Everyone’s favourite yellow pill-shaped creatures are back! Picking up where 2015’s Minions prequel left off, this fifth film in the Despicable Me franchise finds us in the 1970s, with 12-year-old budding supervillain Gru (Steve Carrell) growing up in the suburbs with the aid of his loyal Minions, hatching a plan to join the infamous supervillain group known the Vicious Six.

After the firing of leader Wild Knuckles (Alan Arkin) leads to an opening in the group, Gru jumps at a chance to interview for a position – which does not go well, to put it mildly. Chaos ensues with the stealing of a precious gem, resulting in Gru and the Minions going on the run from the Vicious Six.

Taraji P. Henson, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Lucy Lawless, Dolph Lundgren and Danny Trejo round out the voice cast of the villainous Vicious Six.

The “world” in “Jurassic World” now takes on a new meaning. Following the events of the last film, Isla Nublar has been destroyed, and its inhabitants freed and unleashed upon the planet. What’s more, the dinosaurs’ genomes have been made open source, and the technology for cloning them is now ubiquitous. They’re still not exactly common (any more than wolves or bears are common), but as the story opens, you might encounter a dinosaur anywhere on Earth. Humans are still in control, of course – but for how long?

Jurassic World: Dominion is intended to round off both the recent Jurassic World trilogy and the six-part Jurassic series as a whole, making for an epic conclusion to a series 65 million and 30 years in the making. Fittingly, the key stars of the original (Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum) make a return in this one.
