everyone was in the same hotel it wasxt eorradinary it reminded me of early on in my career, these independent movies, like the movie that got me to hollywood, got paid 700 bucks, all stayed in the same hotel room there's a summer camp vibe you build relationships that you think are going to last forever and it feels kind of amazing and oftentimes in these bigger budget movies you lose sense of that magic because everyone has their own trailer, they flying in, you may not see them until they're standing on their mark that was not the case with this film shooting in covid with protocols in place, we were able to hang out every night, have every meal together. >> that's a cool way to close it. >> it was a blessing in the difficulty everyone faced the last couple of years. >> we're thankful to have you here and congratulations on all the success in your life "jurassic world dominion" hits theatres june 10th
