On Tuesday, Jurassic World stole The Avengers spot as the third-highest-grossing movie in history. The Universal movie, which is a sequel to Steven Spielberg’s 1993 Jurassic Park, has made $1.522 billion at the global box office.
The first highest-grossing movie of all time is Avatar, which made $2.788 billion. Coming second was Titanic, which made $2.186 billion. The Avengers now sits at fourth place, making $1.520 billion.
Watch the Jurassic World trailer, if you haven’t already:
TheWrap wrote: “Chris Pratt stars in Jurassic World, which broke the record for a domestic opening with $208.8 million on the June 12 weekend. Colin Trevorrow directed, in just his second feature film outing. Bryce Dallas Howard and Vincent D’Onofrio co-star in the film, which was produced by Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley, with Spielberg executive producing.”
‘Jurassic World’ still hasn’t shown in Japan, and will open there on August 5.
The review from rotten tomatoes says: “Jurassic World can’t match the original for sheer inventiveness and impact, but it works in its own right as an entertaining—and visually dazzling—popcorn thriller.” It gave it 3 1/2 stars and 71%.
I would like to see it to see how it measures up to the original Jurassic Park.
