Cocoon: The Return (1988)

Directed by
Daniel Petrie

Daniel Petric rises to the challenge of directing this sequel to Ron Howard's successful original well. Those who chose immortality with the Antareans return with the aliens. The visitors are back to rescue a cocoon found on the ocean floor and now the subject of scientific investigation, while the immortal old folk are back to visit growing grandsons and ageing friends. Once again, Don Ameche, Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn steal the film, but new face Elaine Strich, as the hotel owner the others try to fix up with stay-behind Jack Gilford, is also a delight. As the two plots merge, can the Antareans rescue their friend, and will the immortals return or stay on Earth to grow old and die?
