Richard Attenborough

The recent passing of actor/director Richard Attenborough touched on many aspects of his vast career in front of and behind the camera. From roles in The Great Escape, The Flight of the Phoenix and Ten Little Indians to directing gigs like Chaplin, A Chorus Line and his grand slam Oscar-winner Ghandi, Attenborough had a diverse and successful decades-spanning career. Still, he is, and will probably remain, best known for playing John Hammond, the creator of the dinosaur resort island in Jurassic Park. Apropos, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow revealed a touching and fairly symbolic nod to the actor in the upcoming sequel. (more…)

Looks like Universal Studios noticed how big the 3D re-release of Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace was. The studio has decided to up the ante and re-release one of their own top franchises with full 3D treatment.

Steven Spielberg‘s Jurassic Park has been announced for a complete 3D¬†conversion, with a released scheduled for July 19th, 2013. That’s right in time for the 20th anniversary next summer.

A 3D re-release of the now-classic adaptation starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough and a much younger Samuel L. Jackson,  should go off bigger then watching the T-Rex eat that poor bastard in the outhouse.

Is anyone else excited for the chance to that DNA mascot in full 3D glory next year? Or has the whole 3D converted picture phase already run it’s course?
