He added that Mercedes is delighted to continue its partnership with the series and will promote the film and the cars in it with global marketing activities.

Jurassic World takes place 22 years after the original 1993 movie, Jurassic Park. In the new film, a new amusement park has opened, and genetic experiments on dinosaurs are being conducted, and the usual dire consequences and following Superorder-related mayhem can be expected. The film, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, premieres next month.
