Do you feel like our modern zoos are missing a bit of giant reptilian beats? Or do you feel like using a fossil to recreate a T-Rex sounds like a great idea? Dive into the sci-fi adventure movie Jurassic Park !
Jurassic Park was directed by Steven Spielberg (Jaws, Indiana Jones…) and released in 1993, it is based on Michael Crichton’s novel of the same name (1990). We follow the story of John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) as he is cloning dinosaurs and prehistoric flora to build a theme park called Jurassic Park on the fictional island of Isla Nubar, near Costa-Rica. An accident happened at the park and his investors order him to hire a group of experts to evaluate the risks. He explains his scientifical prowesses to the experts and tells them the dinosaurs cannot reproduce as they are all females, and chaos theorist Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) answers that nature will find a way. While John Hammond is taking them for a tour, a tropical storm approaches the island and Dennis Nedry, his lead computer programmer who has been corrupted by a rival corporation, shuts down the security system. The storm hits Isla Nubar and the dinosaurs escape. The small group will have to find a way to survive all those dangerous prehistoric beasts, including a group of Velociraptor and a very hungry Tyrannosaurus Rex.
Jurassic Park was an instant classic on release and had a tremondous cultural impact worlwide. It’s probably one of the main reason why our generation can recognize a Pteranodon, a Diplodocus and a Ankylosaurus instantly. The T-Rex became one of the most iconic monster antagonist of all time. Jurassic Park had four sequels : The Lost World, Jurassic Park III and 2 under the Jurassic World franchise. Jurassic Park even had some cheaper rip-off like the Carnosaur movies. The first Jurassic Park movie is now considered as one of the greatest adventure movies of all time.
