As the original Jurassic Park trilogy comes to Sky Cinema Greats, here are some fascinating facts about the world-changing series
Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III available in Sky Cinema on demand and on Sky Cinema Greats/HD (CH 434/404) from 9 to 10 June. Certs PG
Jurassic Park changed cinema as we know it. Not only was it a colossal box office success, launching a movie series beloved by audiences worldwide, it also ushered in a new age of visual effects. The film was the first to use “physically textured” computer-generated imagery (CGI) to create incredibly realistic creatures.
Twenty-five years and four movies later, those stompy, chompy beasts – from the terrifying Velociraptor, to the majestic Brachiosaur, to the iconic Tyrannosaurus Rex – have gone from strength to strength, growing in popularity as they become more sophisticated, varied and entertaining.
In the movies, it’s science that brings these prehistoric creatures back to life, but for many of us, it feels like magic. As the original Jurassic Park trilogy arrives on Sky Cinema Greats and the fifth film Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom lands in cinemas on 6 June, we’ve unearthed some of the secrets behind their spectacular tricks.
