The dinosaurs are back in the finale of “Jurassic World” | Movies News
LONDON: Casts old and new return for more dinosaur misadventures in ‘Jurassic World Dominion’, in a latest outing concluding the popular franchise’s second film trilogy. The film is set four years after the destruction of the remote island of Isla Nubar, and dinosaurs roam the world, living and hunting among humans.
‘Jurassic Park’ actors Laura Dern and Sam Neill reprise their roles as paleobotanist Dr Ellie Sattler, now soil and climate change scientist, and paleontologist Dr Alan Grant, reuniting with 1993 film costar Jeff Goldblum, who plays the mathematician Dr. Ian Malcolm.
The film sees them join forces with Chris Pratt’s animal behaviorist Owen Grady and Bryce Dallas Howard’s activist Claire Dearing, who helmed the most recent “Jurassic World” film trilogy.
“Both of them (Dern and Neill are) great friends…and they changed my life to have known them for all those 30 years…We were in a movie that caught people’s attention and made them entertained,” Goldblum, who featured in 2018’s “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” told Reuters at a press event in London for the film on Friday.
“And now, for the first time, being reunited on screen and having the chance to work together under these interesting circumstances with this new cast…what a parade and a cobb salad of lucky castmates for me.”
The film, which begins its worldwide theatrical rollout on June 1, features plenty of stunning visual effects showing the dinosaurs living alongside humans. Soon, threats arise.
“What I’m so grateful for and why I felt privileged to return as Dr. Ellie Sattler is that he has a deep-rooted environmental message as the entire franchise does, because at the end of the day, he it’s about corporate greed and previous extinction,” Dern said.
Howard, whose character was the former operations manager of the now closed dinosaur park in the first “Jurassic World” film, said the conclusion to the trilogy that began in 2015 was emotional. “I cried so much,” she said.
“There were some of the actors on my flight home, and they messaged everyone saying, ‘Bryce cried the whole 10 hours at home. I’m like, ‘I know’.”
