Richard Attenborough Robert Downey Jr. Chaplin
An actor, director, producer and much more, Lord Richard Attenborough had the kind of expansive career that found him both spoofed by Monty Python and honored with the title of Lord. His talents were such that his work touched entirely different generations of cinemalovers, with movies as diverse as "Jurassic Park," "Gandhi" and "Oh! What A Lovely War" each distinctly marking unique moments in the filmmaker's career. Sadly, the world lost Attenborough after he passed away this weekend at the age of 90, and while are many entry points into his filmography, it might be wise to start at what is arguably his most acclaimed and well known picture.

Jurassic Park
This week marks the 20th (!) anniversary of "Jurassic Park," Steven Spielberg's adaptation of the Michael Crichton best-seller that would go on to become (at the time) the highest grossing movie of all time and a true technological breakthrough that would influence the way movies are made and exhibited to this very day (it was the first movie with a fully digital theatrical soundtrack). The movie is so ingrained in the hearts and minds of a certain generation that the 3D rerelease felt redundant – there are some of us who could easily act out every moment from the movie from memory. It's hard to even imagine but there were several, wildly different variations on "Jurassic Park" that almost made it to the screen, and we're here to dig those up like a long forgotten mosquito inside chunk of amber, dust them off, use the blood from inside the mosquito, and resurrect these versions of "Jurassic Park." Welcome to the "Jurassic Park" you've never seen.

A focus on professional procedure has always proved strong in Martin Scorsese's work, from Robert De Niro's arduous training in “Raging Bull” to Henry Hill's daily paranoia in “Goodfellas,” so it should come as no surprise that the master director has signed on to produce a story involving the creation of one of the world's most respected and revered car brands.
