Cinema: The dinosaurs are back: New “Jurassic World” film celebrates its premiere in Cologne


    The film “Jurassic World – A New Age” is coming to German cinemas. It’s not just the dinosaurs that are back on screen. Fans can also look forward to stars from the 1990s series.

    The film “Jurassic World – A New Age” had its German premiere on Monday evening in Cologne. Hollywood star Jeff Goldblum, who had already traveled in the first “Jurassic Park” film from 1993 as the mathematician and chaos theorist Dr. Ian Malcolm was seen. Now the 69-year-old returns in this 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 gushed. “It was something of a high school reunion. Just great.”

    “Jurassic World”: New film with old stars

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

    Director Colin Trevorrow told the German Press Agency that there was a key 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 of a world “in which both humans and dinosaurs coexist” for two hours is a certain challenge, Trevorrow said. The dinosaurs were both digitally designed on the computer and partly built as animatronic dolls.
