Lionsgate Home Entertainment just added an incredible true story 66 million years in the making to its release roster, by scheduling the documentary Dinosaur 13 for release on Blu-Ray Disc and DVD in January.
When renowned paleontologist Peter Larson and his team from the Black Hills Institute made the world’s greatest dinosaur discovery in 1990, they knew it was the find of a lifetime: the largest, most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex ever found. But during a 10-year battle with the U.S. government, powerful museums, Native American tribes and competing paleontologists, they found themselves not only fighting to keep their dinosaur, but fighting for their freedom as well.
The release will offer up a new director’s cut of the film along with a number of bonus materials. Among these bonus features you will find Deleted Scenes and the Featurettes ”The Continuing Story of SUE,” “Fossil Whales of Peru,” “Complete Auction of SUE” and ”How to Build a Dinosaur”.
“Dinosaur 13” will make it to stores on January 6 and can be yours for only $19.99 on either Blu-Ray Disc or DVD, each complemented by a digital copy.
