‘Jurassic Park’ to be re-released in 3D

1993 dinosaur adventure will get 3D treatment next year

Jurassic Park will be re-released in 3D next year, according to reports.

Steven Spielberg’s 1993 dinosaur adventure will be given a 3D refit, says Total Film, with the flick set to hit US screens on July 19 2013, with a UK date likely to be confirmed in the future.

In December last year, Spielberg revealed that he thought the film would be a perfect fit for 3D. The director said that James Cameron’s Avatar had the “greatest 3D in history” and that he would be looking to the filmmaker for inspiration, adding: “If we follow his precepts, more films will be post-converted, but the only movie I’m interested in post-converting is the first Jurassic.”


In January, however, he revealed that he would not be directing Jurassic Park 4. Although a fourth movie in the blockbuster franchise is still set to go ahead, Spielberg revealed that he would only be producing the film, rather than helming the whole project.

His last film, War Horse, was released in the UK on January 13.
