Great news Jurassic Park fans … today we are hearing that the classic 1993 film will be released in theaters next year IN 3D! Now, while some of y’all are not big fans of 3D, I must say … I am crazy excited by this news. There aren’t too many details about this re-release but I am assuming that Steven Spielberg will oversee the 3D conversion in order to ensure the film will turn out well. Click below to read more … and get excited, folks. Jurassic Park is coming back to theaters in 2013!!
Wasn’t it just months ago that Steven Spielberg seemed to have moved beyond the idea of tinkering with old movies? At a screening of Raiders of the Lost Ark last year, Spielberg said he regretted digitally altering E.T., and suggested that future home video releases of that and Raiders would be their original ’81 and ’82 versions. But we’re still going to get a 3D version of Jurassic Park. The film was just dated for re-release today, and will hit theaters on July 19, 2013 according to Jeff Sneider of Variety. Spielberg did also say last year that the only one of his films he’s interested in post-converting to 3D is the original Jurassic Park. But at that point, it seemed like only an idea. Granted, if done well, the experience could be a good one, but without seeing any footage there’s no way to tell at this point. We’ve got no info on when the first 3D footage might show up, but Comic Con is a safe guess.
Jurassic Park remains one of my all-time favorite films particularly because of the way it absolutely BLEW MY MIND when I saw it originally in the theater. Those of you who remember seeing Jurassic Park when it was released back in the early 90’s know what I’m talking about. The FX and animatronics are near flawless … I remember watching that film for the first time slack-jawed and mouth agape wondering, How in the HELL did they do that? I’d love to see Jurassic Park on the big screen again … and, yes, I’m excited about the 3D. If done well, I imagine that Jurassic Park in 3D will blow minds again. At least, that is what I’m hoping for :) What do y’all think? Are you excited by news of this Jurassic Park re-release?
