The National Film Registry is turning 30, and to celebrate they're bringing in a new crop of films to be inducted into the ranks before year's end.
Amongst the 25 new inductees are the 1993 Steven Spielberg blockbuster Jurassic Park, The Shining, Brokeback Mountain and Broadcast News respectively.
The library selects movies for preservation because of their cultural, historic and artist importance. The registry’s total number of films is now 750.
The new inductees were announced Wednesday morning in Los Angeles.
Jurassic Park, and it's for sequels, are big favorites here at Infinite Earths. So, we're more than a little extracted to see this 90's classic joining the National Film Registry - even though we're more than a little surprised to learn that the Steven Spielberg classic isn't already within its ranks!
Jurassic Park was released in June of 1993, and is credited with changing the face of modern cinema - especially in the field of special effects. Starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Sir Richard Attenborough, Bob Peck, Wayne Knight and Samuel L. Jackson, the film currently ranks as one of the highest-grossing films of all time with $1.03-Billion worldwide.
