This franchise began with the novel Jurassic Park written by science fiction great Michael Crichton, released in 1990. With film production bringing almost immediately, Steven Spielberg and musician John Williams created the generation defining film we all know and love. All of this is owed to the drive of fictional billionaire John Hammond. CEO of the genetics company InGen, he creates genetic clones of fifteen extinct species of dinosaur on a remote island of Costa Rica. In the first installment in the franchise, he invites three experts to the Island of Nublar to sign off on the opening of the park. Thee initial group of tourists include world renowned paleontologist Alan Grant, paleobotanist Ellie Sattler, mathematician Ian Malcolm, investment attorney Donald Gennaro and his two grandchildren Tim and Lex. With the talented Sam Neill playing the protagonist along side Laura Dean and Jeff Goldbloom, this star studded cast created a legendary group that would define each actors career. Venturing to this island with her partner and fellow archaeologist Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler is separated from the group after finding an ailing triceratops. After a T-Rex attacks the group, she and a hired gun leave to find Alan and the two children. Working with the remaining employees left alive in the facility, she reboots the Jurassic Park System and restores the security locks and electric fences. After the catastrophic incidents of the T-Rex attack and multiple instances of dinosaurs escaping their enclosures, all three experts decline in giving their blessing on the park and David Hammond agrees to abandon his work and close the park.
