It’s been nearly 20 years since Jurassic Park first opened in 1993, and the classic film will be marking that 20-year anniversary by returning to theaters in 3D this coming April.
With toys, video games, theme park rides, and two movie sequels to its name, director Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park has spent the twenty years since its inception as a world renowned franchise. The first film alone made $914.7 million worldwide when it was first released.
Although the film is unquestionably a classic of modern cinema, it’s questionable how much a 3D conversion can add to the film. It was, after all, released in theaters twenty years ago without any thought of it being a 3D film in the first place. And, arguably, many of today’s films that go through the 3D conversion process come out the other end without much more to show. Will Jurassic Park prove to be worth the extra $3-$5 to see in 3D?
Starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum, Jurassic Park brought to life many a child’s fantasy of seeing living, breathing dinosaurs up close. Using the best technology the 90s had to offer, Spielberg created a world both terrifying and mesmerizing.
In the film, Neill, Dern, and Goldblum race across the island amusement park of Jurassic Park in search of an escape after the dinosaurs are let loose.
A new trailer has been released to go along with the 3D re-release of the film and can be found below.
