Jurassic Park 3D: Excitement and Extinction

Are dinosaurs scarier in 3-D? Some censors think so. When members of the Australian Classification Board saw the 3-D conversion of Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park, they changed its rating from the original PG to a slightly sterner M - their equivalent of PG-13, which is the movie's rating in the U.S. The Board's decision was in synch with Spielberg's; in 1993 he said, "I do think this movie is inappropriate for children under 13." An Aussie studio exec scrambled to find a marketing angle in the more restrictive designation for JP3D.

Hollywood legend Spielberg to head Cannes jury

Steven Spielberg, named head of the Cannes Film Festival jury Wednesday, is a Hollywood legend and one of modern cinema's most influential filmmakers -- even if his awards glory has faded of late. The 66-year-old was named to the prestigious post days after his second disappointing awards season in two years, with his top-tipped drama "Lincoln" going home with only two Oscars out of 12 nominations last weekend. So it will come as a welcome honor to be selected to help choose this year's Palme d'Or at the world's top film festival, to be held on the French Rivieria May 15-26.
