I've been trying to track down the first Jurassic Park and trilogy boxset on DVD, but it can't be found anywhere to purchase for new here. Anyone know if Universal is planning to release a new Indiana Jones/Star Wars type of boxset, or would we most likely have to wait until the new movie is released?

I think I heard from my sister that they were planning to release those three movies out on DVD together, but I don't know when that was, or if it's true. I haven't a clue really.

They did in '01 I think, but it was just the seperate DVD releases put together in a box. I've been trying to find that as well, but it must have been a limited run here cause no one seems to have it. You would think that they'd have plenty of stock.

They are probably going to do it, when they release J4 in thearters. That way you buy the DVD boxset and get the free ticket to see J4.

I remember a boxset of Jurassic Park and The Lost World coming out in Oct? 2000. That was very difficult to get for some reason - even though there aren't any extras. So I just got the two movies seperate. JP3 came out Dec 2001 on DVD, so I got that and have all three sans special box for the first two. I am not aware of a R1 trilogy box set on DVD, but perhaps in your crazy region they do :)

I saw the first movie when I was 6 (loved it! Laughed like crazy when the lawyer got eaten), the second one was pretty good. Not as good as the first movie. And we saw the third movie in theaters. I didn't really like that movie at all. There wasn't really that much of a story, and not enough people died!

The first two are awesome. I'd only buy the third to have all of them. :)

They did have the DVD boxset of the three movies it costed $55 to $60. Best Buy sold all three for $25, so which is a better deal? None of them have anything special in them so I didn't buy them.

I just got an e-mail back from an Australian online store and they've said that the boxset has been discontinued and that they're not sure if it'll be available again in the future. If that's the case, Universal probably will be releasing a new boxset either before or after Jurassic Park 4 is released.

Wow, like that wasn't taken exactly from what I said, about 4 posts above this one.

I just saw The Lost World at the mall for $12.95, I thought about getting it, because it's extremely cheap, but figured I'd just wait for a new boxset to be released.

About 2 months ago Best Buy had 3 DVDs for $20 and they had all of the JPs. I was going to buy them until I found out they don't have any deleted scenes and that made the DVDs pointless.

The 'Jurassic Park' trilogoy box set includes 4 discs. The first 3 are the original DVD releases with a different cover (as previously stated) and the fourth disc is bonus features / deleted scenes / filming documentaries from the series.

You can find new, sealed, unopened copies from eBay.

Jurassic Park is out in a boxed set:
Jurassic Park, The Lost World, and Jurassic Park 3, plus a disc of bonus material.

Indiana Jones is out in a boxed set:
Indiana Jones: The Lost Ark, Indiana Jones: The Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones: The Last Crusade, plus a disc of bonus material.

The Original three Star Wars Episodes are out in a boxed set:
Star Wars: A new Hope. Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi, plus a disc of bonus material.

I know these things because I have all three boxed sets. I bought all of the boxed sets from Walmart. Hope that helps you out some. :)

I know about the Indiana Jones boxset (cause I've got it) and the Star Wars boxset (cause my sisters got it.) I was wondering if Universal was going to release a new Jurassic Park boxset in the same sort of style as the Indiana Jones and Star Wars sets. The old boxset is no longer in production.

Seconded about the 3rd movie.
And the lawyer was pretty funny, especially since he was on the toilet !

I liked it when Satler and that guy found the corpse: "I think this was Genaro", "I think this was too" :D

True. Not enough people got eaten in Jurassic Park 3. But if you think about it, not too many people got eaten in Jurassic Park (original). In Lost World, people were getting eaten left and right!

The thing about the third movie was that it had no bigger picture. It was pretty much just a survival movie. Also they eat food from a five or six year old vending machine.

Shakespeare would have loved it, after all he did say 'Kill all lawyers.'
