IMAX and Universal Pictures today announced that Steven Spielberg’s original dinosaur epic Jurassic Park will return to the big screen with a one-week 3D engagement in IMAX theatres worldwide simultaneous with the film’s wide release starting April 5, 2013.
With his remastering of this epic film into a state-of-the-art 3D format, Steven Spielberg introduces the three-time Academy Award-winning blockbuster to a new generation of moviegoers and allows longtime fans to experience the world he envisioned in a way that was unimaginable during the film’s original release. Starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Samuel L. Jackson and Richard Attenborough, the film based on the novel by Michael Crichton is produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Gerald R. Molen.
