Jurrasic Park DVD Set to offer Kong tickets

jpark 08 sends this in: (via Universal Studios Home Entertainment will be re-releasing all three "Jurassic Park" films in a new "Adventure Pack" to tie-in with the studio's theatrical release of "King Kong" this Christmas. All three "Jurassic Park" films will be presented in a new package (a digipack with a slipcover), but at this date it appears as if nothing new has been added to the bonus features. Besides including all of the previously released bonus features from the individual discs of the films, the set will only include the Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtracks on the first two Spielberg-directed films. "Jurassic Park III," however, will include both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 tracks. So what's in it for fans that have already purchased the titles? Not much, honestly. But if you have yet to pick up the trilogy, you'll be able to pick all three discs up in the single set for a very reasonable $26.98 or less, plus you'll get a free movie theater ticket to see Universal's "King Kong" this December. There's no Spielberg connection since "Kong's" a Pete Jackson film, but dinosaur fans will certainly want to see their extinct heroes fighting an over-sized ape. The "Jurassic Park Adventure Pack" will be available this November 29."
