Dr. Henry Wu In Jurassic Park

Steven Spielberg’s seminal classic Jurassic Park is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and if you look at the box office, dinosaurs have never been bigger. In 2015, Jurassic World returned fans to the island of Isla Nublar and raked in $1.6 billion worldwide. Currently, its sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, sits third on the 2018 worldwide box office charts with a whopping $1.2 billion. While it pained me how much I disliked Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, no one can deny that dinosaurs are still a big money attraction. And while the sequels may suffer from the law of diminishing returns, the original holds up as royalty. Now, thanks to Fathom Events, fans of the original can see it in theaters this September.

‘Jurassic World’ Museum Exhibition Debuts In U.S.

Jurassic World: The Exhibition

When I was a kid, I remember going to the Museum of Science in Boston for a new dinosaur exhibition right around the time Jurassic Park was released. It was amazing. Even got myself a Jurassic Jawbreaker, which is really just one of those giant Jawbreakers. Lasted me months.

Last year the fourth movie in the Jurassic Park franchise, Jurassic World, stormed into theaters and did huge numbers. A museum exhibition was created around the movie, and has already had a run in Australia. Now the exhibition has made its way here to the States, debuting at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia.

You can read the full press release with all the details below. If you’re like me and can’t make it to Philly, you can also find a great peek at what some of the exhibits look like from its run in Australia. Let’s just say, they can do way cooler stuff with animatronics now than they could back in the ’90s.

‘Jurassic World 2’ Said To Be “More Suspenseful and Scary”

Chris Pratt in Jurassic World

Sequels always up the ante in terms of story and visuals. So after the success of Jurassic World, it is safe to say that will happen tenfold in the sequel. While the rumor that the production budget for Jurassic World 2 ballooned up to $260 million was nothing more than hearsay, the film is expected to begin filming early next year. Although Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow won’t be there for the sequel, he will still be very much involved in guiding The Orphanage and The Impossible filmmaker J.A. Bayona as he takes his place directing the fifth installment of Universal’s Jurassic franchise. Now, Jurassic World writer Derek Connolly is dropping a few hints about what to expect in the sequel. Check out the story below.

‘Jurassic World 2’ Could Have A $260 Million Production Budget According To Director

Jurassic World Movie Review

Last week, A Monster Calls director J.A. Bayona confirmed that Jurassic World will become a trilogy and that Colin Trevorrow would still be very much a part of the creative process despite his obligations to other projects. Now, as far as sequels go, the film is going to get bigger. That’s not at all surprising. The first Jurassic World cost up to $150 million, and that’s not accounting for the marketing costs. Remember all those shameless production placements thrown into the actual film, like “Verizon Wireless Presents The Indominus Rex” or “Magaritaville?”

While the production budget is expected to go up, a new report says it’s expected to go way up. According to Bayona, the budget for the Jurassic World sequel would be $260 million, which would be a $110 million increase from the previous film. Check out the full story below.

Chris Pratt in Jurassic World

Last year, Colin Trevorrow‘s Jurassic World exceeded everyone’s wildest expectations by grossing $1.67 billion worldwide. As such, Universal Pictures announced that there would be a sequel. But with Trevorrow otherwise preoccupied with The Book Of Henry and Star Wars: Episode IX, the responsibility of directing the next Jurassic World would have to go to J.A. Bayona.

Bayona was named the director of the sequel a few months back, and while at the Toronto International Film Festival recently, the filmmaker confirmed that Jurassic World will be a direct sequel. See below for more on the story and who else will be involved in making the film.

‘Jurassic World’ Re-Imagined As 1970’s Star-Studded Disaster Movie (Video)

Jurassic World Chris Pratt

Late last year, an intrepid YouTube user going by the handle ChiefBrodyRules (yes, yes, he certainly does) created a fan trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier in the manner of a VHS sneak preview for a 1980’s Cannon Films B-action flick, and it was undeniably awesome.

The Chief’s latest triumph of imagination, ingenuity, and clever video editing skills re-imagines this past summer’s biggest global blockbuster, Jurassic World, as the sort of star-packed, high-concept disaster movie the late Irwin Allen pioneered, with more than a reasonable helping of dark science-fiction.

You can watch it here below.

‘Jurassic World’ Sequel To Roar Into Theaters In The Summer Of 2018

Jurassic World Chris Pratt

I had a feeling Jurassic World was going to be a huge hit, but never in my wildest dreams did I suspect it would surpass The Avengers to become the third highest-grossing movie of all time worldwide. $1.522 billion in global office? Amazing.

What doesn’t surprise me is that Universal Pictures has not only announced a sequel to World today, but they have also given it a release date of June 22, 2018. Colin Trevorrow, the indie filmmaker who brought a little life to the moribund franchise as World‘s director, will co-write the script with Derek Connolly. Together they wrote both the recent dino-tastic blockbuster and Trevorrow’s 2012 feature directorial debut, Safety Not Guaranteed.

Jurassic World

When the Jurassic Park franchise was officially revived with the release of Jurassic World last month, it immediately made a huge impact by scoring $208.8 million to start things off, beating The Avengers‘ opening weekend record of $207.4. Something Marvel was cool enough to tip their hat to with a congratulatory message.

Now it appears another congratulations from Marvel is in order. It’s being reported that Jurassic World has now leapfrogged The Avengers once again, this time to take the number three all-time highest grossing movie worldwide spot. The movie has made $1.522 billion, passing the former number three’s $1.520 billion. The only two movies ahead of it now are James Cameron’s Titanic, which made almost $2.2 billion worldwide, and Cameron’s Avatar, which made almost $2.8 billion. Two other movies from this year have also made it into the top ten all-time worldwide: Furious 7 with $1.5 billion, and Avengers: Age of Ultron with $1.4 billion.
