Subject: Jurassic Park On DVD.


October heralds two of the biggest DVD releases ever in the history of home entertainment: Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Arguably the most famous film director in the world, Steven Spielberg, has for the first time given his permission for these incredible films to be released on DVD. The fact that Spielberg has only permitted the release of Jaws and Hook on DVD to date will give you some indication of the magnitude of his decision to release these epic box office smashes – films that spurned the world’s fascination with dinosaurs. As an example of Columbia TriStar’s continuing commitment to the upmost in quality these DVDs will be authored at the Sony DVD Center in L.A. They therefore will carry the gold standard endorsement of the world’s most superior quality DVD software – these really are the crème de la crème of DVD.

Be among the first in the world to experience a prehistoric event of such mammoth proportion.  The simultaneous worldwide release of these Collector's Editions lets T-Rex loose in your lounge room.  Available to own this month on DVD, get your teeth into them – before they get their teeth into you.
