Jurassic Park 3D is the 2013 3D re-release of Steven Spielberg's classic film that started it all. Jurassic Park in 3D came out in theaters April 5, 2013.
Steven Spielberg told that Jurassic Park was always shot in his mind in 3D. However, 3D wasn't ready in 1993. In 2011 Titanic was converted in 3D by Stereo D, and Spielberg was amazed by the effect. In an interview with Moviefone Spielberg told that "the only movie that I would ever even consider retrofitting is the first 'Jurassic Park,' which I think would look pretty spectacular in 3D. That's the only one of my films that I would consider doing in 3D." Spielberg thought that "perhaps the people that did the conversion for Titanic ... could do the same thing for Jurassic Park."
Cary Rydstrom made a remix of the sound effects in the film.
William Sherak, of Stereo D, told that the Main Road Attack Scene was "arguably the hardest thing we've ever converted in our career at Stereo D. For us it is all the things that make conversion difficult."
Steven Spielberg’s groundbreaking masterpiece has been re-mastered into a state-of-the-art 3D format, introducing the three-time Academy Award®-winning blockbuster to a new generation of moviegoers and allows longtime fans to experience the world he envisioned in a way that was unimaginable during the film’s original release.

Jurassic Park 3D opened in the theaters at April 5th 2013. It turned in a pleasing performance, coming in No. 4 domestically with $18.2 million, one of the top openings for a 3D redo (Titanic 3D opened to $17.3 million domestically). Overseas, Jurassic Park grossed $3 million from seven territories for a total opening of $21.2 million.
The 3D re-release generated record-breaking returns for IMAX, which delivered $6 million in ticket sales -- or 32 percent of the total gross, the biggest share ever for the large-format circuit.
In November 2012 Yahoo! Movies debuted a trailer for Jurassic Park 3D. Most of the trailer consisted of scenes from the film. The trailer features the new Universal logo. Furthermore, at the end of the trailer a new Jurassic Park Logo, with a roaring T. rex skeleton, was shown.
Changes from the original version of the film
- Old Universal logo is replaced by its modern logo.
- Letters in the opening titles and the credits are not moving anymore.
- The thunder when Gennaro urges to return to the cars is now accompanied by lightning.
- When the T. rex turns over the Safari vehicle, there used to be a stage light and a potted plant in the background.
