Dominion, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, resumed production in July with required safety protocols in place after all activities were put on hold in March.

According to Deadline, more than 40,000 COVID-19 tests were conducted, with 0.25 per cent returning positive: that is around 100 positive results. Some of these were false positives and some were returned prior to employment at Pinewood.

The makers -- Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment -- spent somewhere between USD 6-8 mn on protocols alone.

Lead cast Pratt and Dallas Howard are coming back for the third film in the Jurassic World series. The film will also feature original stars of 1990's Jurassic Park trilogy -- Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neill.

The cast of Dominion includes Doctor Strange star BD Wong, Mamoudou Athie, known for TV series Sorry for Your Loss, and She's Gotta Have It actor DeWanda Wise.

The movie picks up after the events of 2018's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which culminated with dinosaurs descending on Sin City.

Trevorrow has also executive produced the film with Steven Spielberg, the Jurassic Park director.
