Spielberg, meanwhile, provided an exciting update about Jurassic Park 4: "We have a story, I can happily announce right now," said Spielberg. "We have a writer... Hopefully, we'll be making Jurassic Park 4 in the near future. In the next two or three years."

You can't even imagine how exciting this news is. ;) If Spielberg ends up directing this(which I don't think he will) that would make this even so much more exciting. I hope they go back to their roots and set the movie back on Isla Nublar.

Like a lot of movies, they kind of got away from what made the first one so great. Hope they can recapture that.

the first one was ground breaking - 2 and 3 were laughably bad. hope they don't continue down that same road. the whole dinosaurs in new york city thing was embarrassing.

Mark Protosevich was the writer that Spielberg mentioned last summer as brainstorming ideas, but yesterday Universal officially hired Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver to write the script for the ideas that Spielberg and Protosevich have come up with. This is very exciting news because this proves that progress on this movie is definitely being made. For those who don't follow the movie business closely, Jaffa and Silver are the writing team that wrote last year's hit movie Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

My guess is that Jurassic Park IV will be coming out in the summer of 2014. They are not far enough along to get anything out by next year, and the timing makes sense. Next July they are releasing the original Jurassic Park movie back in the theaters in 3D for its 20th anniversary. Makes perfect sense to attach a Jurassic Park IV trailer to it.

Keeping my fingers crossed things keep moving along and we can all see dinosaurs back on the silver screen. :)

i remember the feeling i had when i first saw jurassic park. i must of been 10 or 11. no movie has ever come close to the hype. sadly, it will be tough to come close to the first one.

You ask me they should forget a sequel and just reboot the series. I liked the first and third movie, but that second one needs to be burned and buried under a mountain. Could you imagine how the reboot would look now? Especially if Weta Works got involved (Lord of the Rings FX guys). Their work in practical special effects is awesome.

Frank Marshall, the producer says the plan is to have it in theaters within 2 years and is targeting a summer release. With Jurassic Park being re-released next summer in 3D, all the pieces and signs(Spielberg's comments, Marshall's comments, hiring of writers) keep pointing to a Summer 2014 release. Hopefully things keep moving along smoothly.

The first one was one of my favorite movies ever. The third one with the Spinosaurus was pretty bad ass too. The kid was annoying though. The 2nd one was "eh". Can't wait for JP1 in 3D, that'll be sick.

Any idea on what this newest one will revolve around?

No idea what it will be about. Joe Johnston, the likely director, has mentioned that it will go in a completely different direction of the original three. Has mentioned that it could be setting up a new trilogy. Though this was before Spielberg really got involved so who knows what direction they are going. They did say it will be a sequel and not a reboot. My hope is that they return to the original island of the first film. Would be cool to see similar scenes like the gate and the visitor center what it would like like 20 years later. I also hope they bring in some water creatures like a Plesiosaur, Kronosaurus or even a Megalodon. I was a fan of the Spinosaurus, but there is just something special about the Rex.

That game looks pretty cool. The visitor center looks amazing.


This is going to be a very fun year and a half for the Jurassic Park nerd in me. I have been waiting for 12 years for more Jurassic Park and now I am getting overload and I love it. The original Jurassic Park movie is being digitally remastered and in 3D for an April 5, 2013 release. I am going to see it the first week so I can see it in IMAX. Then I get a fourth Jurassic Park movie a year later.

Some people grew up loving absolutely everything about movies like Star Wars, Star Trek, Indiana Jones, etc. Jurassic Park was my love growing up and till this day it is still my favorite movie of all time. The sequels had their moments, but nothing was like the original Jurassic Park. I have high hopes for the 4th installment and I pray the return to Nublar.

Colin Trevorrow was just announced as the director and filming is rumored to be starting in April. Never heard of the guy and his resume is small, but he apparently is an up and comer who has done some award winning low budget movies. Plus they said he grew up a big fan of the series, so it is nice to have a true fan working on it.

Being the Jurassic Park nerd that I am, I actually did know that. When the Rex is flinging the Gallimimus back and forth in its mouth it is the sound of a dog playing with a dog toy.

here you go nubs. a synopsis

JURASSIC PARK 4, set in present day Isla Nublar, is now an actual theme park, as originally intended by John Hammond in the first film. It garners 10 million visitors per year and is completely safe - until it's not. The park itself is described as very Sea World-esque and includes an area called the Isla Nublar Lagoon. That means underwater dino's for the first time. No indication of what kind, but there's concept art showing one of the aquatic dino's, as part of a show, jumping out of the lagoon and eating a strung up great white shark like it was a fish for a dolphin at sea world.

As part of a show, you ask? That's right, folks, this will feature "tamed" dino's. In fact, our source indicated that the usually menacing Velociraptors (which will finally be muzzled, along with the T-Rex - until they're not) will actually be used to help fight the threat, which begins in the form of a new dinosaur, not seen in any of the previous films (and not disclosed to us) shows to be much smarter than originally thought and is the main cause of havoc breaking out at the park.

So, to sum it all up, JURASSIC PARK 4 will take place back on Isla Nublar with a fully operational dinosaur theme park (I'm sure no expense was spared) that's both prosperous and safe, until a new dinosaur figures out a way to wreak havoc, causing the use of the now tamed Velociraptors (and T-Rex? Unclear) as a means to fighting the threat.

Damn it, that is a long ways off.

As a diehard Jurassic Park fan I have waited 12 years at this point since the last movie. It is still almost two years away from the next sequel, but I am absolutely thrilled to finally know after all these years that this movie is happening. Right now we have a director who might not be well known but is a diehard JP nerd just like the rest of the fans, a completed script, a kickass title, a logo, a release date and rumored cast members.

Jurassic Park III in 2001 might not have been the best sequel, but part of the fun leading up to that movie was all the pre-production rumors and filming news that took place almost a year before that. Sounds like Jurassic World will probably kick off filming shortly after the new year in 2014. I can't wait.

Jurassic World is just the beginning! In an interview with Empire Magazine, Trevorrow said that there has already been talk of during future sequels and that the story for Jurassic World was made in a way that it can be a continuous story arc instead of just independent movies. He specifically went on to mention Chris Pratt and Omar Sy being set up to have roles in the future movies(assuming they survive in Jurassic World. haha).

My thinking all along is that a decade from now we will have three Jurassic Park movies and three Jurassic World movies.

Also, Trevorrow confirmed the return of the animatronics.

Interesting rumors circulating. Sounds like the big bad new dinosaur might be the work of Dr. Wu gone mad. Muhaha. Dipping into the popular Chaos Effect idea of the late 90s. While it doesn't sound that drastic, it sounds like a pretty cool concept for the main new dino. Of course the movie will still have the classics like the Rex and Raptors.

This is pretty cool and maybe only the JP/Theme Park nerd that I am can appreciate. If you have been to Disney World lately, you will know that they have a new system called Magic Bands. They are wrist bands you wear everywhere you go and they act as your room key, park pass and you can get fast passes on them.

Take a look at the third picture above at the wrist of Ty, he appears to be wearing some sort of blue wrist band. Well, the extras they used this week are posting pictures (with the director's permission) on Twitter/Instagram of a prop they got to take home. They are wrist bands that are being described as the park pass, basically Jurassic World's version of Magic Bands. Pretty cool.

Here are some photos of them:

Haha, I totally missed the tri-force in the background.

Not sure if it is a muzzle or not, could just be something placed on it to keep it safe during transportation. The nice thing about it is that it is a combination of the Jurassic Park and Lost World raptor. The Jurassic Park III raptor changes were a little drastic IMO.

There are two types of Raptors in Jurassic Park III. The ones that are similar to this and the first two movies, than the ones with the feather quills. Personally, I would have not done the one with the feather quills.

I don't know. I personally thought the third one was pretty good. Definitely better than Lost World.

Third one had moments and I did like the Spinosaurus, but there wasn't much of a story and was more of mindless popcorn flick. That is what you get though when the filmmakers throw out the script a few weeks before filming and pretty much make the story up as they shot it. This actually happened with the third film.

It took them over a decade to come up with the the story for the 4th film and you can really tell that they have put a lot of time and effort in to it. CGI complaints on trailers is very lame because you need to use common sense that a trailer for a film that comes out almost half a year later is a work in progress. There are a lot of movie still comparisons and videos out there for other movies that compare trailers to final versions. A lot of the time they will even include these on a film's blu ray release. The premise is very exciting, the cast is pretty good and the new dinosaurs are great additions. Even the new D-Rex looks pretty cool based on the feet/arms from the trailer and the leaks of her LEGO figure.

Very exciting times.

Of course the movie is in post production so they have 7 months to clean it up.This is accurate, and a good example is the Jurassic World gate in the beginning of the trailer. It was CGI created just for the trailer, for the final film version they built a real practical gate.

There are animatronic dinosaurs(not shown in this trailer), so the effects will look great in the final version. Ripping a movie based on CGI in a trailer not looking 100% when they are still early in post-production is silly.

It is not that big. It is a perspective shot and meant to be deceiving for the poster. The Indominus Rex is slightly bigger than the T-Rex. Also, there is a good reason why they can lose track of it.

Whoa, hit the brakes on this. It's not like the dinosaurs exchange dialog. All animals use some form of communication whether it's thru body language, pheromones, or even dance. This is not some far-fetched idea, IMO. It's in fact very natural and cohesive to the animal realm.

It's a hybrid which isn't needed to make a good plot I don't see the point in it just a cop out to have a smarter, more dangerous T-Rex.. Just I would be happier with the actual dinosaurs. Not some made up dinosaur to make a arguably "more interesting" plot.

Right after they say the I-rex can communicate with other dinosaurs they show it roar at some flying dinosaurs. Those dinosaurs take off and the next scene shows them attacking tourist. To me this implies a smarter species giving orders to a lesser species in order to achieve some sort of goal. Let's not forget they not only state this thing is killing for sport and it also claws out the tracking device that was surgically implanted. My problem isn't the I-rex being a mix of other species, it's the fact that they are making it smart on a human level. Like I said, Planet of the Apes style.

Also the Liger is a result of cross breeding between a male lion and a female tiger, not genetic engineering as is the case with the Indominus Rex. Also a Tigon is the result of cross breeding a female lion with a male tiger.

That is the funny thing with trailers, dialogue and what is shown on screen don't always match up. If you think the Indominus Rex is giving commands you are mistaken. What is funny is that when the "they are communicating" line is delivered, they are not even talking about the hyrbid. I won't spoil what is going on, but this is the farthest thing from a "Planet Of The Dinosaurs". :lol:

What is funny is that when the "they are communicating" line is delivered, they are not even talking about the hyrbid. I won't spoil what is going on, but this is the farthest thing from a "Planet Of The Dinosaurs". :lol:
No please. If you know I'm wrong then by all means tell me so. Because it will help restore my faith in the movie if I am wrong. Just toss it in a spoiler tag just in case other people don't want it spoiled.

Ok. That makes me feel better. Not much better, but it helps. I still have issues with the Indom being human smart as a result of genetic engineering.

I am as big a Jurassic Park fan as you'll find...I have two animation cels from the first movie's Mr. DNA sequence framed above my desk...and I have to say almost everything I've seen of Jurassic World thus far has made me wince.

Almost everything. LOVE the Mosasaur. I hope that thing isn't confined to just the amount of screentime in the trailers.

As you know more than anyone on Finheaven, this all comes from a place of loving the JP franchise, Nubs. ;) Heck, I'd be happy if they strapped a Gallimimus toy to the back of a pig and called it "JP4". I just think this looks more JPIII than the original classic. Not a bad thing as much as a "oh okay I don't have to think during this one...they have kids flying around in space bubbles" resetting of expectations.

This movie was so good. By far the best sequel and IMO just a notch below the original. Most fun you will probably have at the movie theaters this Summer.

The Jurassic Park franchise is back on track. I loved Jurassic World so much and it was awesome to see a packed IMAX theater cheering and applauding at the end. Seeing it again Saturday and maybe three times total before the end of the weekend. So good and the last 20-30 minutes is just so freaking awesome.

Easy there fella. It is good, easily the second best Jurassic Park movie, but to say it is the most fun you will have this summer in a movie. Not quite. Certainly most family fun that is for sure. At least until Inside Out and Minions come out. And lets be fair. You weren't going to give this movie anything less than a stellar review. Asking you how good a Jurassic Park movie is like asking me how good is a Halo game. I know I will tell you all the Halo games are worth playing.

As stated, this movie is good and is a fun watch. Totally worth seeing in the theaters. The characters for the most part a well rounded. They did a very nice job casting this movie. The visuals are spot on. Though I must say there are some scenes where the CGI from the original film is STILL better. To be fair though that can be said about any movie when compared to the original JP. There were a ton of nods to the original movie, so much so that it got tiresome at points. The score for the movie is excellent though. They applied the original theme by John Williams at just the right times. Seeing a fully functional park was really cool. You would REALLY want to go there if it existed. I mean how cool would it be to drive that sphere through a heard of dinosaurs? Plus the pacing of the movie was excellent. There wasn't any point of the movie where I lost interest. Though I did question quite a bit.

I am sorry. The whole genetically modified dinosaur was pretty lame. I took major issue with the fact that, even though they had this thing locked up forever, they didn't know that it active camouflage or that it some how knew to hide it's heat signature? The worse part was that it knew it had a tracking device in it's body. Sorry. Even Pratt saying it remembered being injected with it wasn't enough to cover up the fact that it some how knew was the device was for. More over they didn't even find it in the wild before it removed the tracker so how could it have learned what the device was for in order to figure out how it was being tracked? Then there is the fact that just because it has raptor DNA it can all of a sudden communicate and control the raptors. First off it would have had to know WHAT a raptor is to communicate with it. Pratt made it very clear the thing never had any contact with the outside world so there is no way it would even have the instincts to know to communicate with them. Moreover the Indominous didn't grow up with the raptors. Pratt did. The fact that the raptors turned on the Indominus in the end just shows they should never have turned on Pratt to begin with. They clearly trusted Pratt over the Indominous.

Then there was inGen. What the hell was it? A private military group all of a sudden? At first I bought D'Onofrio's character wanting to train the raptors for military use. Made total sense. Quick way to make a major profit. However he all of a sudden has access to a private army? It made no sense. More importantly no one besides Pratt even knew who he was. Even the guy who funded the whole park had to be told who he was. Then there was the fact that Dr. Wu was working for him and not for the guy who funded the place? It was sloppy to say the lease.

As for the last 30 minutes of the movie. The action was really good. Like I said the pacing was great. However the whole "let's one up the original movie" with a t-rex and raptor fighting the Indominous Rex was pretty weak. The fight was well done don't get me wrong but it just smacked of trying to one up the original. I would have rather seen it earlier in the movie rather than it being the reason the Indominous bit the dust. Also this is one of the scenes where the CGI doesn't hold up very well.

I know that seems like more complaints that praise, but I did enjoy the movie. However if they continue this franchise it will do nothing but hurt it. I know Dr. Wu escaping was the set up for a possible sequel but in the end we are back to the end of JP. A park that didn't work ripe for interlopers to go back to and get in trouble.

On a side note my buddy noticed some interesting things. One is the fact the t-rex smashed through spinosaur skeleton. Which was clearly fan service. The other was the t-rex had older scares on its body. He thinks it is the original t-rex from the first movie. I am not sure I buy that fact just because it would have to be pretty damn old at this point if it were the same t-rex. I mean JW is set 20 some odd years after JP.

Jurassic World made $82.8 million and could be looking at a weekend between $190 million and $200 million.

The 4th Jurassic Park movie actually has a shot at the 2nd biggest opening weekend of all time, even bigger than Age Of Ultron. So yeah. :)

In the film, we are provided with two antagonists other than the dinosaurs; the InGen employee Hoskins and the scientist Wu. We are told this because Hoskins has a goatee and his men wear all black, and Wu refuses to take responsibility for any of his actions. Contrasted with these two are park owner Masrani and manager Claire, the former receiving a heroes' death and the latter finding love and her maternal instincts. It is surprising that no one informed the creative team of the film that these roles are reversed; neither Wu nor Hoskins are villains. Wu is simply doing what he was asked to do from Masrani and the board of directors, but he is painted as irresponsible and to blame. Hoskins receives the most loathsome treatment; not at all responsible for the GMO dinosaur escaping, he comes up with a plan to use the tamed velociraptors to kill the GMO dinosaur. While his grand scheme is decidedly less altruistic, with some nonsense about using wild animals in warfare, he is ultimately trying to stop the deaths occurring in the park in rapid numbers. For this, he is giving a villains' death, left to beg for his life while the "good guys" watch him get devoured. Indiana Jones, present in the park because of how he trained the velociraptors, makes no attempt to save his life. Instead, he is busy protecting the park manager who pushed for new dinosaurs while mourning the owner who sent a military unit with non-lethal weapons, thus getting them all killed. It is a strange move considering how much better the original films were at demarcating the lines between good and evil.

It is not a coincidence that several of the characters are known for the most famous and influential comedy shows of the new century (The Office, Arrested Development, Parks and Recreation, The New Girl). The film continually attempts to wink and nod at the audience about how ridiculous a movie like this is, with Claire insulting the audience's need for bigger dinosaurs and the trappings of romantic cliches. The film wants the audience to shake their heads at the idea of Verizon sponsoring a dinosaur, but why do we see every character using a Samsung phone, Beats headphones, and Coca-Cola all so prominent? Why do we have to see one of the most grating late-night personalities goofing around in both a fake ad for the park and a real commercial for the film's parent company? This is twenty-first century wit; living within the machine while pretending to be above it. The best movies of this type will either give up all their pretensions, embracing its rollercoaster mentality, or it will serve as a deep and subversive contemporary critique. Spielberg has mostly understood this as a director, but as a producer he has never made any serious attempts.

You can count the deaths in Jurassic Park on one hand for a reason; the fear of death is always more effective than an overdose of it. The movie keeps throwing us more and more stock characters to be eaten, and its effect is more and more numbing as the film goes on. This is the rule for modern movies, where the economy of carnage has been completely overshadowed by the computer-generated destruction that has replaced it. When significant characters do die, we are treated to a very questionable sequence. A female assistant to Claire, who has been portrayed as aloof, is picked up by a flying dinosaur just when she finally finds the kids. Instead of quickly killing her to show the audience how no one is safe, she is dropped and picked up several times, ultimately ending where she and the bird are both eaten by the giant sea dinosaur. It is the kind of sequence you would expect for a more traditional villain, but perhaps the 17 writers got this mixed up.

Just like Super 8 a few years ago, we are again shown that aping Spielberg will never replace the real thing. Spielberg is the gold standard in mainstream filmmaking, and he has been for four decades for a reason. He inadvertently made the blockbuster with Jaws, only to reinvent it over the years with films that continued to push the envelope both creatively and financially. He was replaced by James Cameron shortly after Jurassic Park in terms of profitability, but Spielberg's work will always be the auteurist guide to working within the studio system. Colin Trevorrow would have done better to find his own voice, but it is doubtful any of it was in his control anyway.

Chin up Avengers, maybe next time your movie will have the biggest opening weekend of the year. Haha

Jurassic World made an estimated $204.6 million for its opening weekend, moving into second place all time and passing the previous number one opening of the year that Ultron had at $191.3 million.

Here is the kicker though, these are studio ESTIMATES, and Universal is known to underestimate so they don't have egg on their face later. The all time record of $207 million by the first Avengers could fall also once the actuals come out. Then I might need to find an image of Loki crying. lol

Now I know it was not a helicopter exploding behind the Indominus Rex, it was Age Of Ultron's claim of the top opening weekend of 2015. :)

Not really sure why this is a big deal. Jurassic World is meant as a reboot to the franchise more than it is intended to be a sequel. If it was meant to be a true sequel it would have kept the Jurassic Park name. Not to mention there hasn't been a Jurassic Park movie in over ten years. Where as there was an Avengers movie just three years ago. So these numbers are not that shocking in the least.

No one ever put Jurassic World on the same level as Avengers. Star Wars and Avengers for the most part are considered to be on a level of their own. Jurassic World not only got onto that level, but it moved ahead of some of them.

If you follow movies real closely you will know that absolutely no one was considering Jurassic World as the biggest opening weekend of the year. The conversation was always Age Of Utlron vs Force Awakens. Now come Christmas, Force Awakens still has a decent shot at the top opening of the year.

There is no need to downplay this opening weekend as something that isn't spectacular. There is a reason there are so many jaws dropped this morning in Hollywood. No one saw this coming. As for beating Age Of Ultron, I am glad since IMO Jurassic World is the better film. Now if the actuals come out and say it beat the original Avengers record than you could debate who was more deserving. The first Avengers film was fantastic.

I never said anyone was considering Jurassic World as having one of the biggest openings. I said it was considered a summer blockbuster which means it was mentioned in the same breath as Ultron and expected to make a **** ton of money. I believe you though when you say people doubted it would it would make AoU in the opening weekedn. However I still don't find it that shocking it managed to make that much.

As for which film is better? They are the same. While JW is meant to be a reboot it still suffers from the same issues as a sequel, and that's living up to the original. Which was AoU's problem as well. Both are fun movies, but not nearly as good as their predecessors. In the case of AoU not nearly as good as some of the other Marvel movies.

I thought Ultron was one of the weaker Marvel movies. My favorite was GOTG followed closely by the first Avengers.

But Ultron and JW not being as good as the original is perfectly fine. The originals of those two are cinematic classics and no one should expect future sequels to be as good. All you can hope for is that it be a very good stand alone movie and offer a fresh take on the franchise, which I believe JW did.

I didn't realize there was a rivalry between the Avengers and Jurassic Park. The numbers aren't too surprising though. Moviegoers have been bombarded by comic movies and Marvel movies in particular. It came out less than a year after another relatively successful Marvel movie (GotG). Meanwhile, we've been waiting 22 years for a good follow up to something we had never seen before on the big screen in Jurassic Park (since this is the closest it appears they've come to touching on what made the first one successful, though I thought 3 was kinda fun). Add that to the fact that dinosaurs have more universal appeal than comic books and it shouldn't be shocking. I will say, though, that the box office numbers aren't anything special. Yes, it's a ton of money, but kinda skewed by the price of admission and often having no choice but to opt for 3D and whatnot. I prefer ticket sales. That should make you happy too, if there really is an Avengers vs. Jurassic Park rivalry, as JP is 16th all time vs Avengers 27th. (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/alltime/adjusted.htm?adjust_yr=1p=.htm) Of course, even that is skewed by multiple releases (JP included), which is usually a good thing.

Our kid is staying with his grandparents this week, so we may go watch this at Alamo. Mad Max first though. I've been dying to go see that. Might go see it twice this week. Talk about a long ****ing wait. 30 years since the last sequel. The villain was Tina Turner! Then we'll hit up Jurassic World, at Alamo, of course. Ex Machina is another I'd like to fit in if I could, but that's a long shot as my wife has zero interest and a kid isn't the only thing preventing me from seeing as many movies as I once did.

I actually like the plot and where they went with it. The characters and the dialogue, on the other hand, I thought were dreadful.

I think the notion that people would get bored of dinosaurs and that the corporation would push for bigger and better is spot on. I also think the idea of trying to tame Raptors and use them for military purposes because at some point technology may just go dark is actually kind of interesting. And I thought it was reasonable enough why Hoskins would believe it could work, even though we know it's going to backfire.

I thought the characters were 1 dimensional. The kids were superfluous outside of Claire's workaholic cliche. Every time they were on screen I was bored or annoyed. I also agree with Zest that Owen's decision to just stand there and let the raptor eat Hoskins while protecting Claire was terrible. And about every five minutes there was a line of dialogue that made me face palm.

I thought the characters were 1 dimensional. The kids were superfluous outside of Claire's workaholic cliche. Every time they were on screen I was bored or annoyed. I also agree with Zest that Owen's decision to just stand there and let the raptor eat Hoskins while protecting Claire was terrible. And about every five minutes there was a line of dialogue that made me face palm.


Agreed. I actually liked the idea of them exploring using raptors for military use. It made total sense. Especially since InGen probably relied on military contracts to get back on its feet after the first park took a ****. I also agree with them using genetic engineering to make them bigger and "better" just not as smart as the I-Rex was. That thing exhibited human level intelligence and the only explanation for it was that it had raptor DNA. Which was a pretty crappy cop out.

I won't say too much (mainly because I have never figured out the spoiler thing), but the last 30 minutes are worth the price of the ticket alone.

I can't complain about character development and dialog in a movie like this...****ing dinosaurs on the big screen trumps the those issue.

I did like the call backs to the original. as many have said, easily the second best in the series and could become a staple in the group of movies I watch on a yearly basis.

With this new set of Star Wars films nothing is "known", it is an open ended book that was unwritten. Yeah there are storylines beyond Return of the Jedi but those aren't going to be included so this opens up a whole new age of Star Wars fans.

They really have the opportunity to due something special, I hope they don't regurgitate the standard format with next generation characters because that would be a damn shame.

It's a beloved franchised that already is in the top three all-time in terms of adjusted gross and ticket sales that will benefit from the same thing Jurassic World did: years in between release dates (including over a decade since the disappointing sequels/prequels: 2001 for Jurassic Park 3 and 2005 since the last Star Wars). Further, Star Wars is practically a religion for a lot of people. You may be able to remove "practically" from that sentence. Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace is ranked 17 all-time adjusted gross just behind Jurassic Park at 16, and I don't know anybody who likes that movie. :lol:

From that same list: Star Wars is #2, Empire Strikes Back is #12, and Return of the Jedi is #15. The Avengers is #27 with no theatrical rereleases yet. It will probably move into the top 20 when it does, knocking out The Sting. What's impressive are the movies that maintain top spots without any rereleases factored in.

I've used that same list several times in the past. This new Star Wars could be released on a Wednesday and it would be packed. Jurassic Park was a good movie but I would never put it on par with the Star Wars franchise in terms of overall performance. Hell you can't even put the Avengers on par with Star Wars and Marvel seems to have a free pass to box office glory, still not even close to the Star Wars films.

With 4 films in the top 20 all time there isn't even a close runner up at this point.

https://variety.com/2015/film/news/jurassic-world-record-monday-box-office-1201520863/#


The blockbuster sequel ripped into $25.6 million at the North American box office on Monday — a huge sum that ranks as the biggest non-holiday Monday in history. The previous record holder was “The Dark Knight,” which picked up $24.5 million in 2008.

That image came from Kevin Feige, PRESIDENT of Marvel. So, yeah. If you have an issue with the comparisions take it up with the guy in charge. :)

It also isn't a "rivalry", it just so happens that the records that Jurassic World are breaking belong to the Marvel movies. That is why they keep being included in the conversation. However, the record Jurassic World broke today belonged to The Dark Knight. So for today, we can move off The Avengers comparisions. Though that might come back up tomorrow if/when Jurassic World breaks the record for fastest to $250 million domestically.

Yeah, Feige isn't the one in here that has continuously tried to push the imaginary rivalry with every post for some strange reason. Are you really shocked that it broke records? First sequel in 14 years with nothing else like it released in between. It's not rocket science. I'm happy it's doing well and especially happy that Pratt is becoming a star. Also happy that it means there will likely be a sequel, just hoping that they avoid the redundancy and oversaturation trap that the previous sequels fell into.

I am not pushing any rivalry. I am talking about the RECORDS that Jurassic World is breaking, just so happens most of those records belong to The Avengers film. So everytime Jurassic World breaks a record, of course The Avengers is going to come up in my posts and the conversation because that is who they are taking the record from. Of course Jurassic Park as a franchise can't compete with the Marvel movies. Like you said this is the first film in 14 years where we get at least 2 Marvel films per year.

Also, you can keep saying what it did this past weekend is not surprising, but it is. NO ONE in Hollywood or who track the box office ever expected this. It did about $80 million more than the most optimisitc projection. I bet if I asked you before the film hit if it would gross over $200 million its opening weeked you would have laughed in my face. I wouldn't have blamed you because I also would have laughed at that idea.

Today Jurassic World broke the non-holiday Monday record which belonged to The Dark Knight. Doesn't mean I am inventing some sort of rivalry between those franchises. The Dark Knight comes up because they were the top dog for that record, they aren't anymore.

If you have a problem with me updating the Jurassic World box office and mentioning the films it is unseating, then don't click on the thread Gonzo. Easy as that.

I guess post 171 didn't happen. :idk: Again, the record-breaking is about as surprising as people getting fat from eating Dairy Queen. If you have a problem with some of us discussing such records and it's place in history regarding box office production, well, too ****ing bad. :lol:

And no, I wouldn't have laughed at that prediction. Those tracking systems are always off, especially for larger grossing movies. I stopped reading them a long time ago. One of the best things to happen is Chris Pratt becoming a star as they were filming. The marketing campaign was extremely good, reminiscent of the original (also helped that they linked their marketing to the original as much as possible, which was smart). Then you add the good preliminary reviews that showed it was not like the other sequels and lack of competition both in theaters and outside (as many viewers as the NBA Finals is getting, it's no Mayweather-Pacquiao) and again, it's not surprising. I would have guessed it would have surpassed AoU, though passing The Avengers original was surprising, even when accounting for inflation.

The Monday record isn't surprising either. People that may have been hesitant, afraid that it would be a turd like the other two sequels, found out that it wasn't, and headed to the weekday viewing (my favorite time to see most movies too, less crowded). Hell, I almost opted to go see it earlier than planned because of what I was reading. DKR was similar (though I saw that day one). Excellent buzz drove people to the theaters that may have otherwise waited. There is an opposite effect when a movie doesn't live up to the hype. I haven't seen AoU's Monday numbers, but I'd assume they fall under that category, given that movie is essentially a prelude to a far bigger set of movies in Infinity Wars and to a lesser extent, Civil War. I think it had far fewer repeat viewers too. For example, I saw Avengers (and GotG) twice in the theaters. I won't see AoU twice. Speaking of Civil War, wouldn't shock me if that outperforms AoU as well.

Sorry bubba, I'm not leaving the thread no matter how many times you suggest it. Speaking of striking a nerve, I clearly have, because I've said nothing but good things about the movie and actually agreed with you on a lot of things, and yet, here we are.

I'm a fan of summer blockbuster type movies because they are fun. The only reason I can think of that I would have struck a nerve that would result in such passive targeting would be the comment I made early in the thread about the CGI being **** in the trailer a few months ago. It was. Fortunately, they didn't make the mistake other movies do in not cleaning it up and hoping people won't notice. If I offended you with that comment several months ago, I would apologize if I cared. You'll just have to get over it. I'm not sure how many more positive things I can say about a movie I haven't even seen yet. I'm sure I'll have even more positive things to say after.

I care because it means possibly more sequels, more expansions at Universal theme parks and continuing something special I grew up with and can enjoy with my children in the future. Plus it is just fun to follow box office results and if it didn't matter why does it ever get reported? What I don't understand is why you care so much about why I care and follow it?

It is just a very strange way to talk about a movie. I would think a fan would want to talk about the movie itself - the characters, the plot, where a sequel might go, what worked, what didn't. This forum is not really good at talking about movies, but now we have to witness an argument over whether a film about dinosaurs or a film about superheroes made enough money/more money/expected money. It would be odd in any other context; two people are not going to argue over pizza restaurants based on which one had better non-holiday sales (who would even try to bring up such a statistic?).

Just because something is reported doesn't mean you need to carry their water for them. They will still make 100 more of these movies.

Who is forcing you? Are you being held against your will? You should order a pizza and leave clues in the order, I read that it works quite well.

If you would prefer to discuss the nuances of the film and whatnot, you are free to. Others would surely join in on the conversation, though they may not match your sophisticated cinephile palate.

Sophisticated cinephilia has nothing to do with it; these films are about as mainstream as they come.

The curiosity comes more from how the guy who dresses his profile as an advertisement for the film has barely talked about the film itself except for saying it was a good movie, followed by other people engaging in this box office talk. It is something I have never seen before; it is an interesting anomaly.

I talk about the movie itself other places, here I am just repeating myself and this sub forum is not all that active and engaging. FinHeaven is mostly for Dolphins talk and I have other places to talk about movie in depth. This forum and thread is pretty much a cliffs note version of my thoughts.

Again, why do you care so much about what and how I post? How does it concern you? Talk about the movie if you want. Be the one to strike up the conversation.

Discussing the business aspects is pretty common actually, for both film and TV. I never follow it with such fervor, but it is certainly worth discussing, particularly how it is calculated and compared. It may not be interesting to everybody, but neither is discussing Love & Mercy or the latest Roy Andersson.

I haven't seen this movie, but I'm going to assume the humans didn't form a war party to go after the dinosaurs that featured a guy playing a flamethrower guitar. :(

I was reading a bit about James Cameron the other day and came across this quote about Jurassic Park. It might have been in the thread already. Well, probably not.


"I tried to buy the book rights and (Spielberg) beat me to it by a few hours. But when I saw the film, I realised that I was not the right person to make the film, he was. Because he made a dinosaur movie for kids, and mine would have been Aliens with dinosaurs, and that wouldn't have been fair. Dinosaurs are for 8-year-olds. We can all enjoy it, too, but kids get dinosaurs and they should not have been excluded for that. His sensibility was right for that film, I'd have gone further, nastier, much nastier."

I can't particularly understand gloating about a movie's box office success relative to other franchises/companies but at the same time I'll admit I'm not above gloating when a movie I dislike (or hate the whole idea of) fails. To be honest though it's actually sort of amazing that any movie gets made. That they get all the way to a final cut with proper sound and even halfway coherence is a minor miracle every time it happens. Yes, even that Juggalos movie. :lol:

I FINALLY saw it last night so can comment (without spoilers): I liked it a whole lot. That said, I recognize the movie for what it is: heavily targeted at two types of people: 1) Hardcore Jurassic Park fans, and 2) Simple folks. I am both of these things, so it worked perfectly for me. While reviewers have compared it, tone-wise, to Gremlins, I actually think the he closest thing I can compare it to is the Fast and the Furious movies. It's nonstop action, horrific "this is making me dumber" dialogue, over-the-top cg, numerous references to the original movie, actors who appear stiff and wooden onscreen despite their inherent charisma, way too many subplots that are tossed aside here and there, and a constant feeling that you already know what is coming next. All that aside, the phrase I've heard from almost everyone is note-perfect...it's "dumb fun". It was a special feeling to sit in the movie theater 22 years after I had seen the original, and get that same, "Oh my gosh I'm going to see Dinosaurs destroy stuff and eat people" feeling I had way back then. I found myself smiling during most of the movie, either cherishing the feeling of wanting to actually GO to that theme park, or just laughing at the absurdity of what I was seeing. Indominus Rex isn't my favorite Jurassic Park creature...I kept waiting for the ridiculous to hit a craptacular moment with them revealing something like, "Oh we tossed unicorn DNA in there too...be careful as it can fly on rainbows"...but it could have been worse. Will I see the movie again? Oh definitely...probably 5 more times at least. With that said, here are 7 hopes for the franchise moving forward: 1) They add in some new dinosaurs. There are tons of cool dinos out there waiting to be added. 2) They bring Ian Malcolm back for the next one. NOT as a crummy lead he was in Lost World, but as the snarky side character we all know and loved in the original. 3) They continue the great work they did in this movie with glamour theme park/island shots. The thing this movie took from the original that hadn't been seen since was the fun about-face of "Wow, I want to go there so bad!"...45 minutes later..."NO I DON'T!" 4) Continue to perpetuate the inexplicable message that fat people are evil. The moment a person over fighting weight steps foot in any of these movies, the audience boos. It's completely un-PC, but you need to keep what works. 5) Amp up the over-the-top/comedic deaths. The moment the franchise was BORN was when a lawyer got eaten off of a toilet. This needs to come full circle with a wealthy, power-hungry russian magnate being eaten off of a bidet 6) Insert Mr. DNA into every movie moving forward. I love him, and he is the true star. 7) AVOID THE PREQUEL TRAP! No one wants to see how a young John Hammond played by Channing Tatum first got his flea circus off the ground and made enough money to get Jurassic Park up and running. Anyhoo, that's all I got for now, thanks for reading, and three cheers for (as Mr. DNA pronounced it) DINO-SARRRRS!

Loved that movie, though I'm looking forward to more traditional foes in the sequels.

Transformers: Age of Extinction was a resounding financial success. Jurassic World was a resounding financial success. Despite the fact that Transformers is sitting at 18% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, i guess that means the two films are comparable. You may now begin the debate.


Yeah, Feige isn't the one in here that has continuously tried to push the imaginary rivalry with every post for some strange reason. Are you really shocked that it broke records? First sequel in 14 years with nothing else like it released in between. It's not rocket science. I'm happy it's doing well and especially happy that Pratt is becoming a star. Also happy that it means there will likely be a sequel, just hoping that they avoid the redundancy and oversaturation trap that the previous sequels fell into.

Universal announced a sequel is already in the works. Which is unsurprising, given this was clearly one of the many cogs in the machine Universal is trying to build in response to Marvel's domination. So, i suppose, Marvel could be indirectly linked to Jurassic World. But the far more apt comparison would be the Fast and Furious franchise. Both were soft reboots involving sequels years after the original, both brought in new directors to give the films a different direction, and both are, of course, Universal properties. More importantly, from whats been said: both seem to value spectacle over substance.

Because of this i fully expect a certain amount of oversaturation to come. Its going to be very interesting to see how they try and keep it fresh. Whereas the car series has apparently adopted other genres, im not sure what Jurassic can do other than disaster movies. They could go into horror, which would admittedly be pretty awesome, but that would also limit their viewership. No doubt the current "theme" will be enough for the die hard fans, and they should be able to carve out trilogy from that, but they are going to have to do something clever in the near future.

I saw it and enjoyed but am I the only one who was kind of bothered by the fact that the movie took place on an island off of Costa Rica but yet every single worker was American?

Come on, Delta had a much stronger presence on screen....you eyes were always drawn to him, basically stole every scene.
