10 Jurassic Park Facts You Never Knew
"Life finds a way." And so did Jurassic Park, leaping from the page to the screen with Steven Spielberg's 1993 blockbuster, launching a franchise around prehistoric DNA. Here we'll take a look at 10 things you never knew about Jurassic Park.

The ER connection.

Steven Spielberg met with Michael Crichton to discuss an entirely different project, one that eventually turned into the TV hospital drama ER, which Crichton would later create and executive produce. It was in that meeting where Spielberg turned his attention to Crichton's dinosaur tale, which the author was still writing at the time. When Hollywood got its hands on galleys for Jurassic Park in 1990, a number of high-profile directors were interested as well, including Superman director Richard Donner, Batman director Tim Burton and Terminator director James Cameron.

25 Forgettable '90s Superhero Movies Only Superfans Remember

The '90s was a difficult time for superhero movies.

Back then, big studios were desperate to cash-in on the appeal of the comic book heroes that kids and adults alike adored. Big name characters on both sides of the Marvel and DC Comics divide became hot property.

In some cases, like <em>Batman</em>, the results proved mixed, to say the least. In other instances, like <em>Spider-Man</em>, fans never got to see the results, with James Cameron among the big names to try and fail to get a movie starring the web-slinger off the ground.

The clamor was intense, with pretty much any and all notable characters considered for their own big screen adventure. So much so, in fact, that pretty soon any old superhero was getting a shot at the big time.
