'Jurassic Park' to be released in 3-D in 2013

By Robert Kirchgassner,

Steven Spielberg’s classic film Jurassic Park (1993) will be re-released in 3-D in 2013.

The release will coincide with the film’s 20th anniversary, which stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum and Richard Attenborough. Upon its original June 11 release, Jurassic topped the list of highest-moneymaking movies of all time, until 1997 with Titanic (which itself is due for a 3-D rerelease in April). It would also win Academy Awards for Best Visual Effects, Sound and Sound Effects Editing. The movie’s success would also lead to the sequels The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997) and Jurassic Park III (2001).

"The only movie that I would ever even consider retrofitting is the first Jurassic Park," Spielberg said. "I think would look pretty spectacular in 3D."

The film was based on Michael Crichton’s book of the same name, which focuses on a group of people dealing with genetically-engineered dinosaurs which have run amok.

“I’m not a huge proponent of post-conversion,” said Jurassic’s producer Kathleen Kennedy, “but I think if the filmmaker gets intricately involved in the post-conversion then I think it can be really, really good. I think Jurassic Park is a perfect example of a movie that could work really, really well as a 3D picture.”

The revamped movie has a release date of July 19.
