From Page to Screen: Jurassic Park Was a Book, Who Knew?

We’ve all had those moments when our beloved books get turned into the latest popular movies, we go in with high expectations and then scratch our heads when the filmmakers took out our favourite scenes, or changed others completely.

If you’ve ever wondered why some of these decisions were made, or have been too lazy to read the book then Cinefix’s What’s The Difference was made for you. A YouTube series designed to highlights the difference between some of your favourite films and their lesser known novels, such as Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park.

Beloved by just about everyone and revolutionising the modern blockbuster, Jurassic Park could have been a very different film if it had stuck closer to the book.

It’s a fun series that will undoubtedly drag you down the rabbit hole, until you’re wondering how you’ve been at your computer for six hours.
