Jurassic Park: 10 things you might have missed

Paul Bullock Aug 3, 2017

You may have seen Jurassic Park a dozen times, but there loads of details that are easy to miss. Details like these...

I don't remember much of the actual movie from the T. rex attack on because I spent it with my arms wrapped around my dad's neck staring at the back of the theater.

And yet, despite traumatizing my 4-year-old self, "Jurassic Park" has since managed to become one of my favorite movies (and books) of all time. In honor of this weekend's 3D re-release, I've cobbled together seven facts about the film. Read on, dinosaur aficionados!
