Perhaps my favorite film of all time, if not my top 5 of all time, is Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park. I always had a fascination with dinosaurs when I was wee ol’ boy, but of course, the mere thought of ever seeing one move implicated time traveling. Not in this lifetime. But when I stood in line at the theaters back in the summer of 1993 in Queens, NY, I thought I traveled back in time and was there to see a dinosaur in the flesh. That is the power this movie had on me back then and still holds over me today.
So you could just imagine how I reacted when I heard that the re-release in 3D was coming for 2013. It gives me another chance to relive some very happy memories.
Arriving in theaters next summer, Jurassic Park is celebrating it’s 20th Anniversary. The 1993 dinosaur Steven Spielberg/Michael Crichton classic, has been digitally restored and will be re-released in 3D next April.
The Jurassic Park Facebook page has unveiled this brand new poster for the release, featuring the iconic gigantic wooden doors re-stamped with a 3D logo.
If you never saw the film or just need a refresher, the plot goes like this: Huge advancements in scientific technology have been able to create an island full of living dinosaurs. John Hammond has invited four individuals, plus his two grandchildren to join him at Jurassic Park. But will everything go to plan? Especially when one of the parks own workers attempt to steal the dinosaurs embryos, and have to shut down all the electricity in the process. It’s now a race for survival with everyone located all over the island.
The re-release of another classic – Raiders of the Lost Ark – made $3 million dollars at the box office for 1 week. I think Jurassic Park will do just as much if not better!
