'Jurassic World: Dominion' to Resume Production at UK Pinewood Studios by Early July

  'Jurassic World: Dominion' to Resume Production at UK Pinewood Studios by Early July "Jurassic World: Dominion," the third film in the new "Jurassic Park" franchise of films from Universal and starring Chris Pratt, will resume production at the UK's Pinewood Studios on July 6, an individual with knowledge told TheWrap. Beginning next week, two weeks of pre-production will begin on the film, and everyone involved will be tested before returning to set and tested multiple times during filming. The stars of the film, including Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, will return to the UK soon and will be quarantined for two weeks before getting to work, which is mandated by the government for people traveling from the U.S.

Who wouldn’t want a dinosaur in their living room? If you search for one of ten species on Google, you can tap “View in 3D” on your mobile device to open up an augmented reality version of the beasts and have them superimposed -- at scale -- in your surroundings. Google partnered with the companies and studios behind Jurassic World to create this new feature. The models are pretty detailed, too -- you can zoom in to see different textures and other physiological characteristics. Google says that the AR dinosaurs are some of the most realistic renderings to date.

You’ll be able to bring some of the more well-known dinosaurs into your home or yard, including Velociraptor, Triceratops and, of course, Tyrannosaurus Rex. Ludia -- the developer that created the Jurassic World Alive game -- says that its team of artists thoroughly researched each species and consulted with paleontologists and the Jurassic World team to create the models.

While this is a movie tie-in, it’s good to see Google turning it into an educational one. Knowledge of dinosaurs tends to be inversely proportional to one’s age, so this should be entertaining and enlightening for both kids and adults.
