Jurassic Park is a 1993 science fiction adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg. It stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum and Richard Attenborough. It is the first installment in the Jurassic Park franchise and is based off the novel of the same name by Michael Crichton. The film's screenplay was written by Crichton and David Koepp.

The film centers around the fictional island of Isla Nublar where John Hammond and the company of InGen have setup a park that hosts cloned dinosaurs.

Jurassic Park was followed by two sequels, The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III. A long awaited fourth sequel, Jurassic World is set for release on June 12, 2015.

Plot

Huge advancements in scientific technology have enabled a mogul to create an island full of living dinosaurs. John Hammond has invited four individuals, along with his two grandchildren, to join him at Jurassic Park. But will everything go to plan? Especially when one of the parks' own workers attempts to steal the dinosaur embryos, and has to shut down critical security systems in the process. It's now a race for survival with dangerous creatures roaming all over the island.
