A little while back I was wondering through a cineplex and for a brief moment it felt like I had travelled back in time to the 1990s, what with the all the posters advertising the re-releases of Star Wars Episode 1, Titanic and Beauty And The Beast, all converted to 3D. It seems as if that feeling of deja vu isn’t going to go away soon as it has been announced that a 3D conversion of Steven Spielberg’s classic Jurassic Park will be coming out way in the summer of 2013.
It seems like an odd move from Spielberg who expressed regret after altering his classic E.T. for a DVD release by changing the guns in the hands of the government agents chasing the lead characters into less-threatening walkie-talkies. Spielberg received criticism for the digital switch and vowed that he wouldn’t alter that or any of his other films ever again. More recently he did express an interest in possibly converting Jurassic Park to 3D, so I guess as long as he keeps the original available he’s not really gone back on his word. Right?
