Despite being over a decade since the last entry, Universal is reviving the Jurassic Park franchise, with June of 2014 seeing the release of a fourth movie.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the first Jurassic Park, which is causing me no small amount of hand-wringing and consternation. I remember going to a now-defunct theater in Oakbrook Terrace, IL (last I checked the location was now a huge Cheesecake Factory) to stand in line hours before the first showing on opening day (ahhh…1993, when I had nothing better to do on a weekday morning) with a bunch of my movie geek friends. We eventually decided the second entry was a better movie and that holds up in hindsight. Not that the first movie wasn’t good, but let’s be honest and say that Spielberg’s heart wasn’t really in either this or Hook two years prior
