The wait is over folks, Jurassic Park 3D is no longer just a probably bad idea that seems like a clear-as-day money grab! It’s as official as this brand new poster that was released today on the official Jurassic Park Facebook page, for the 20th anniversary (I feel old) re-release of the epic dinosaur movie from Universal Pictures.
A trailer was just released today for Jurassic Park 3D and it’s goose-pimple inducing! It’s really good. That damn music gets me every time! OK, now I’m pretty excited about this… Check out the trailer here!
But all joshing aside, the poster is pretty cool. It’s simple, and features the iconic T-rex bone logo and equally iconic giant-ass door we all instantly recognize and conjures up all sorts of genuine “Oohs!” and “Aahs!” upon first glance. And even though I’m pretty much completely against the conversion of a non-3D/originally-2D shot film into 3D, it’s undeniable that Jurassic Park would be awesome! (If done right.)
Frank Marshall, the producer of the film and long time collaborator with Speilberg has said that Stevie will be personally overseeing the 3D conversion, so that’s a good sign.
I’m one of the few guys at SourceFed who’s actually a fan of 3D technology. I’ve embraced it, much like directing giants Peter Jackson, Martin Scorsese, and of course James Cameron. I stand firmly behind the idea that if our reality is in 3 dimensions, then why not our entertainment too?
And I’m not saying let’s replace 2D completely, I like that we have the option to choose and I think that’s how it should be until whatever the next movie technology is (And don’t say “Smell-O-Vision” because that’s awful, no one wants to smell that giant Triceratops turd from Jurassic Park).
Anyway I’m actually excited about this and likely will be seeing it with a bunch of friends and a theater filled with people who remember and love that damn movie, which still holds up amazingly well (Unlike the Super Mario Bros. movie which came out the same year… fuck I’m old), and don’t even get me started about the visual effects, which arguably look better than many modern CG-overdosed action films of the past 10 years.
Jurassic Park 3D debuts in 3D and IMAX 3D April 5th 2013.
Question: Do you think films like Jurassic Park should have their 3D-conversions?
