The dinosaurs are back: The film “Jurassic World – A New Age” is coming to German cinemas. Fans can also look forward to stars from the 90s series.

The film “Jurassic World – A New Age” had its German premiere on Monday evening in Cologne.

Among others, Hollywood star Jeff Goldblum (69) had traveled there, who had already played the role of mathematician and chaos theorist Dr. Ian Malcolm was seen. Now he’s returning in that role.

Goldblum reported that the new film was made under difficult circumstances during the corona pandemic. “I’ve been tested a million times.” But the filming would have been great fun, especially meeting up with the old fellow actors. “Fantastic people,” he enthused. “It was something of a high school reunion. Just great.”

New film with old stars

The special appeal for fans of the genre is that the stars of the ’90s “Jurassic Park” series like Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern and Sam Neill meet Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard from the “Jurassic World” generation.

Director Colin Trevorrow told the German Press Agency that there was a significant difference between this and the five previous films: “The first five films all played on an island.” This time the dinosaurs did not live in such a limited space, but would have spread all over the world. They run through streets, crash into cars, snatch catch from fishing trawlers on the high seas and breed on high-rise buildings.

Convincing the audience for two hours of a world “in which both humans and dinosaurs coexist” is a certain challenge, said Trevorrow. The dinosaurs were both digitally designed on the computer and partly built as animatronic dolls.
