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. Gaining his fortune from starting exotic theme parks around the globe, be used his corporate connections with the genetics company InGen to create a new amusement park like none other. Leasing a series of islands from the Costa Rican government he “spares no expense” in building a park filled with extinct dinosaurs. 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 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. 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.
He returns in the second installment of the original film trilogy, titled Jurassic Park: The Lost World. Here he convinces a small crew to create a wildlife documentary of the species that have taken over the Island of Sorna. Located on a different island than the first movie, this location was used as the initial cloning and maturing facility before the dinosaurs were transported to Island Nublar to be showcased.
Creating an John Hammond costume is relatively simple. There is also the possibility for numerous ways to personalize his look as he ultimately created all of the merchandize that goes along with the Jurassic Park franchise.
