Jurassic World is set to hit theaters next Friday, so it only makes sense that the folks at Cinefix would look back over the film series to talk about some facts you (probably) didn’t know about the Jurassic Park series of films. We’ve been saturated with so much information and teaser junk at this point, it almost feels like we’ve seen the movie and it is a part of our pop culture existence by now.
That’s not the case, of course, but the original movie certainly is a pop culture staple. Along with The Lost World (they ignore Jurassic Park III), the series features plenty of facts that you can investigate from the screen. Seven seems like only the tip of the iceberg, but you have to keep these videos short.
The production gets the praise it deserves in this video. We’ve all heard the tale about the rain screwing up the T-Rex animatronic, but you sometimes forget the gravity of the CGI special effects with the current film climate. It was a big deal, and something I didn’t grasp at the time in 1993. It is fun to look back at what might’ve been if the computer effects had failed and we got stuck with the stop-motion animations that were being planned. Would it be as classic as it is now?
