“Multiverse of Madness” is one of the newest additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After casting a forbidden spell that opens a portal to the multiverse, Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) gathers his friend Wong (Benedict Wong) and Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen). Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch, was last seen after leaving Westview in the miniseries, “WandaVision.” Even with the help of his team, the threat which emerges from the multiverse may be too big for Strange to handle.

  1. “Jurassic World: Dominion” (Photo by: Universal)

At the end of the last movie, “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” all of the dinosaurs escaped into the world. In a hearing, Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) tells the U.S Senate that humans must learn to coexist with dinosaurs. The sixth film in the Jurassic Park series, “Jurassic World: Dominion,” takes place four years after “Fallen Kingdom.” After four years, dinosaurs have had enough time to spread around the planet. Filmmaker and co-writer Colin Trevorrow said, “They [dinosaurs] have been multiplying and living amongst us and clashing with us.” He says “‘Dominion’ is set all over the world, through many different environments: wilderness, urban, desert and snow. It will be exciting to see these creatures navigate through environments that they weren’t built to survive in. They grew up in a theme park and now they’re here!”
