Universal Pictures' Jurassic Park Remastered for a New Generation
Jurassic Park's impact on the industry, and NBCUniversal, cannot be overstated. It shattered records and set the box office bar for the next era of epic Hollywood mega-films, grossing over $900 million worldwide, eclipsing Spielberg's previous record-holder, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. The film also spawned two sequels, a fourth installment, slated for a summer of 2014 release, and a pair of thrill rides for Universal Parks and Resorts.
By remastering Jurassic Park in state-of-the-art 3D, Spielberg introduces the three-time Academy Award winner to a new generation of moviegoers and allows longtime fans to experience the world he envisioned in a way that was unimaginable during the film’s original release.
Starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Samuel L. Jackson and Richard Attenborough, Jurassic Park is based on the novel by Michael Crichton and is produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Gerald R. Molen.
In their words:
"It would be all too easy to detail the ways in which Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park was a game changer in the realm of summer blockbusters and major-studio releases in general. Its June 1993 release shattered a number of box office records and kicked off the glorious second act of Steven Spielberg’s illustrious career. But the story is more complicated than that. Jurassic Park was a movie precisely of its time. In some ways it did lead the charge in terms of how films were made and released. In other ways, quite frankly, it was one of the last of its kind. Jurassic Park is perhaps a defining example of the perfect combination of newfangled and old-school blockbuster film-making. It represented both a preview of what was to come and the last gasp of traditional mainstream movie-making in one glorious concoction." - Forbes Magazine (April 5, 2013)
