Gear up for a plethora of re-releases soon coming to your local theater. A re-release is a movie that was very successful financially and usually critically, movies that are generally loved by the masses, that are brought back to theaters for another run. Star Wars and ET had them early and it was announced today that 1993's Jurassic Park will be getting a 3D re-release on July 19, 2013.
This comes on the heels of Titanic, the #1 movie for 12 years, which is docking in for a 3D re-release next month. Disney already granted us with re-releases of Toy Story 1 and 2, Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and upcoming is Finding Nemo on September 14th, Monsters Inc on January 18, 2013, and Little Mermaid September 13, 2013.
And don't forget Star Wars Episode 1; the other 5 could likely be getting 3D re-releases as well. Even though American 3D shares have dropped, studios are still finding interests in 3D releases. Catch Titanic's 2D/3D re-release April 4th; a few days before the 100th anniversary, even if you already have it recorded on DVR.
