in front of Jurassic World Dominion The Extended Edition release, Tudor Leonte, senior editor for ComingSoon, spoke with Bryce Dallas Howard and DeWanda Wise about their roles in the film.

Tudor Leonte: Bryce, Jurassic World Dominion Extended Edition shows off even more footage of Claire’s exciting rooftop chase with the Raptor. How was it for you shooting that scene?

Bryce Dallas Howard: Oh God. Well, releasing the extended version here in Malta is pretty amazing because the majority of the movie takes place in Malta, and there’s this incredible sequence in which both us and Chris are being chased around town. It’s great to see all those extra moments, but it’s especially worthwhile that the scenes from the original film have been restored. By the time you’re in Malta, you feel more intense, and you feel the stakes because we’ve seen the beginning of the film. It was a really, really, really exciting sequence which can now be seen being a part of the extended version, as it looks even more exciting and thrilling.

I qualify this as a bad moment, and speaking of bad moments, Devanda, your character, Kayla, has a lot of them. I want to hear your favorite moment from the movie.

Devanda Wise: That was all about it. I think I show up on set sometimes, and there’s film that’s on the page, and then you’re in production, and it seems like a lot of versions of the movie happen. And Colin just kept adding moments, man. He just kept adding to these moments. The one that cracks me, ‘Cause it still cracks me, is this moment where all our heroes together, they just escaped, uh, Giganotosaurus, maybe. Yes. Like they feel like they just ran…

howard: Like the second time.

behaviour: They think they survived it. It’s like the whole team press, you know? You just watch Kayla grab this huge, very heavy tranquilizer gun from the wall and pull it up with one hand. He was all Colin Trevorrow. He said, ‘Okay, Devanda, here’s what we’re going to do.’ I was like, ‘Is this where we go?’

howard: He’s like, ‘Get ready for the hero moment.’

behaviour: So that someone would reprimand me ’cause it’s one of those things where when I was watching in the theater, it was just creeping.

howard: It’s amazing, and I am happy every time I see it. You’re so relaxed, and you grab it, and you turn and…

behaviourPratt: It was like, ‘Slow is fast. Slow is fast. You have to watch all its motions. Then, you just see that thing moving around, and then they see you, and then they see that, and it’s just like, ugh! I like that sequence.

Now that you mentioned the cast reunion for that scene, Jurassic World Dominion also saw the return of some of the original Jurassic Park characters. Would you be interested in reprising your characters in the future in the same way as the heroes of the first one?

howard: Yes. It’s such a special thing, and it’s so rare for an actor to experience that, revisiting a character over and over again. Besides, it’s like the middle of the decades…

behaviour: And to really think like, ‘What, what happened?’ It’s one thing to build up a character’s backstory and it’s more to be like being created first and then building up like, ‘Oh well, what happened after that?’ Because we all owned that, you know? If you talk to Laura Dern about Ellie Sattler and what happened, between that space [Jurassic Park and Jurassic World Dominion], it’s just amazing. it is really good.
