The dino epic that started it all! Wealthy entrepreneur John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) has secretly created a theme park. Its main attraction? Living dinosaurs created from prehistoric DNA. He invites doctors Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) along with his two eager grandchildren to experience the park and help calm anxious investors. The park is anything but amusing as the security systems go off-line and the dinosaurs escape.
Jeff Goldblum, Samuel L. Jackson, and Wayne Knight round out an unforgettable cast. Add in a very quotable script and some magical John Williams music and you’ve got the recipe for one of the best films of the last 30 years.
