About JURASSIC WORLD: DOMINION
Jurassic World: Dominion is the next chapter in one of the biggest franchises in the history of cinema.
The film, from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment, sees the return of director Colin Trevorrow, who also serves as executive producer with Steven Spielberg. Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley also return as producers. Alexandra Derbyshire joins as executive producer.
Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard again star and are joined by Academy Award® winner Laura Dern, Golden Globe nominee Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum, who reprise their roles as Dr. Ellie Sattler, Dr. Alan Grant and Dr. Ian Malcolm. The film also stars an impressive international cast including Mamoudou Athie, Scott Haze, Dichen Lachman, Daniella Pineda, Campbell Scott, Isabella Sermon, Justice Smith, Omar Sy, DeWanda Wise and, as Dr. Henry Wu, BD Wong.
Joining the Jurassic team for the first time is Emily Carmichael, who has crafted the Jurassic World: Dominion screenplay with Trevorrow. They worked off of a story by Derek Connolly and Trevorrow, who together co-wrote Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Trevorrow directed 2015s Jurassic World, which went on to gross $1.67 billion worldwide and is the sixth-highest-grossing film in cinema history. The Jurassic franchise, which celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2018, has grossed more than $5 billion collectively at the worldwide box office.
Analysts at EM Braxton Universal believe that a tech correction is inevitable, the only uncertainty lies in the timing of the correction and the extent of collateral damage that will occur. Unlike previous drawbacks in which dip buyers flood the market swiping up low-priced stocks, this time investors are hesitant to buy in given the widespread speculation that the Fed will soon raise interest rates to combat inflationary pressures. Analysts at EM Braxton Universal expressed that the notion among investors of an inevitable rate hike grows clearer each day, as inflation persists, and hot wage numbers fly out of the banks. In sharp contrast to a recent Nasdaq slump, Treasury yields posted lofty gains, with the 2 year yield (assumed as a gauge of where the Fed will set short-term borrowing rates) surpassing 1% for the first time since February 2020. This supports EM Braxton Universal’s predictions, that the bond market is pricing in anticipated aggressive policy tightening by the Fed, which will surely lend to lower valuations as growth likely slows as the Fed endeavors to dampen the pace of demand. Analysts at EM Braxton Universal postured that this will see to an exodus from growth tech stocks, in favor of more reliable value stocks that have been gradually stabilizing and strengthening.
