    SYNOPSIS

    From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg, the Jurassic Park Ultimate Trilogy is one of the most successful film franchises in worldwide box-office history. On a remote tropical island, an amazing living theme park becomes a game of survival for humans foolhardy enough to set foot on it. Meticulously recreated dinosaurs spring to astonishing life as the film's breathtaking special effects and thrilling action sequences keep audiences on the edge of their seats. Each chapter of the history-making saga delivers even more action and spectacular visual effects than its predecessor, as nature's ultimate killing machines once again rule the earth. Almost 20 years after its inception, the Jurassic Park Trilogy remains an unmatched cinematic experience.

    Jurassic Park

    A multimillionaire (Richard Attenborough) unveils a new theme park where visitors can observe dinosaurs cloned using advanced DNA technology. But when an employee tampers with the security system, the dinosaurs escape, forcing the visitors to fight for their survival. Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum and Laura Dern star in this thrilling, action-packed blockbuster from acclaimed director Steven Spielberg and based on the novel by Michael Crichton.

    The Lost World: Jurassic Park

    Four years after Jurassic Park's genetically bred dinosaurs ran amok, multimillionaire John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) shocks chaos theorist Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) by revealing that Hammond has been breeding more beasties at a secret location. Malcolm, his paleontologist ladylove (Julianne Moore) and a wildlife videographer (Vince Vaughn) join an expedition to document the lethal lizards' natural behavior in this action-packed thriller.

    Jurassic Park III

    In need of funds for research, Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) accepts a large sum of money to accompany Paul and Amanda Kirby(William H. Macy and Tea Leoni) on an aerial tour of the infamous Isla Sorna. It isn't long before all hell breaks loose and the stranded wayfarers must fight for survival as a host of new -- and even more deadly -- dinosaurs try to make snacks of them.Laura Dern, Michael Jeter, Alessandro Nivola and Trevor Morgan co-star.

    I will probably use the same strategy I used for Back to the Future and The Magnificent Seven, and wait until the set drops to around the price of a single film release. I do not care for the sequel films for any of these sets, but will sacrifice a little shelf space for a larger box once the price drops to that of a single movie.

    Having titles like this come to Blu-ray is definitely good for the format and any Spielberg movies coming to Blu-ray is cool but these are two of my least favorite of his movies (the one he didn't direct is easily my favorite of the series). My guess is that this will be on sale at some point during the holidays so I'll hold off until then.

    I hope they do something about the green tint in the first movie.








    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    I'm in!

    I like all three films...but seeing as how I just got the BTTF Trilogy for $14.99...it'll be hard to spend too much more on this particular set.

    Some more...because I like this trilogy more. But I'll still be looking for a deal.


    What a nice year for releases this is turning out to be. Some exciting stuff.

    Definite purchase for me. I'm not too crazy about the second film - it feels oddly out of place, don't know why. The third one is loads of fun.

    I enjoyed 2-3 on varying levels, so if the street date price is right, I'll buy this set.

    I enjoyed them all. And despite people who think otherwise, the special effects from the first one still work for me just fine.. :) I will be eager to see the creatures in (non-cable) HD..

    Great news, but I'll probably be waiting until the price drops or until there is a single film release of the original. I love the first film, but could live without the others.

    Loved the first one and really liked the third one. Didn't like some of the characters in the second one and that ending seemed desperate to me.

    I just picked up the Back to the Future set for $15, in a standard 3-disc case with no digital copy discs. I'll pay more for the Jurassic Park movies, but I'm prepared to wait.

    Very excited about this release, but with all of these

    Blu-ray boxed sets being introduced, I am not rushing

    out to buy them (Lord of the Rings included)


    I am going to wait for Black Friday or Amazon Gold

    Box deals.

    I'll buy the "no junk" version, put the Blu-rays into a three-disk case and, of course, send the digital copies to the landfill, though they might make nifty-looking coasters!

    As much as I'd love to say I'm gonna wait, I probably won't. Especially if the swag version comes in cheap. Something about the bookend/maquette entices me right now.

    It's due to Julianna Moore being insanely hot she distracts from the dino action.... :P


    I'll buy this eventually. Not with that stupid looking statue though. It looks like a cheap toy in the picture.

    Same here.

    I loved all 3 JP films and will get these. Same with the LotR trilogy. I'm in no hurry though and will wait for pricing on this set to decided if it's worthy of per-order, the LotR's can wait until a deal can be found.
