Thursday, September 10, 2020

Jeff Goldblum opened up about his role in the upcoming movie “Jurassic World: Dominion” and revealed why his portrayal of Dr. Ian Malcolm is still “relevant” today, noting that his character was way ahead of his time.

Speaking in an interview with People, the 67-year-old actor said that his character in the original film series always talked about things like the fragility of our species and the global cooperation that’s needed to use science ethically.

“As it happens, there are things that my character talks about, has always talked about. The fragility of our species and the global cooperation that is needed, and the foundation in science that’s needed, and the ethical use of science that’s needed to unite us in trust and connectedness as a family,” People quoted Goldblum, as saying.

He went on to explain that people need to reach their “true potential” in doing what is right for the planet. He believes that all the aforementioned things are “more relevant” than ever.

“And to reach our potential and do right by ourselves and this glorious planet. All of those things are now more relevant than ever,” Goldblum said during the interview.

The third movie in the franchise will see the stars of the original “Jurassic Park” movies like Goldblum, Sam Neill, and Laura Dern sharing the big screen once again.

Recently, Neill shared a video on his official Twitter account in which he and Goldblum can be seen singing classic songs like “I Remember You” (Frank Field) and “A Fine Romance” (“Swing Time”). The stars are currently filming the movie in the U.K., and they decided to bless the fans with a video on their day off.

Taika Waititi, who has worked with Goldblum in “Thor: Ragnarok,” shared the actor’s tweet and said that this week just keeps on getting “better and better.”  

“This week just gets better and BETTER. Two of my favourite ls right here,” Waititi wrote.

Helmed by Colin Treverrow, “Jurassic World: Dominion” will also see Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard reprising their respective roles of Owen Grady and Claire.

The film is scheduled to hit the theaters on June 11, 2021.
