‘Jurassic World’ Will Be the Fastest Film to $1 Billion

By June 21, 2015

Universal Pictures is poised to have a very impressive 2015, as we now know exactly what kind of mega-hit the fourth Jurassic Park film is shaping up to be.

According to box office analysts at Variety, director Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World will become the fastest film to hit $1 billion at the global box office, surpassing the record set earlier this year by Furious 7, another Universal release. by reaching the threshold in just 13 days. Furious 7‘s record was 17 days. With a current worldwide box office total sitting at just above $980 million, Jurassic World should be crossing the billion dollar threshold very shortly, and will likely bring the franchise total of all four Jurassic Park films to nearly $3 billion.

Reviews for the film have been generally positive, garnering a score of 71%. In our own review of the film, we felt that Jurassic World was a genuinely fun experience, but falls well short of the greatness established by Steven Spielberg’s 1993 original.

Box office response to the latest film seems to indicate that Universal will develop the franchise further with new sequels. Director Colin Trevorrow has already publicly commented saying that he will not be returning, but Chris Pratt is contracted for more films.
