Universal Pictures will release Steven Spielberg’s groundbreaking masterpiece Jurassic Park in 3D. With the 20th anniversary of one of Universal Pictures’ most enduring hits approaching, the studio decided to reissue the film in theaters across the world, approaching theater owners with the idea of a 3D post-conversion for one of Universal’s favorite adventures, stunningly restored in 4K.
As technology shifts and changes the manner in which filmmakers are able to tell stories, 3D has provided the ability to bring audiences into the Jurassic Park that Steven Spielberg was subconsciously shooting. This type of design not only allows for an unexpected, nostalgic journey for those who embraced the film in 1993.
Although an entire generation has watched on the small screen while Lex and Tim outsmart cunning Velociraptors and stared in awe as Dr. Sattler and Dr. Grant stumble upon the herd of graceful Brachiosaurs, they’ve been unable to wholly immerse in the sights and sounds of the lush and deadly Isla Nublar.
It was critical to all to ensure that Jurassic Park continue to be enjoyed through the ages. Truly, when it’s done well, 3D completely brings the movie into the theater. The audience shouldn’t head home saying, “That scene had a great 3D effect!” Rather, you deserve an experience that envelops your mind in powerful visuals, soaring music and surround sound. To ensure this happened with the translation, the filmmakers led with one question: What does it feel like to sit in the middle of an orchestra?
As Spielberg collaborated with Stereo D, the team who designed the 3D conversion for Titanic, they went shot by shot through Jurassic Park to figure out how to evolve the movie and expand your senses within a new dimension. Now, when you hear the footfall of T. rex and see the glass of water tremble, wait for the baby raptor to hatch and vault with the Explorer off the barrier, you will feel as if you’re entering Jurassic Park for the first time.
Audiences enjoy Jurassic Park in 3D as much as the 700-plus-member team did painstakingly recalibrating it. As adventure seekers and honorary paleontologists, we share in the wonder of dinosaurs roaming the Earth once again…and in the awe of Man being there to greet them.
Starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Samuel L. Jackson and Richard Attenborough, the film based on the novel by Michael Crichton.
“Jurassic Park in 3-D” is released and distributed by United International Pictures through Solar Entertainment Corp.
