Twenty years (yes, twenty) after its intial theatrical release, Jurassic Park returns to movie theaters; for the first time in 3D.
Millionaire John Hammond (played by Oscar winning director Richard Attenborough – “Gandhi”) launches a dinosaur theme-park…with real dinosaurs that he has cloned from DNA found encased in fossils. Hammond asks two dinosaur experts and a select group of observers to take a trial-run through the park as it is fine-tuned before its grand opening. A hurricane and an unscrupulous engineer throw the park into disarray as the dinosaurs rebel against their captors and destroy the park and terrorizing the guests.
Jurassic Park earned more than $350 million during its release in 1993. In 2013 dollars, that would be over $700 million.
We cannot imagine Jurassic Park making much, if any, money at theaters since it played repeatedly on cable channels in the United States from late 2012 through early 2013.
