Universal City, California, August 24, 2015 – Shattering records globally, Jurassic World crushed the opening-weekend box-office, scoring the highest domestic, international and worldwide openings of all time.  The film has taken in more than $1.6 billion globally to become the third-highest grossing film in history.  Now fans can experience the thrill and awe when Jurassic World arrives on Digital HD on October 1, 2015 and on 3-D Blu-ray™, Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand on October 20, 2015, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.  More than two decades since Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park was released, fans of the original films and new moviegoers alike can witness the story come full circle as the park that was only a promise comes to life.
 
Now, 22 years later, an even bigger and enormously popular attraction has risen on Isla Nubar: Jurassic World. To keep attendance high, the park operators introduce a new, genetically modified hybrid creature called Indominus Rex. Bigger, stronger and far more intelligent than any dinosaur that ever walked the earth; the secretive new breed also proves more dangerous than anyone ever anticipated. Executive-produced by franchise creator Steven Spielberg and directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed), Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy, “Parks and Recreation”) as Owen Grady, the park’s ex-military expert in animal behavior, and Bryce Dallas Howard (The Help, The Twilight Saga), as Claire Dearing, Jurassic World’s driven careerist, teaming up to save the park’s tourists when chaos erupts. 
 
Vincent D’Onofrio (Men in Black, “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”), Jake Johnson (TV’s “New Girl,” Let’s Be Cops”), Nick Robinson (“Melissa and Joey”), Ty Simpkins (Insidious series) BD Wong (Jurassic Park, “Law & Order: SVU”), Judy Greer (Ant-Man) and Irrfan Khan (Life of Pi) also star in the blockbuster adventure that will delight fans of the original as much as it thrills a new generation of viewers.  
 
BONUS FEATURES EXCLUSIVE TO BLU-RAYTM: 
WELCOME TO JURASSIC WORLD:  An in-depth take on the creation, look and feel of Jurassic World.  Director Colin Trevorrow and Steven Spielberg discuss how the idea of the film came together and how the casting was decided with actors’ commentary on their roles and filming locations.  
JURASSIC WORLD: ALL-ACCESS PASS:  Chris Pratt and Director Colin Trevorrow discuss key moments in the film, supported by behind-the-scenes footage and VFX breakdowns.

The Jurassic World theme park lets guests experience the thrill of witnessing actual dinosaurs, but something ferocious lurks behind the park’s attractions – a genetically modified dinosaur with savage capabilities.  When the massive creature escapes, chaos erupts across the island.  Now it’s up to Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) to save the park’s tourists from an all-out prehistoric assault.

I did not see this in theatres; I meant to, but the summer simply got away from me, and I want to see it in 3D.


I finally got a copy of the converted-to-3D Jurassic Park, and I was VERY impressed with that conversion.


Hopefully this uber-popular movie will look just as good on 3D Blu-ray as the original.

Interesting that it's a 2.00:1 aspect ratio, that's unusual for films shot today, i'm guessing 2.00:1 is what the effects were done at, same as Titanic although they matted that to 2.35:1 and in the 3D 1.78:1 edition it loses some image info whenever an effects scene is onscreen.

Apparently the director had originally wanted shoot this in 2.35 but was overuled by Spielberg who wanted it done in 1.85. So a compromise was reached by both, which resulted in the 2.00 ratio.

Bought this on 3D Blu-ray.


Did not make it past the first 30 minutes.


I don't know if it was the mood I was in, or this movie just came off as being absolutely "silly."


I am not a prude by any means, but even the sexual innuendos that were introduced into the relationship of the main adult characters was unnecessary.


Just doesn't even remotely approach the creativity of the original film.


The 3D, being unconverted (like what isn't) was just mildly good.

Ron,


That's too bad as I thought this was a pretty good entertaining film. Perhaps, you need to give it another try when you're in a more receptive mood.

Mine came today, but I was busy doing other things, and I'm also still catching up with TV shows I missed last week, so I don't see getting to this until the weekend.

Just finished watching Jurassic World in 2D, will watch it in 3D at next viewing. Excellent quality, picture and sound.


One of the most enjoyable films I've seen this year.

Watched it. Much prefer this one to the original film, which I am in the minority, and dislike.. The 3D neither add nor detracts from the film, but I love 3D, and this film displays wonderful, natural depth, which maintaining rich, vibrant colors. Very good disc. Enjoyable film.

The 3D seemed pretty natural for me. It was just enough to give good depth. The thing for me is that it was pretty comfortable watching for my eyes. Most 3D movies with strong depth/pop outs makes my eyes water and strain; this movie did not do that.


The movie and the 3D was pretty enjoyable for me.

Great way to spend an evening! The 3D really seemed well done to these eyes and I really enjoyed the story. Ron, you should definitely give it another go - perhaps you just had an off night.

I may have. I will definitely give it another go this weekend and report back.

There's a subtext to this film that I will not spoil which made it very enjoyable to me.
Go for it - I'm curious what it is...

This was my favorite movie of the summer. Just a FUN time. Jurassic Park came out when I was 15, which is a perfect age for it. This brought me right back to that summer. Could have been made great by not having the D'onofiro subplot...

Of course, that sets up the sequel which is going to happen if not this subplot than some other one for the same reason.

The underlying theme of the film seems to be how everything has to be bigger and more exciting, much like sequels in Hollywood franchises, to the point where we lose sight of what made the originals so great in the first place. Seems to be Colin Trevorrow commenting on how he did this tiny sci-fi themed indie and is suddenly thrust into the Hollywood blockbuster machine, wondering how he got there.

Yeah I agree about D'Onofrio, the whole wanting to weaponize the animal/technology aspect has been done to death (and really, don't we already have better technology than raptors). I don't get why the makers of these types of movies seemingly always feel a human villain is needed (I guess maybe we're supposed to feel elated when that person is horrible killed by whatever the monster is in a given film)

I guess it's possible, but I would imagine the premise would be fairly easy to establish in the sequel without the need to set it up via a fairly superfluous subplot in the previous movie
