  • As I type these words, I can’t believe they are true: “Jurassic Park” turns 20 this year. It’s hard to believe it’s been that long since audiences first got a glimpse of the park and a technology that shaped future films.

    In 1993, Steven Spielberg brought Michael Crichton’s book to the big screen. It became a movie as colossal as the dinosaurs it featured.
