Jurassic World has broken many records

When Jurassic Park was released way back in 1993, analysts predicted big things for the prehistoric blockbuster and the same can be said for its two sequels, The Lost World and Jurassic Park III.

However, the release of Jurassic World just over a month ago took people completely by surprise. There was no doubt it would be successful, but just how successful has shocked the entire film world.

Helmed by an unknown director, with some pretty uninspiring trailers and a disappointing toy line, a few websites had it as one of their ‘at risk’ films of 2015. How wrong they were.

The film has now grossed over $1.4bn globally and shows no real signs of slowing down. It broke dozens of film records across the world and threatens to topple Avengers Assemble as the third highest-grossing film of all time.

Take 2: A look back – Jurassic Park III

In the first of a new series of articles looking back at films which didn’t quite get the warm response they perhaps deserved, Adam Brannon examines 2001’s Jurassic Park III.

The first Jurassic Park was a lesson in how to do most things right with a big blockbuster. It had action, suspense and drama only a person like Steven Spielberg could bring to the silver screen.

Its box office success speaks for itself, having been re-released a couple of years ago, it finally crossed the coveted $1bn mark, a feat mainly reserved for films released in the 21st century.
