Briefly: Wasn’t it just months ago that Steven Spielberg seemed to have moved beyond the idea of tinkering with old movies? At a screening of Raiders of the Lost Ark last year, Spielberg said he regretted digitally altering E.T., and suggested that future home video releases of that and Raiders would be their original ’81 and ’82 versions.
But we’re still going to get a 3D version of Jurassic Park. The film was just dated for re-release today, and will hit theaters on July 19, 2013 according to Jeff Sneider of Variety. Spielberg did also say last year that the only one of his films he’s interested in post-converting to 3D is the original Jurassic Park. But at that point, it seemed like only an idea.
Granted, if done well, the experience could be a good one, but without seeing any footage there’s no way to tell at this point. We’ve got no info on when the first 3D footage might show up, but Comic Con is a safe guess.
