'Jurassic Park' Returns to Theaters in 3D for Summer 2013 Release
Audiences are already looking to head back to Titanic in 3D next month, but having already witnessed the majesty of the unsinkable ship again, I'm looking forward to the next big theatrical re-release, and this one is a bit more exciting. Jeff Sneider from Variety has just revealed that Jurassic Park will return to theaters in 3D on July 19th, 2013. That means audiences will have to sit very still in their seats for fear of being devoured by that monstrous Tyrannosaurus Rex. Of course, since the film wasn't shot in 3D, this is only a conversion. But if there's one film that should make it fun, it's Steven Spielberg's modern classic.
In addition, this will hit theaters in time to celebrate the film's 20th anniversary. That's right, it will have been 20 years since the film hit theaters in 1993. As a kid, I was already psyched about seeing dinosaurs come to life, but hearing that T-Rex roar in glorious theatrical surround sound was just frightening and magical all at the same time. It also spawned tons of kids to suddenly become aware of the velociraptor and claim it as their new favorite dinosaur; unless you had that stupid friend who inexplicably liked the Brontosaurus. Spielberg has said Jurassic Park was the only film he would re-release in 3D and Universal liked that idea enough to make it happen. Or they're desperate. Will you see Jurassic Park in 3D?
