Jurassic World: DominionKayla Watts actress DeWanda Wise is unimpressed by the negative reviews of the dino blockbuster.
Reunited for the first time in nearly three decades with Sam Neill’s Alan Grant, Laura Dern’s Ellie Sattler, and Jeff Goldblum’s Ian Malcolm – mingled with the cast of heroes from the sequel trilogy – lordship holds the unwanted record for lowest-rated entry in the Jura- series.
Speak with Insider prior to the extended physical release of the film, Wise thought, “From my perspective, I’ve always been pretty immune to criticism.

“We made a movie during a pandemic. Honestly, you can print this if you want: you can’t tell me shit.
“We were the first production back during a pandemic. We all lived together. The people who received this film with the love with which it was made, that’s what I put my focus on. That’s just who I am by nature. I’m not going where I’m not loved, I don’t care [about the polarised reaction].”
Claire Dearing’s Bryce Dallas Howard was also involved in the interview, highlighting her enthusiasm for director Colin Trevorrow’s additional 14 minutes of digital and disc recordings.
“I’m going crazy, so excited, that the expanded edition is being shared with people,” she said.
“The expanded edition is a restoration of the original version, and it’s the movie we made. It’s got all the narrative connective tissue and character moments and all that that we all built together. I’m just really happy people we’re going see our movie.”

Howard then informed co-star Wise that the critics’ complaints never once related to her character Kayla.
“It’s important to say you’re loved everywhere,” she said. “There’s no question how we all feel about you and what you’ve done in Jurassic World. Full support. One hundred percent of the critics.”
