Based on Michael Crichton’s novel of the same name, the first Jurassic Park movie, directed by Steven Spielberg, was released on June 9, 1993. The science fiction film went on to win more than twenty awards, including three Academy Awards and to this day, is widely regarded as the benchmark for computer-generated imagery and animatronics. The franchise has since gone on to make four successful sequels, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III, Jurassic World, and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Spielberg is well known for including cleverly placed Easter eggs and the Jurassic Park franchise is no exception. So without further ado, here is every hidden we could find while watching the Jurassic Park films. As always, if we missed something you feel should’ve been included, let us know in the comments below.
The Jurassic Park Phase
Interestingly enough, many scientists have confirmed that the study of paleontology took a massive spike following the release and popularity of Michael Crichton’s 1990 novel, Jurassic Park. Three years later, when Steven Spielberg’s adaptation was released, the interest only intensified.
Fun fact: By the mid-90s, the number of people searching for fossils had grown exponentially – a time scientist dubbed, “the Jurassic Park phase”. Steve Brusatte, a paleontologist at the University of Edinburgh, told The Guardian that,“so many of my colleagues, people of my age, my generation, would tell you point-blank that Jurassic Park made them want to be a scientist, and it’s true that a lot of museums and a lot of universities started to hire paleontologists right after that film, because dinosaurs exploded.”http://english.alghad.com/articles/802591-Biggest-dinosaur-ever-discovered
