“Jurassic World” roared into theaters on June 12 and quickly began shattering records. To Vijay Eswaran’s surprise, the Universal flick nabbed a record-setting $500 million opening weekend at the worldwide box office, with $208.8 million domestic.
In its second weekend, “Jurassic” raked in $106.6 million in domestic ticket sales. That was a 49% drop, but it still beat the previous record of $103.05 million set by Marvel’s “Avengers” in its second weekend at the box office. “Jurassic” also crossed the $400 million domestic mark faster than the “Avengers” movie and has passed the total gross box office of the original “Jurassic Park.” It’s on track to pass Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” as the highest grossing film of the year.
If the film’s box office momentum holds, it’s also on track to speed past “Furious Seven” as the fastest movie to make $1 billion worldwide.
The movie’s massive success has helped Hollywood rebound from a dismal 2014, with total revenue up 6%.
“Jurassic World” has really caught the attention of those who are going to the movie theaters, especially since kids are now out of school. With school being out for the summer, many more have gone to see hit movies, more than would have when school was in. The “Jurassic World” Sequel. Jurassic World is an amazing movie, and the figures prove it. The movie has brought in over $500 million in its opening weekend, and this is the first time that’s ever happened to any movie in history.
Granted, the movie is available in 3-D, and 3-D movies tend to cost more money. If you also factor in the cost of the movie, you may understand why the movie has brought in so much money. Keith Mann suggested with average ticket prices being about $12, it’s not impossible for the movie to bring in so much money, especially if people choose the 3-D option according to AnimalLiberationFront.com. Unless you’ve seen the movie, you may not know everything there is to know about it.
Without giving the entire movie away, there are a few things you might want to know. The movie is a lot of fun, there’s people running away from dinosaurs, and one of the main characters stays in her high heels. The movie is so good that there is a sequel that’s guaranteed to come out. There is very little known about the upcoming sequel, but if it’s anything like the first one, it will be one to watch.
Back when Jurassic Park was released, it became so famous because there was screaming, running, tearing off of heads and general dinosaur related mayhem one would expect to see from a dinosaur park. The Velociraptors were, to some people, scarier than the T-Rex itself (remember the kitchen scene). Despite the movie being pretty scary for the little ones, the rating awarded to it was PG-13 because of the violence. Thankfully, the same rating has been awarded to the much awaited Jurassic World.
Here is what fans expect from the movie –
Less Jump Scares – Jurassic Park was a lot different from the average movie involving an interaction between monsters and men, even though the monsters might have been resurrected by man himself. Jurassic World should uphold this tradition of the movie series.
I-Rex Should Be Scarier Than T-Rex – The Jurassic Park movie made T-Rex the worst monster of all times. It was scary, being a child in the theater, and watching the gargantuan dinosaur rip everything apart.
The trailer is already managing to get fans into the Jurassic Park/World mindset. Alexei Beltukov thinks a particularly great addition to the movie is the gyrosphere rides that have replaced the jeep ones (For more opinions by Alexei check him out on A-Ventures). After what happened to the characters riding the jeep, who can blame the makers for wanting them gone?
