I only have the first one on the 3D blu release and III on blu. I actually enjoyed World and Fallen Kingdom. Wasn't crazy about Dominion (though I still like it a lot more than Lost World), but when they inevitably come out with a six-film 4K set, I'll probably pick that up.

Yup, I got notified early this morning from the retailer I preordered it from. Very odd!
+1
Actually received an email from Universal

& from the retailer. Oddly the same retailer didn't make me jump through hoops to "approve" a new release date as they usually do.

VUDU has the extended version in 4K UHD. iTunes has the extended version in HD.
iTunes seems to "drop the ball" often.

Just picked this up. Does the extra 14 minutes make it better? I have not heard a lot of positive things about this. One poster said it was better than Lost World which is not exactly high praise...

Sadly its not. I read at another forum for that answer. they would need to rewrite the script to make it better. that was a stinker. Jurassic Park the original was the only good one.

I received this in the this evening. I haven't had the time to watch but it has a "restored" Prologue ...

and I'm assuming it's not just "slates"

I always enjoyed "Lost World". It's got definite flaws but it comes with an awful lot of good action.

"JP3" is a step down but still delivers excitement.

"World" is pretty good, but "Kingdom" is kinda meh.

Didn't much care for "Dominion" theatrically. Will see if I change my mind on Blu-ray.

I received my 4K steelbook from Target yesterday and watched the film for the first time last night, opting for the extended edition. While it has MANY flaws, the most glaring being the inordinately long runtime, I enjoyed it far more than I thought I would. It was great seeing Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum revisit their characters, and I'd say that was the highlight of the movie for me. Nostalgia went a long way in making me forget the stuff that wasn't so good.

As Robert Harris points out in his A Few Words About... post, this is a reference 4K disc. It looks simply phenomenal on my 65" OLED.

Jurassic World Dominion just arrived today! Now my Jurassic collection is now currently complete. Some didn't care for the latest addition to Jurassic but I actually did enjoy the mix of Jurassic Park and Jurassic World.

I did a pretty detailed overview of the changes for my review.

Here it is - spoilerized for your protection!

The disc comes with both the film’s theatrical cut (2:26:57) as well as an Extended Edition (2:40:40). How do the two differ?

The biggest single change comes from a three-minute, 20-second prologue that goes back millions of years to show dinosaurs in their original habitat. This allows us to view the mosquito that sampled the blood of a T Rex.

This leads into a modern-day sequence in which we see hunters track and try to take down a creature. This then moves a scene in which an aquatic dino attacks a fishing boat until after we see a news report.

From there the two remain identical until Extended hits about 14:15, at which point Owen and friends meet some poachers. This goes for about two minutes, and then soon thereafter, we see minor extensions to the scene in which Maisie goes into town.

Not long after this we see hunters as they try to kill raptors. Theatrical hints at this, as it shows Owen’s reaction to the gunfire, but it doesn’t show the actual hunters.

The campfire discussion of Maisie’s development gets a minor extension. The sequence in which Ellie investigates the giant locust receives another 50 seconds of screen time.

Alan’s introduction also gets a bit more time, as he deals with some young women unimpressed by dinosaurs. The opening meeting between Sattler and Grant also receives a smidgen more space.

That gets us to around 34 minutes into Extended, at which point we’ve seen about eight minutes of the added 14 minutes. Nothing changes until about 58:30, at which time Kayla sells a small dino to a dude who uses the critter in a cockfighting-type situation.

Expect a few seconds of extra violence as Owen confronts the poacher around 1:04:20. Minor slivers of added mayhem come from the subject chase as well, though none of these last more than a couple seconds each.

At 1:13:31, we see Owen and Claire check on each other after their escape, and this goes about 40 seconds. The two versions stay identical until Extended gets to 1:40:32, at which time we see the “Hyperloop” vehicle with Ellie/Alan/Maisie stop and leave them in the amber mine in an elongated bit.

Their entrance to this domain spans about 75 seconds and reorganizes shots that depict Dodgson’s involvement. 1:48:10 starts a two and a half minute piece in which Dodgson deletes files for nefarious motives, and Ramsay attempts – unsuccessfully – to get him to do the right thing.

When the flaming locusts escape, we see a tad more of their departure. And that becomes the last change made for Extended, as the rest of the film matches Theatrical.

Does one version work better than the other? Not really.

That doesn’t mean I don’t like some of the additions. In particular, I feel happy to see more of the characters from Park.
Otherwise, I can’t find much here that seems beneficial, and some of the additions create narrative problems. For example, a reference Owen makes to the poacher leader recognizing him makes no sense in Extended since we already saw the two interact.

The prehistoric prologue feels entirely superfluous. We don’t need to see a mosquito suck blood from a dino, as we know that concept already.

At 147 minutes, Theatrical already offered the longest Jurassic film to date – and by nearly 20 minutes. None of its predecessors went past the 129 minutes of Lost World.

As such, the Theatrical Dominion already stretched audience patience, so an extra 14 minutes seems like a difficult proposition. If the Extended managed to bring consistent value to the added bits, I could recommend it, but a lot of this footage feels fairly gratuitous.

I feel happy that we get the option to watch the Extended cut. However, even with its flaws, I’d take Theatrical instead, just because it feels tighter.

Superfluous? Sure. But an extra 3 minutes and 20 seconds of some of the best dino CGI ever created to date makes it work for me. And really, when you're talking about a 2-hour and 27-minute movie anyway, is an extra 14 minutes really that much of a bother? I don't think so. ;)
