Ultimate DVD #08
T-REX SIZED EXTRAS FOR JP!
The special editions of both Jurassic Park and its sequel The Lost World are due for release around the end of October/early November, but the distributors of the disc, Universal, have made sure that the amazing releases will be worth the wait.
Jurassic Park, for instance, has a mammoth amount (sorry, couldnt resist!) of added value: a Making of Jurassic Park featurette, behind the scenes footage of pre-production meetings, storyboards, foley art, Phil Tippets animatronics, production photos, production notes, a dinosaur encyclopedia, cast and film-maker bios, DVD-ROM content and the theatrical trailers for Jurassic Park, The Lost World and the upcoming Jurassic Park III...
Theres certainly a stunning array of features for this Spielberg double-whammy, which is expected to emerge for the bargain price of £14.99 each.
Scream again and again
Hot on the heels of the Region 1 release of the third chapter in Wes Cravens horror franchise comes news of the Scream trilogy box-set. This comes with what is becoming an industry standard the extra disc, filled to the brim with added value.
Firstly, Scream will benefit from an anamorphic print as well as all the extras currently available on the current collectors edition. Scream 2 will benefit from an anamorphic 2.35:1 print with DD5.1 plus an audio commentary by Wes Craven and two producers. There will also be deleted scenes with commentary, a Making of featurette, outtake montage and music videos, trailers, TV spots etc.
Scream 3 is the same as the current DVD release, but the real gems can be found on the fourth extra disc. Behind the Scream is a documentary looking at the franchise, there will also be more outtakes, a Cutting Room feature which allows you to edit your own scene from the comfort of your armchair, screentests from Neve Campbell, Jamie Kennedy and Skeet Ulrich and the Sunrise Studios trailers.
DVD-ROM features include the compulsory Trivia Game, the screenplays for all three films, links to the website and a Scream Saver (do you see what they did there?).

panic-stricken about violence.
