We have been on the look out for some great classic film re-makes in 3D, and we’ve just hit gold again!
Since it’s release in June of 1993, “Jurassic Park” has continued to awe movie lovers with effects that still hold their own in a time of amazing technology, as well as recruit a new generation of fans. The digital special effects used in the film have been copied by many other filmmakers, and “Jurassic Park” director Steven Spielburg still uses them today.
“[W]e invented the technology,” Spielburg said in an interview with Moviefone. “We’re not just standing on the shoulders of giants; we’re the inventors of the technology to begin with. The first leading characters in history that were digital characters were the dinosaurs in ‘Jurassic Park.’ That had never happened before.”
Based on the book of the same name by Michael Crichton, the movie has blown away a lot of other blockbusters with worldwide earnings of $914.6 million and has spawned two subsequent films in the series, “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” and “Jurassic Park 3“. It has become a phenomenon in the film industry and could very well go on to be director Steven Spielburg’s first $1 billion movie.
In that same interview, Spielburg named the original “Jurassic Park” as the only one of his films he’d want to see done in 3D, and now it looks like that’s his latest project. Early reports have the release date set as July 19th, 2013.
Because the effects were so good to begin with, a lot of fans are questioning why a 3D version needs to be made, especially since several other movies have been re-released lately in the format during a huge 3D fad, including “Titanic“, “The Lion King“, and “Star Wars: Episode 1-Phantom Menace“. Twitter reaction to the news has been varied.
