(Sam Neill heads the cast list)

Revisit the spectacle of Jurassic Park when it is screened on M-Net Movies Showcase Dstv Channel 108 on October 10 at 20h00.

Cloning is real. We might not yet have the know-how to recreate monstrous animals from the Jurassic period with scraps of ancient DNA, but it’s within the realm of possibility in the future. Scary. This surely helped to make the film the biggest ever box office hit before Titanic came along.

In the wake of astounding scientific advances, dinosaurs have been brought to life and are held captive as theme park attractions, but chaos erupts when a power failure allows them to break out. The humans are no longer in charge. They are on the run.

Directed by Steven Spielberg in 1993, the film stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum.

The Lost World: Jurassic Park (October 17) and Jurassic Park III (October 24) will be presented on the same channel at the same time.
