Jurassic Park will become the next iconic movie to be re-released in theaters as part of a 3D cash-in. Universal Pictures has confirmed that they’re converting Steven Spielberg’s epic dino movie into the pay higher ticket prices and wear funny glasses format.
Expect Jurassic Park 3D in theaters some time during July of 2013. As one of the first ever movies to use realistic computer effects it’s probably better suited than a lot of older films. CGI generally looks better in 3D than real objects or models (which Jurassic Park also used extensively).
The real question here is, will it be worth the effort? When George Lucas rolled out Phantom Menace for a 3D re-release a few weeks ago almost no one even noticed. The film slipped in and out of the box office with barely a whisper. On the other hand the recent 3D re-release of The Lion King was a smash box office success.
Which will Jurassic Par be? Do you want to see Spielberg’s dinosaurs in 3D?
