God creates dinosaurs. God destroys dinosaurs. God creates man. Man creates epic dinosaur movies. Dinosaurs rule the box office. 29 years after Jurassic Park stomped onto the big screen, the dino-clone adventures are about to continue with sixth entry Jurassic World Dominion – bringing the continued adventures of Chris Pratt’s Owen Grady and Bryce Dallas Howard’s Claire Dearing, and teaming them up with iconic returning characters Alan Grant (Sam Neill), Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) and Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern). It’s going to be this summer’s ultimate event movie – and the latest issue of Empire is a giant world-exclusive, going on set with the dinosaurs and human cast to get the inside story.
