‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Passes $1Billion at Worldwide Box Office
Dinosaurs, and dinosaurs and more dinosaurs, oh my! The long awaited sequel to the 2015 hit and the 5th installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was unleashed in theaters a little over 2 weeks ago and just crossed the $1 billion mark worldwide, giving Universal Studios their 7th film to reach such an achievement.
It was the No. 1 film overseas for four weekends straight and held the global spot of No. 1 for three weeks and was No. 1 in North America for two. Fallen Kingdom is the third 2018 film to pass 1 billion globally and the first non-Disney film to do so.
The Jurassic Park franchise is the 8th biggest franchise of all time currently sitting at $4.7 Billon and behind Fast and Furious (also owned by Universal) which currently sits at $5.1 Billion.
A third film has already been announced with a release date being set for June 11, 2021, and Trevorrow returning to direct. It is not yet known which stars will be returning as well.
