Universal Pictures, Amblin Entertainment and IGN have teamed up to bring JURASSIC PARK to IGN’s Watch From Home Theater – a weekly live show where some of your favorite IGN personalities are united with special celebrity guests to have a digital movie night together with you, watching some of their favorite films of all time.
This coming Thursday, April 23rd at 5 p.m. PT, they’ll be watching Steven Spielberg’s iconic and ultimate thrill ride – JURASSIC PARK – with special guest and original cast member Joseph Mazzello, who played Tim Murphy. Since his breakout role as the dinosaur-loving preteen grandson of John Hammond, Mazzello has gone on to star in The Pacific, The Social Network, G.I. Joe: Retaliation and, most recently, as Queen bassist John Deacon in the Academy Award-winning Bohemian Rhapsody.
“While we all continue to sit tight and wait for these scary and uncertain times to eventually be behind us, my favorite way to escape the worry and pass the time has been by watching classic films, and in my completely unbiased opinion, JURASSIC PARK is one of the all-time greats,” says Mazzello. “I can’t wait to join together with other fans to celebrate this iconic film and share the stories, insight, and fond and funny memories I collected while playing ‘Tim Murphy.’ It’s gonna be a blast!”
Featuring Academy Award-winning visual effects and groundbreaking filmmaking that has been hailed as “a triumph of special effects artistry” (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times), this epic film is sheer movie-making magic that was 65 million years in the making. JURASSIC PARK takes you to an amazing theme park on a remote island where dinosaurs once again roam the earth and five people must battle to survive among the prehistoric predators. Starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum and Richard Attenborough, discover the breathtaking adventure you will want to experience again and again.
