U.S., 1993, 127 min, 35mm, Dir. Steven Spielberg, Rated PG-13, Universal Pictures
"Spielberg’s peerless twin gift has always been for making the fantastic seem real and the real fantastic." – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
Few films inspire the imagination as much as Steven Spielberg’s landmark adventure film Jurassic Park. When released in 1993, its CGI and animatronic dinosaurs were unlike anything the world had seen before. It was hard not to believe an actual island was created with these long-dead behemoths roaming the land. Based on Michael Crichton’s book of the same name, the film follows paleontologists Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) as they are invited by eccentric millionaire John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) to preview his new theme park located off an island in Costa Rica that is full of live dinosaurs. But when an unscrupulous employee knocks out the power grid during a tropical storm, the dinos are unleashed, including the terrifying Tyrannosaurs rex. Welcome to Jurassic Park.
