By Creative MediaDinosaurs are not going extinct soon, at least at the box-office, as Universal Pictures’ Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom crosses the one billion dollar mark at the global box-office.
The Chris Pratt-starred sequel to Jurassic World crossed the mark on Thursday, $304m of it it made domestically, where it is still number one at the box-office. The Universal/Amblin Entertainment film still has to open in Japan on July 13.
With this feat, Universal joins Disney as the only studios to have two films in three different franchise films to reach $1billion. In Universal’s case, apart from the two Jurassic World films, it also includes two films from The Fast And Furious Franchise (Furious 7 and The Fate of the Furious) and two from the Despicable Me franchise (Despicable Me 3 and Minions).
2015’s “Jurassic World,” ended its box-office run with $1.7 billion, which at the time was third in all time list, just below two of James Cameron’s juggernauts Avatar and Titanic.
Directed by J.A. Bayona, ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ had a staggered release pattern, first opening mostly in Europe and Asia on June 6 ahead of it’s domestic release on June 22, 2018.
‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ is currently playing in theaters everywhere.
