Jurassic Park recently received a 3D post-conversion for re-release even though the film is astounding without the 3D. I don’t know if it will make the film any better (probably not), but now it will be getting the IMAX treatment as well. I wish the movie would get the IMAX without the 3D like Raiders of the Lost Ark, but I can’t deny the temptation to see Jurassic Park on an IMAX screen.
Hit the jump for the press release. Jurassic Park 3D opens April 5th. The IMAX engagement is for one-week.
IMAX Corporation and Universal Pictures today announced that Steven Spielberg’s 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 beginning 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.
“Jurassic Park is the quintessential film for fans to experience in IMAX 3D,” said Nikki Rocco, President of Distribution, Universal Pictures. “Jurassic Park was groundbreaking when it was originally released, and The IMAX 3D Experience® will allow today’s audiences to become fully immersed in one of the most breathtaking epics Universal has ever released.”
“Steven Spielberg’s films resonate uniquely with audiences,” said Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment. “We’re thrilled to offer moviegoers an opportunity to see this fan favorite back on the big screen and transport them – for the first time through the power of The IMAX 3D Experience® – into the world of Jurassic Park.”
The IMAX release of Jurassic Park has been digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.
