Malta Invites Tourists to Locations of Jurassic World 3: Dominion
Hollywood Blockbuster Jurassic World 3: Dominion due for release this week, sees dinosaurs take over Malta, roaming the capital’s historic streets of Valletta.
The new instalment of the Jurassic World trilogy was filmed in Malta, supported by the Malta Film Commission and Malta Tourism Authority.
The star-studded cast sees familiar favourites Jeff Goldblum, Sam Neil and Laura Dern from the original 1993 Jurassic Park movies, alongside Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard from the Jurassic World series.
Located in the sparkling Mediterranean Sea, South of Sicily Italy, the Maltese islands – Malta, Gozo and Comino have been the location for many iconic Hollywood blockbusters such as Gladiator, Troy, World War Z and most recently on the small screen, Game of Thrones.
With over 7,000 years of history, beautiful unspoilt coastlines, historical architecture and some of the world’s oldest free-standing temples, the streets of Malta was the perfect backdrop for the new installment to the Jurassic World trilogy.
The medieval architecture, preserved churches, majestic palaces and historical narrow streets of Malta provided movie director Colin Trevorrow the cinematic stage for high octane motorcycle chase with the casts evading vicious stealth hunters and close escapes from new dinosaurs species introduced in the new movie.
Apart from being a film-makers paradise, the Mediterranean hotspot enjoys 3,000 hours of sunshine a year with warm summer months and mild winter temperatures. History buffs, nights-owls, adrenaline junkies, water-sports enthusiasts and food-lovers will delight in the many exquisite offerings of Malta.
Malta Tourism Authority Chief Executive Officer Carlo Micallef looks forward to welcoming more Asian visitors to discover Malta.
“We are so proud of our beautiful islands with its deep blue seas, Mediterranean country side and historical architecture that has formed the backdrop for over 200 international movies, films and television productions,” Mr. Micallef said.
“There is so much more to explore and discover in Malta for our Asian visitors who can immerse themselves in the vibrant Maltese culture. From cultural village and music festivals, meandering though charming cobbled streets enjoying a distinctive Maltese snack of Pastizzi, stepping back into history within the UNESCO World Heritage sites and soaking up the warm sunshine while swimming through clear blue waters.
“We’ll love to take you from the big screen to the beautiful reality and welcome you to visit Malta soon.
