You can celebrate a cinema classic in theaters later this month. Really, what says “summer blockbuster” like the original Jurassic Park?
The 1993 feature will return to theaters August 25, celebrating the dino flick’s 30th anniversary. But in an effort to make the experience bigger than ever for fans, there’s a twist: the movie will be re-released exclusively in 3D.
“There’s truly no better way to see Jurassic Park than on the big screen,” said Jim Orr, president of domestic theatrical distribution for Universal Pictures. “The monumental impact it made back in 1993 stands as a true testament to Steven Spielberg’s unparalleled genius. Not only did it firmly secure its place as a timeless classic, but its energy and excitement remain as vibrant as ever. With this release in RealD 3D cinemas across the US and Canada, we’re thrilled to offer moviegoers the chance to rediscover this movie once again on a big screen.”
Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park was originally converted to 3D back in 2013 for the film’s 20th anniversary. The first 3D re-release brought in $45 million at the domestic box office. (The original release of Jurassic Park earned $978 million worldwide.)
Jurassic Park is based on the bestselling novel by Michael Crichton, who wrote the film’s screenplay with David Koepp. The film stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum as experts invited to tour an island theme park full of cloned dinosaurs. It won three Oscars and ultimately launched a massive film franchise, with three Jurassic Park features and later an additional three Jurassic World features.
