More on JP3



The Sunday, May 13 New York Times has an article "Sequels and Remakes - Aiming 
to be the Same but, You Know, Different," by Rick Lyman.  Jurassic Park 3 is 
mentioned, along with comments from the animation supervisor.  From the 
article: 

"Initially, animators were scrupulous about creating dinosaurs that were as 
scientifically accurate as possible in height, look and behavior. Now, he said, 
if a certain scene calls for a creature to be bigger or faster or meaner than 
it actually was, scientific slack is cut in the cause of heightened thrills. 
'This time,' he said, 'coolness rules.' "  

There is a 65' tall Spinosaurus (no word on how long it is :-)) and 170 
dinosaur shots in the movie, which opens July 18.
