Universal Studios has released details about Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom's Blu-ray pre-order bonuses. The fifth Jurassic Park film came out a little more than a month ago and the option to pre-order the film is already available to fans.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom may have been met with some truly brutal reviews but it was none the less a box office success. Despite being a critical flop, the film still managed to reach $1 billion at the box office which is no easy feat even for a big franchise like Jurassic Park. No matter how poorly a film does with critics, it never affects the chances of getting a home video release on DVD and Blu-ray since it is another chance to make money. In the case of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, collectors can get some awesome merchandise if they choose to pre-order the film rather than waiting for the film to go on sale.
Universal Studios released a breakdown of all of the media options in one convenient interactive image. Being some of the biggest retail chains around, Walmart, Best Buy, and Target all have exclusive packaging to go with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom's Blu-ray disc. If you prefer not have a physical copy of the movie, Xfinity, iTunes, and VUDU have you covered. Pre-ordering through Xfinity and VUDU gives you early access to the bonus material while pre-ordering through iTunes will get you iTunes extras when the movie is released digitally on September 4th. Amazon even has a pre-order benefit by having a guaranteed delivery date of September 18 if you purchase the movie through them.
Critics may not have been overly pleased with Fallen Kingdom, but fans at least seemed to be pleased with director J.A. Bayona, at least more than Collin Trevorrow. Some fans have even launched a petition to have him replace Collin Trevorrow as the director for Jurassic World 3. While Fallen Kingdom may not have been as well received as hoped, Jurassic World 3 is certainly still happening because of the money the series brings in for Universal Studios.
Even if you were not a fan of the film, retailers are offering some enticing exclusives to try to rake in the money from potential buyers. After all, who wouldn't want to have a little Jurassic World Funko Pop keychain on their keys or have a Fallen Kingdom steelbook displayed on their shelf? Whatever you choose, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will be available on digital on September 4th and Blu-ray on September 18th.
