Mercedes-Benz, as you may know, has been an official partner of the Jurassic Park franchise from the beginning. With the upcoming Jurassic World installment, they are taking this relationship to the next level, squeezing no less than five models into the movie.
It all started with the M-Class making a guest appearance in the Jurassic Park many many years ago. Today, and in the new latest iteration of the hugely popular dinosaur movie, Mercedes is represented by the all-new GLE Class, the mighty G63 AMG and its 6×6 version, the Sprinter van, and of course, a Unimog. And to think we mocked Audi for getting carried away with Fifty Shades of Grey!
So in Jurassic World the new Mercedes GLE is driven by operations manager Claire, played by Bryce Dallas Howard, and she is joined by behavioral researcher Owen (Chris Pratt), who will drive the heavier, more manly stuff. Mercedes-Benz will be chronicling the production of the movie in a series of behind the scenes videos, but for now check out these teaser and pictures showcasing the roles the three-pointed star play in the film.
“In 1997 the Mercedes-Benz M-Class made its first official appearance in the Hollywood Blockbuster ‘The Lost World: Jurassic Park’. Today, 18 years later, another Mercedes-Benz car will debut in a significant role in the latest installment of the groundbreaking Jurassic Park series named Jurassic World: the new GLE Coupé”, says Dr. Jens Thiemer, Vice President Marketing Mercedes-Benz Cars. “We are delighted to continue our partnership with a multitude of Mercedes-Benz vehicles and will promote the film and our cars with many exciting global marketing activities.”
