Jurassic Park is based on a novel by Michael Crichton. It is based on an island west of Costa Rica in an amusement park. The amusement park is a novelty; something that has never been seen before. It is basically a safari, where the wild animals are, in fact, dinosaurs. Hammond, the owner of the island, has found dinosaur DNA and has used this to create living, breathing animals. A group of people, including a chaotician, an archaeologist and a paleobotanist have come to the island to observe what the island is about and submit an opinion on whether the island is safe for humans. They agree and set out on their tour of the island.
After the initial tour of the island, almost every member of the party is convinced that the park is amazing, but each person also has a small problem with the park. Ian, the chaotician, is worried about the dinosaurs' being able to breed. The paleobotanist is worried about the plants on the island, some of which are poisonous. Hammond dismisses their concerns and insists on everyone going on another tour the next day.
While everyone, including Hammond's grandchildren, are out on their second tour, the electricity and computers are disabled and the dinosaurs get loose. This is when the real action of the movie begins. When the dinosaurs get loose, most everyone is in the park trying to get back to the main building, and because of this they are loose in the park with no protection from the dinosaurs.
Two of the most heartwarming parts of the movies are when Alan gets to see the dinosaurs up close and personal. At one point, he gets to hold a baby velociraptor. This is designed to allow the audience to connect with the dinosaurs, and even sympathize with them. They are dangerous animals, and should never be allowed to run free, but at the same time, they are animals out of time, and are only acting by instinct. Having humans in their man-made habitat is dangerous. Every human on the island must work together to survive these magnificent animals, and escape the island alive.
"Jurassic World" is either going to be the best movie ever, or the dumbest. If JoBlo is to be trusted (and when it comes to leaked plot details, it usually is), we know a few small details about the upcoming "Jurassic Park" reboot, "Jurassic World." And they're...different. Here's how the article describes one of the new dino creatures: "They splice together a T-Rex, raptor, snake, and cuttlefish to create a monstrous new dino that, of course, gets loose and terrorizes the park.
It's "third time's a charm" for "Jurassic Park" actor Jeff Goldblum. He has popped the question to his girlfriend of two years, and she (emphatically) has said YES. Emilie Livingston, 31, bragged the news on her Twitter over the weekend, sharing the hashtag-laced announcement along with a picture of her and Goldblum, 61, embracing. "Jul 8 he proposed @ our fav #okstore. I was taken over by tears of joy n ecstasy! We picked the ring 2gether #inlove." The pair then flew to Maui for a romantic vacation, and she showed off the ring as she stood beside Haleakala, a dormant volcano.
Scary! Being a celebrity certainly does have its downfalls. Paparazzi, stalkers… you know, the usual. Jeff Goldblum is one of the man celebs who would be happy to fill you in. Last night his own personal stalker was arrested for violating her restraining order. Linda Ransom has been harassing the “Jurassic Park” star for more than ten years according to Goldblum. She would follow him constantly, in public, or showing up at his house uninvited, or appearing multiple times to watch his stage performances in New York or Los Angeles.
Though it has been hibernating long enough that the world thought it was extinct, “Jurassic Park 4” is springing back to life with an official director. Colin Trevorrow will be bringing us the fourth installment of the dinosaur flicks. It is a pretty serious promotion for Trevorrow, whose only other directed film was “Safety Not Guaranteed.” The quirky flick earned him a nomination for an Independent Spirit Award for Best First Feature. Apparently, despite his short resume, the studio and attached filmmakers think Trevorrow is a great match for the flick.

Producer Frank Marshall recently confirmed to Collider that the long-rumored fourth "Jurassic Park" entry has a tentative ballpark timeframe. Marshall was stumping for another major sequel to which he's attached, next month's "The Bourne Legacy" starring Jeremy Renner, when he claimed "it will be on the screen within two years." Unsurprisingly calling it a "popcorn movie," Universal Pictures is for now shooting for a summer release, Marshall elaborated.
We already knew that the seed of an idea had been planted in Steven Spielberg's head, but now it's official: "Jurassic Park" is about to get a re-release in 3D. Spielberg had mentioned some of his regrets over editing "ET" last year, so it was safe to assume that he wasn't interested in messing with any of his other movies (unlike his colleague George Lucas). But he did mention that a 3D re-release of "Jurassic Park" might be the exception... and here it is.
