Steven Spielberg‘s Jurassic Park comes back to theaters on April 5 in 3D and IMAX. Even if you aren’t a fan of those formats, it’s a trip well worth taking simply because in the twenty years since its release, most of the times you’ve seen the film has been at home. Maybe you were even lucky enough to see it in a repertory theater but you haven’t seen it with a fully-functional, high-end sound system and projection since 1993. For that alone, Jurassic Park 3D is worth checking out. Spielberg’s movie works at any size, but it was meant to be seen big.
Watching the film again, you’ll marvel at how good the effects still look, even in the revealing 3D IMAX format. Part of that is the astonishing, Oscar-winning visual effects of Dennis Muren and the team at Industrial Light and Magic. It’s also because of the equally impressive way Spielberg blended those computer effects with practical effects done by Stan Winston and his team.
The Stan Winston School has been posting some great videos to YouTube recently and their latest takes us behind the scenes with the everyone’s favorite “veggiesaurus,” the Brachiosaur. Read More »
