never could have done alone. It’s pretty special.
