Today yahoo news released the trailer for the Jurassic Park Blu-Ray trilogy set.
The trailer says the Blu-Ray will feature better picture, sound, and best of all hours of bonus features! Non of the bonus features have been revealed but we hope that it's not a re-hash of the DVD bonus materials. The release date is set for October 25th! As Mr. Arnold would say "Hold on to your butts!"

Well we have an Update! Steven Spielberge and screenwriter Mark Protosevich are currently brainstorming Ideas for a fourth film to reboot the franchise.
While no writer has been hired on and the meetings are just exploratory. Will Jurassic Park get a well deserved fourth film after ten years of Development limbo? It's hard to say but we can remain hopeful.

Today Jurassic Park turns eighteen years old! Check out these videos our cosplay group ran by Ammonites out of Utah made to promote the site!
We've also been hard at work on the next new version of the Encyclopedia Project system! While currently not all entries are transferred over the system does have an influx of the information (updated too) moved over to it from the old system. For now we will continue to run the old/new systems simultaneously until everything is fully 100% transferred over hopefully within the next couple of weeks (by July 18th) and article expansions done to old content on it by the site's anniversary.
Be sure to check it out here. Also with this new system we will be setting up a form on it to petition for access to contribute to the entries to the community as well as adding this same application to our forums to be filled out.
Happy Eighteenth Anniversary Jurassic Park!

Jurassic Park to Blu-Ray October 24th?
Date: Thursday, June 9, 2011 - 10:42 (Eastern) Author:Tyrannosaur
Coming by way of a few forum posts and a correspondence on Facebook with an old friend of mine I found out Jurassic Park: The Trilogy is coming to Blu-Ray October 24th. Here's the scoop from Blu-RayFreak.
It looks like 2011's run of brilliant Blu-ray releases is set to continue, as ZonaDVD has published news that the Jurassic Park Trilogy will be coming to Blu-ray in October. Not only is this great news, but they're also teasing us with an image of a collectors box set which looks really fantastic!
The three movies are stored in a digipack, but the real attraction is a T-Rex figure - and even the see-though box looks good, reminding us of the excellent Inception box set. This collector's edition will be joined by a regular pack with the movies, plus what ZonaDVD refer to as a 'metal case', which could well be a Steelbook.
They've got their information from Universal Spain who say the provisional release date is the 24th October, and while the Spanish release will be a little later, it'll still arrive before Christmas. It's also said the films will only be available as a trilogy, however it's probably they'll take the same approach as the Alien Anthology and wait a while before releasing them individually too.
Jurassic Park on Blu-ray could be a great disc and October isn't very far away, so let's hope for an official announcement soon.
Regardless of the fact I don't have a full on HDTV and a Blu-Ray player I'm still picking up the set for when I do. It looks like it also comes with a nice T.rex stand as well. Let's keep looking for that official announcement. Also be sure to sign our petition to get more features for the JP: Bluray release here!
