Malta’s charming medieval cityscape overlooking the scintillating Mediterranean Sea formed the backdrop to the new Jurassic World 3: Dominion film. It’s with this film that showcases the charming capital of Valletta that Malta Tourism Authority anticipates renewed interest in the country’s touristic offerings.

In support of the Malta Tourism Authority and Malta Film Commission, movie director Colin Trevorrow took to the opulent palaces, meandering narrow streets and other medieval buildings to film the movie’s scenes which included a high-speed motorcycle chase with dinosaurs nipping at the heels of actor Chris Pratt.

Jurassic World 3: Dominion is not the only movie to have filmed in Malta. The Maltese islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino have been the location for many internationally renowned films such as Gladiator, Troy, World War Z, and Game of Thrones.

"We'll love to take you from the big screen to the beautiful reality and welcome you to visit Malta soon,” said Carlo Micallef, CEO of Malta Tourism Authority. “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.”

"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.”
