    Discuss: Are 3D Re-Releases For 'Titanic' & 'Jurassic Park' Just The Tip Of The Nostalgia Iceberg?

    Yesterday, Universal announced that they'd shifted their hopeful Tom Cruise blockbuster "Oblivion" into April, to make way for a prime, heart-of summer slot for a movie that will be twenty years old in 2013 -- a 3D re-jig of Steven Spielberg's "Jurassic Park," the one-time biggest hits of all time. ...

    Weekend Box Office: 'The Vow' And 'Safe House' Lead Four $20 Million+ Debuts
