Spielberg's Role: Director
US Release Date: 1993
What is there to say about Spielberg's Jurassic Park?
Steven Spielberg felt some need deep down to see if he
could break his own record at the box office (set by E.T.).
I think he proved his point! One of the more amazing
parts of this gigantic movie was that Spielberg was
working on Schindler's List at the same time. The quality
of both movies are unbelievable.
Jurassic Park is about Dinosaurs
being brought back to life as part of a DNA experiment.
The founder of the experiment (played by Richard
Attenbdrough)was planning on making his finding into an
amusement park. He brings two scientists (Played by Sam
Niell and Laura Dern) and a mathematician (played by Jeff
Goldblum) to look around and give their approval, but not
everything about the island is going to cooperate.
The Dinosaurs in the movie were
designed by Industrial Light and Magic (ILM) which is
owned by George Lucas. Silicon Graphics won't let anyone
forget that their machines were used in the modeling
process. The software used was Microsoft's SoftImage. The
story is based on a book by Michael Crichton who also
wrote Congo and the sequel to Jurassic Park. The
Music was composed by John Williams, who also wrote the
music to Jaws and at least 11 other Spielberg Films.
The best script
I could find was the Crichton's first draft.
