The North American premiere of  “Jurassic World: Dominion” has officially concluded in Los Angeles and  first reactions to the dino-centric sequel are pouring in online, with  entertainment writers calling the follow-up everything from a good hit  of nostalgia to downright bad.

The film reunites Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum, who all  starred in Steven Spielberg’s 1993 original. Chris Pratt and Bryce  Dallas Howard return after starring in 2015’s “Jurassic World” and  2018’s “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,”

while series newcomers DeWanda Wise and Mamoudou Athie also join the cast of the new entry.

“Dominion” picks up after the events of “Fallen Kingdom,” with dinosaurs  now roaming the Earth and forcing the human race to closely guard their  position as the apex predators of the planet.

“Jurassic World” director Colin Trevorrow returns to helm the series finale.

Although “Jurassic World: Dominion” doesn’t hit North American theaters  until Friday, Universal has already given the sequel a limited global  rollout in 15 international markets.
