Jurassic Park is a 1993 science fiction thriller film directed by Steven Spielberg and based on the novel of the same name by Michael Crichton. The film centers on the fictional island of Isla Nublar, where scientists have created an amusement park of cloned dinosaurs. John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) invites a group of scientists, played by Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum and Laura Dern, to inspect the park prior to its public opening. Sabotage sets the dinosaurs loose, and the technicians and visitors attempt to escape the island.

Plot

On Isla Nublar, an island to the West of Costa Rica, an employee for the genetic engineering company InGen is attacked and killed while placing a Velociraptor into a specially built enclosure, prompting a lawsuit from his family. CEO John Hammond is pressured by his investors to allow a safety inspection by experts before opening the park. He invites paleontologist Alan Grant, paleobotanist Ellie Sattler, chaos theorist Ian Malcolm, and his investors’ attorney Donald Gennaro to perform the inspection. The group meets a Brachiosaurus when they set off into the park. At the park, they learn that InGen created the dinosaurs by cloning genetic material found in mosquitoes that fed on dinosaur blood, preserved in Dominican amber. The DNA from these samples was spliced with DNA from frogs to fill in sequence gaps. Only female dinosaurs are created in order to prevent uncontrolled breeding within the park. The team is also shown the enclosure of the Velociraptor, dubbed “raptors”, extremely intelligent, aggressive and ferocious predators.

Production

Michael Crichton originally conceived a screenplay about a graduate student who recreates a dinosaur; he continued to wrestle with his fascination with dinosaurs and cloning until he began writing the novel Jurassic Park.Spielberg learned of the novel in October 1989 while he and Crichton were discussing a screenplay that would become the television series ER. Before the book was published, Crichton demanded a non-negotiable fee of $1.5 million as well as a substantial percentage of the gross. Warner Brothers and Tim Burton, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Richard Donner, and 20th Century Fox and Joe Dante bid for the rights,[ but Universal eventually acquired them in May 1990 for Spielberg.Universal paid Crichton a further $500,000 to adapt his own novel which he had finished by the time Spielberg was filming Hook. Crichton noted that because the book was “fairly long” his script only had about 10–20 percent of the novel’s content; scenes were dropped for budgetary and practical reasons. After completing Hook, Spielberg wanted to film Schindler’s List. Music Corporation of America president Sid Sheinberg gave a green light to the film on one condition: that Spielberg make Jurassic Park first. Spielberg later said, “He knew that once I had directed Schindler I wouldn’t be able to do Jurassic Park.” At the time, MCA was the owner of Universal Pictures.

Distribution

Universal spent $65 million on the marketing campaign for Jurassic Park, making deals with 100 companies to market 1,000 products. These included three Jurassic Park video games by Sega and Ocean Software, a toy line by Kenner that was distributed by Hasbro, and a novelization aimed at young children. The released soundtrack included unused material. Trailers for the film only gave fleeting glimpses of the dinosaurs, a tactic journalist Josh Horowitz described as “that old Spielberg axiom of never revealing too much” when Spielberg and director Michael Bay did the same for their production of Transformers in 2007. The film was marketed with the tagline “An Adventure 65 Million Years In The Making.” This was a joke Spielberg made on set about the genuine, millions of years old mosquito in amber used for Hammond’s walking stick.

Reception

Commercial

Jurassic Park became the most financially successful film released worldwide as of that time, beating Spielberg’s E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial which previously held the title, though it did not top E.T. in North America. The film opened with $47 million in its first weekend and had grossed $81.7 million by its first week. The film stayed at number one for three weeks and eventually grossed $357 million in the U.S. and Canada. The film also did very well in international markets, breaking opening records in the United Kingdom, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, and Taiwan. Spielberg earned over $250 million from the film. Jurassic Park’s worldwide gross was topped five years later by James Cameron’s Titanic.

Legacy

The American Film Institute named Jurassic Park the 35th most thrilling film of all time on June 13, 2001, and Bravo chose the scene where Lex and Tim are stalked by two Raptors in the kitchen as the 95th scariest of all time in 2005.On Empire magazine’s fifteenth anniversary in 2004, it judged Jurassic Park the sixth most influential film of the magazine’s lifetime. On Film Review’s fifty-fifth anniversary in 2005, it declared the film to be one of the five most important in the magazine’s lifetime.In 2006, IGN ranked Jurassic Park as the 19th greatest film franchise of all time.

JAWS 5 – Resurface (Trailer 2010)

[media id=133 width=500 height=400]

Jaws is a 1975 American horror/thriller film directed by Steven Spielberg and based on Peter Benchley’s best-selling novel. The police chief of Amity Island, a fictional summer resort town, tries to protect beachgoers from a giant great white shark by closing the beach, only to be overruled by the town council, which wants the beach to remain open to draw a profit from tourists during the summer season. After several attacks, the police chief enlists the help of a marine biologist and a professional shark hunter. Roy Scheider stars as police chief Martin Brody, Richard Dreyfuss as marine biologist Matt Hooper, Robert Shaw as shark hunter Quint, and Lorraine Gary as Brody’s wife Ellen.

Plot

The film begins at a late night beach party on Amity Island, from which a young woman (Susan Backlinie) leaves to go skinny dipping. She dives into the water, where she is suddenly jerked around and then pulled under by an unseen force. The next morning, Amity’s new police chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) is notified that Chrissie is missing. Brody and his deputy Len Hendricks (Jeffrey Kramer) find her mutilated remains washed up on the shore. The medical examiner informs Brody that the victim’s death was due to a shark attack. Brody heads out to close the beaches, but is intercepted and overruled by the town mayor Larry Vaughn (Murray Hamilton), who fears that reports of a shark attack will ruin the summer tourist season which is the town’s major source of income. The medical examiner says he was wrong about a shark attack and tells Brody that it was a boating accident. Brody reluctantly goes along with this.

A short time later, a young boy named Alex is attacked and killed brutaly by a shark while swimming off a crowded beach on an inflatable raft. His mother places a $3,000 bounty on the animal, sparking an amateur shark hunting frenzy and attracting the attention of local professional shark hunter Quint (Robert Shaw). Quint interrupts a town meeting to offer his services; his demand for $10,000 is taken “under advisement”. Brought in by Brody, ichthyologist Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) conducts an autopsy on Chrissie’s remains and concludes she was killed by a shark.

Soon after a large tiger shark is caught by a group of novice fishermen, leading the town to believe the problem is solved, but an unconvinced Hooper asks to examine the contents of the shark’s stomach. Because Vaughn refuses to make the “operation” public, Brody and Hooper return after dark and learn that the dead shark does not contain human remains, just fish and garbage. Scouting aboard Hooper’s state-of-the-art boat, they come across the half-sunken wreckage of local fisherman Ben Gardner’s boat. Hooper dons a wetsuit and while exploring the vessel underwater discovers Gardner’s severed head. Despite evidence of the shark’s presence, Vaughn still refuses to close the beach. By the Fourth of July the beaches are covered in tourists. While a prank triggers a false alarm and draws off the authorities’ attention, the real shark enters an estuary, kills a man, and nearly takes the life of Brody’s oldest son Michael. Brody forces a stunned Vaughn to hire Quint. Brody and Hooper join the hunter on his fishing boat, the Orca, and the trio set out to kill the man-eater.

At sea, Brody is given the task of laying a chum line, while Quint uses deep-sea fishing tackle to try to hook the shark. Quint hooks an unseen fish, but Hooper suggests that it isn’t a shark, and the two grow increasingly agitated with one another. As Brody continues chumming, the enormous shark suddenly looms up behind the boat. After a horrified Brody announces its presence (“You’re gonna need a bigger boat!”), Quint and Hooper watch the great white circle the Orca and estimate the new arrival weighs 3 tons (2.7 metric tonnes) and is 25 feet (8m) long. Quint harpoons the shark with a line attached to a flotation barrel, designed to prevent the shark from being able to submerge as well as to track it on the surface, but the shark pulls the barrel under and disappears.

Night falls without another sighting, so the men retire to the boat’s cabin, where Quint tells of his experience with sharks as a survivor of the World War II sinking of the USS Indianapolis. The shark reappears, damages the boat’s hull, and slips away before the men can harm it. In the morning, while the men make repairs to the engine, a barrel suddenly reappears at the stern. Quint destroys the radio to prevent Brody from calling the Coast Guard for help. The shark attacks again, and after a long, hard chase, Quint harpoons it to another barrel. The men tie the barrels to the stern; but the shark drags the boat backwards, forcing water onto the deck and into the engine, flooding it. Quint harpoons it again, attaching three barrels in all to the shark, while the animal continues to tow them. Quint is about to cut the ropes with his machete when the cleats are pulled off the stern. The shark continues to attack the boat and Quint powers towards shore with the shark in pursuit, hoping to draw the animal into shallow waters, where it will be beached and drowned. In his Ahab-like obsession to kill the shark, Quint overtaxes Orca’s damaged engine, causing it to seize.

Production

Richard D. Zanuck and David Brown, producers at Universal Pictures, heard about Peter Benchley’s novel at identical times at different locations. Brown heard about it in the fiction department of Cosmopolitan, a lifestyle magazine then edited by his wife, Helen Gurley Brown. A small card gave a detailed description of the plot, concluding with the comment “might make a good movie”.[4] The producers each read it overnight and agreed the next morning that it was “the most exciting thing that they had ever read” and that, although they were unsure how they would accomplish it, they wanted to produce the film.[5] Brown says that had they read the book twice they would have never have made the film because of the difficulties in executing some of the sequences.[4] They purchased the film rights to Benchley’s novel in 1973 for approximately $175,000.

Lucas, Spielberg richest of Hollywood rich men

Lucas, Spielberg richest of Hollywood rich men

NEW YORK –  july 16 – “Star Wars” creator George Lucas topped a list of Hollywood’s highest male earners on Wednesday, making an estimated $170 million (103.4 million pounds) in a year that saw the release of his fourth, blockbuster Indiana Jones movie.

Steven Spielberg, who directed “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”, took second place after making about $150 million between June 2008 and June 2009, according to Forbes.com.

Despite mixed reviews, the movie made $786 million at box offices worldwide.

The Forbes list was dominated by men behind the camera rather than screen stars, with movie and TV producer Jerry Bruckheimer — the man behind hit series like “CSI”, “The Amazing Race” and “Cold Case” listed as the third biggest male earner with an estimated $100 million.

“In Hollywood the stars get their pictures on the covers of magazines and designers ply them with free clothes, but producers earn the big bucks,” the Forbes.com website said.

Forbes.com compiled the high-earning list by looking at producers, actors, writers, musicians and television personalities in the industry and then talking to Hollywood insiders to estimate earnings over the past 12 months.

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld came fourth in the list with $85 million, thanks largely to syndication rights for his TV comedy creation “Seinfeld” 10 years after it ended, and a series of Microsoft ads.

In fifth place, television psychologist Dr. Phil McGraw proved that advice pays, with his TV shows, books and speeches helping him earn about $80 million last year.

“American Idol” judge and record producer Simon Cowell raked in around $75 million, along with TV producer Dick Wolf and movie maker Tyler Perry.
