Jurassic Park, the feature film, cost around $63 million in 1993 to make. But thanks to some number crunching by the people at Fandango Movieclips, we now have a rough idea of how much money we would need to make a Jurassic Park in the real world – $23 billion. And they’ve shown their work in reaching that figure in a new video recently released online.
Assuming that genetic reconstruction of extinct dinosaur species is possible, the rest of that $23 billion goes to stuff like private islands to house the dinosaurs, construction, staff, research and development, and other expected expenses. I would imagine the insurance premiums alone would also be pretty expensive.
