    Incredible! It far exceeded expectations at the box office.

    2015 has been great to Universal in terms of Box-Office. Jurassic World, Furious 7, Pitch Perfect 2, Fifty Shade of Grey. Somebody is getting a pay raise over there.

    Boy did the moviegoing public f**k up here.  How could Jurassic World have been such a hit?  If you’ve seen the first 3 movies, you’ve got a really really REALLY good idea of what’s gonna happen in the 4th.  Goes to show you sometimes we really look stupid like we did in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen make the GDP of a small third world country.

    People knew exactly what they were getting with all those Marvel and Hunger Games movies you love to pimp. It doesn’t mean anything. People see what they like. Good try though. Dinosaurs win.

    I don’t think anyone could’ve seen Jurassic World doing THIS well. And it may even grab the #1 crown when official numbers are released tomorrow. Nevertheless, well done. And I’m glad it beat Age of Ultron, at least.

    Yeah, no one could have predicted this (well except my friend who was just making hyperbolic predictions because he’s a Jurassic Park fanboy, now I have to listen to him telling me he told me so – UGH). I suppose the signs are there, if you look hard enough. The original Jurassic Park was, at the time, the highest grossing movie ever. It’s first sequel, The Lost World, parlayed that success to score the highest grossing opening weekend ever at that time. I was aware of this, but I thought the poor reception of that film and III plus the negative buzz I was hearing about the trailers and the general oversaturation of the market with effects heavy sequels and reboots would hinder Jurassic World. But I suppose admiration and nostalgia for the original classic and years distance from the poor sequels as well as the audience’s itching to return to that spectacular world after all these years is what made Jurassic World such a bigger hit than anyone could imagine (and I’m sure Chris Pratt helped a lot).

    I think there’s a lesson to learn here. And that is that if you look close at what made JW such a hit, you’ll know that a very similar box office storm is coming in December…

    Exactly Dom. December may very well have the box office film of the year…

    Pretty crazy.

    When the movie was announced or officialy began shooting, casting, whatever, I thought it would make a little bit more than these numbers during the entire run. Didn’t think people would be so crazy to see this. Of course it’s been 22 years since the original, MANY people who probably gave the movie this much cash this weekend weren’t even alive when Jurassic Park opened, they’ve probably never even seen dinosaurs or the likes on screen except for those in that last Transformers film or Godzilla, not even King Kong which is already 10 years old. So those kids were probably super pumped. I doubt anybody expected it to go this way.

    They were ‘banking’ on JW to boost the overall box office, which up to now was just marginally ‘above’ the take last year (2.9%), which was one of the lowest in recent years.

    I’d say they’re breathing a sigh of relief, for now at least.

    Age of Ultron, for its too-long flaws, is 100x the movie JW could be.  A revoltin’ development that would be if it was the #1 weekend movie of all time.  Ridiculous.

    Paul, why? You’re quite a contradiction sometimes. I’d have thought you’d be thrilled by another, box office hit. Personally I had a blast watching this. It’s great being able to park my brain at the door and simply have a good time at the movies.

    It’s just a validation of the lack of originality in Hollywood.  Who was clamoring for this remake, and that’s basically what it is, at its center?  Isn’t it bad enough we’ve been getting remakes from the 80’s and 90’s every month?  My guess is that this will be the ultimate front-loaded movie; you’ll be seeing M. Night Shymalan-esque percentage drops starting next weekend.  Avengers was a truly special experience; all the A-1 Marvel superheroes on the screen at once.  Shit happens.  We’re so used to moviegoers getting it right that it really stings and WTF when we get snookered like this.
