Jurassic Park is a wondrous film. The music, the visuals, the ideas — all of it comes together to make something totally striking and memorable. Not only has it endured for decades, it just keeps going. And a pair of new posters by superstar artist Kilian Eng capture that feeling.
Eng has a style all his own, and we’ve celebrated it several times before. It’s kind of Syd Mead meets H.R. Giger, but with a distinct industrial vibe. He’s used it to great effect for films like Mad Max: Fury Road, Jodorowsky’s Dune, The Terminator and many others. But for these Jurassic Park pieces, he’s lightened up just a bit to capture the film’s awe-inspiring tone. Here are the regular, and variant editions, which were exclusively debuted on iO9.
The good news is that these posters, which were screen printed with 22 and 19 individual colors respectively, now exist. The bad news is, they were privately commissioned for a small group of 15 insanely lucky people. A group that we are not a part of. At least everyone can bask in their beauty.
