Deco Features: Jurassic Park 3D
Jurassic Park earned almost a billion at the box office and Spielberg has said it's the only one in the franchise he ever wanted to convert to 3D. Well now he's done it. And star Laura Dern's telling Deco it's even more awesome and terrifying.
Jurassic Park star Laura Dern's already had her turn.
LAURA DERN: "It's so amazing. It really is amazing. The raptors are they are kind of in your lap. I hid in my eleven year-old son's shoulder. And he leaned over and said, 'Mom, you're in this scene - why are you scared? You know what's coming.'"
Converting to 3D wasn't easy, but as Jeff Goldblum put it...
JEFF GOLDBLUM: One thing that the history of evolution has taught us it's that life cannot be contained, life breaks free, expands to new territories, crashes through barriers painfully maybe even dangerously but..."
LAURA DERN: "I think the first thing you think of is oh my God the raptors in 3D. The T-Rex in 3D and it is that much more terrifying. But what I hadn't expected and really had forgotten is just how majestic and awe inspiring ahh some of those first images are.
Yet a generation has grown up feeling like objects on the screen may be a bit larger than they appear.
LAURA DERN: "Yeah, I mean they've seen a raptor on an itouch. They've only seen Jurassic Park this size. They're seeing it projected for the first time - not just in 3D."
JP3D hits the big screen Friday. We'll keep and eye out for it.
