FILMCLUB: Out in Cinemas – Jurassic Park 3d & The Mortal Instruments
Our friends at FILMCLUB have been looking at the coolest films out in cinemas right now…
Jurrassic Park 3D (PG, 1993)
Director: Steven Spielberg
Cast: Richard Attenborough, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern
A research organisation has worked out how to clone dinosaurs from long dormant DNA – and the boss has set up a zoo on a remote island to display the living results.
He invites a group of scientific experts and a lawyer down to this out-of-the-way location to assure them of the project’s safety. However, the beasts get free – and soon they’re running amok in director Steven Spielberg’s eye-popping creature-feature which is, at times, truly terrifying – largely down to a star turn from the magnificent Tyrannosaurus Rex!

The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones (12A, 2013)

This one’s for fans Twilight and The Hunger Games. It’s an adpatation of Cassandra Clare’s fantasy adventure best-seller and stars Lily Collins as a New Yorker who realises she’s not the average teenager she’d thought after she starts to see symbols and people that nobody else can.
Dark forces close in, convinced that she’s the key for locating The Mortal Cup, with dangerous powers that could wreak havoc in the wrong hands.
Vampires, werewolves, warlocks and demons all figure in this epic-length tale of a conflicted heroine.
