The Gold Box spotlight deal of the day over at Amazon today is the Jurassic Park CollectionBlu-Ray Edition for only $24.99 (that’s 72% off the list price).
This Blu-ray collection includes all four films of the series – Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III, and the recent release Jurassic World — and each comes with its own set of bonus features. This Blu-ray edition also includes the 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD versions of each movie.
Colin Trevorrow is going to be a name you’ll be hearing a lot more of in the coming years. Though the filmmaker does have a few directing credits to his name, he got his first major recognition for his Sundance comedy hit, Safety [Not Guaranteed]. After that, he made the leap from small indie film to Jurassic World, starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, and more. The film, which takes place 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, sees a fully functioning park complete with rides, interactive experiences, and family friendly shows. But behind the scenes, there is a villainous plan that will put the park and everyone in it, in real danger.
We were given a special phone interview with director Colin Trevorrow, where we got to talk about Jurassic World, making that jump from an indie film to a major blockbuster, the threat that social media and internet blogging leaks present to a film production, practical effects vs CG, Star Wars, and much more.
Jurassic World is shaping up to be one of this summer’s most promising big-screen blockbusters, but how exactly will the fourth installment in the franchise birthed by Steven Spielberg‘s groundbreaking 1993 smash dinosaur adventure Jurassic Park address the events of the lackluster (but fun in their own way) sequels The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997) and Jurassic Park III (2001)? Short answer: it won’t.
According to a recent interview with Yahoo! Movies, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow claims that his entry in the series won’t acknowledge the second and third movies. In the world of Jurassic World, they never even happened.
This week, Amazon has the Jurassic Park Trilogy Blu-Ray bundle for only $32.99 (that’s 62% off the list price of $85.94).
This deal includes each film – Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III — on Blu-ray, packaged separately, each with its own set of bonus features (not to be confused with the Jurassic Park Ultimate Trilogy Blu-Ray Box Set or its Ultimate Collector’s Gift Set). The Jurassic Park Blu-ray edition also includes the 3D Blu-ray version, while all three sets contain their respective film on Blu-ray and DVD and include a digital copy.
Word of a Jurassic Park IV has been around for a long time now. We’ve never seen it turn into any sort of a reality, but with how popular the movies have been, it’s an expected eventual chapter. At this very moment, there still is no official progress of the movie, but Jurassic Park III director Joe Johnston is saying that the movie is on the way, and that it could be a whole new trilogy.
While speaking to Box Office, Johnston was cautious about where rumors of Jurassic Park IV had originated, but once he cozied up to the topic and was set up with mention that there was no way that they could logically go back to that island, he decided to fill everyone in on where it all stood.
