‘Jurassic Park’ to Air on NBCU Nets Ahead of ‘Jurassic World’ Release

Steven Spielberg and Chris Pratt will host a special presentation of “Jurassic Park” next week as part of an effort by NBCUniversal Networks to promote followup pic “Jurassic World.”

A broadcast of the original 1993 blockbuster will first air next Friday (June 5) on NBC, followed the next night by a “roadblock” presentation on Bravo, Syfy, USA Network, E! and a Spanish-language version on NBC Universo.

Spielberg and Pratt, the star of Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s “Jurassic World,” will share their respective memories of “Jurassic Park.” They will also introduce a two-minute, exclusive sneak preview of “Jurassic World,” which arrives in theaters on June 12.

The story of  Spielberg’s original comes full circle as the park that was only a promise comes to life. “Jurassic World” features a fully operational luxury resort off the coast of Costa Rica, where 20,000 guests explore the living prehistoric marvels — of every shape and size — and interact with them. When the massive Indominus rex stages an escape and disappears into the jungle, order turns to mayhem and guests turn into prey.

The film stars Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Omar Sy, BD Wong and Irrfan Khan. The 3D epic action-adventure is directed by Colin Trevorrow. The screenplay is by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver and Derek Connolly & Trevorrow, and the story is by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver, based on characters created by Michael Crichton. Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley are producers.
