Released into 3-D on April 5, 2013, for the movie's 20th Anniversary. Other countries saw the re-release over the following six months. This release also had a Burger King promotional tie-in. Many people felt the 3-D conversion didn't enhance the effects in any way, mainly because most of the dinosaur scenes are set at night, and shadows don't come out the screen very well the way the day scenes do. This re-release pushed the movie's total gross to one billion dollars, the seventeenth movie to do so. It now ranks as the fourteenth highest grossing movie worldwide, the sixteenth highest grossing movie in North America (unadjusted for inflation), and the highest grossing movie released by Universal Pictures and directed by Steven Spielberg. Spielberg claimed he had produced the movie with a "subconscious 3-D", since the movie has animals walking toward the cameras and some effects of foreground and background overlay. In 2011, he stated that this movie was the only movie he had made he had considered for a conversion, and once he saw the 3-D version of Titanic (1997), he really liked the new look of the movie, and he hired the same retrofitting company. Spielberg and Janusz Kaminski supervised the nine month process during the production of Lincoln (2012). Industrial Light & Magic contributed some elements and updated effects shots for a better visual enhancement. See more »
Despite his pride at being such a showman, Hammond made the Tyrannosaurus Rex the second animal on the tour, rendering it rather anticlimactic. Any tour including such an animal would save it for last, for maximum effect. See more »

Even though it was adapted from a book, this unique story was destined to become an incredible film. Great casting, decent acting, great special effects, beautiful and perfect score by John Williams, incredible directing. I believe this movie has to be one of the greatest science fiction films ever made. Although not entirely true to the book, (though someone should never say a movie is not good because it is not exactly like the book because that really doesn't matter) Steven Spielberg made this story a landmark in special effects and a standard for thriller films to be compared to. It also contains some scenes that are instant classics, such as the first time they see the dinosaurs, the kitchen scene with the raptors, the end scene with the raptors and the T-Rex, the scene with the T-Rex and the kids in the jeep, and of course the scene where the T-Rex chases the jeep. I will keep this movie in my list of favorites and classics till the day i die.
