U dates 3D re-release of ‘Jurassic Park’

Also moves 'Oblivion' up to April 26, 2013

Universal Pictures has slated a 3D re-release of “Jurassic Park” for July 19, 2013, and moved up the release date of the Tom Cruise starrer “Oblivion” to April 26, 2013.

“Oblivion” was initially set to bow July 10. U’s move mirrors what the studio did with “Fast Five” — slating a tentpole prior to the start of summer.

Helmed by Joseph Kosinski, “Oblivion” also stars Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Risenborough and Morgan Freeman. Story follows a soldier stationed on Earth, the surface of which has been destroyed by aliens. When he discovers a mysterious woman in a crash-landed pod, it sets off a chain of events that cause him to question everything.

With “Jurassic Park,” Universal follows the trend of studios converting 2D pics to 3D and re-releasing them, such as Disney with its animated classics and, most recently, “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace” from Fox.
