There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom crosses $400 million domestically

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has proven to be a massive box office hit not just from a worldwide standpoint, but also domestically as it is crossing $400 million in it’s 41st day of release. It becomes the 15th fastest film to hit $400 million all-time.

By crossing $400 million domestically it becomes the 3rd film in the Jurassic franchise along with Jurassic Park ($402.5 million) and Jurassic World ($652.3 million) to hit this mark unadjusted for inflation. Though Jurassic Park crossed $400 million with the help of the 2013 3D re-release.

By the end of this upcoming weekend Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will pass Jurassic Park unadjusted to become the second highest grossing film domestically in the series. It is also currently the second highest grossing worldwide film in the series, having amassed more than $1.24 billion as of today.

Once it passes $403 million, it’ll be Universal/Comcast Corp.’s third-biggest (unadjusted) domestic grosser, behind E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial ($434m counting the 2002 reissue) and Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World ($652m in 2015). And if it passes the $413m gross of Wonder Woman (which seems likely), it’ll have the biggest domestic gross for any non-Disney release since The Hunger Games: Catching Fire ($424m) in late 2013. With $1.237 billion worldwide, it is already the biggest non-Disney release since Jurassic World ($1.672b) in the summer of 2015.

While Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has earned less than Jurassic World did in 2015, the numbers it has done are massive for any film. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below and on our forums.

  1. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is the BEST Jurassic Park film of all. I don’t know why Jurassic World earned more money, but it is most-likely due to the fact that it was the first Jurassic Park film in over 10 years (14, to be exact).

    1. Well, I wouldn’t say it was the BEST. “Jurassic Park” is always going to hold that title almost by default. But out of all the sequels, I think I enjoyed this one the most. It actually felt like they were trying to move the story forward as opposed to stranding some people on the islands or rebuilding the park. Also, the new dinosaurs (Allosaurus, Baryonyx, Carnotaurus, Indoraptor, Sinoceratops, Stygimoloch) were really great additions to the roster, and Michale Giacchino’s score is probably the best JP music since John William’s themes for the first two movies.

      So yeah. Not the best, but definitely up there, IMHO.

      1. New direction but with a story that couldn’t have felt more forced and that makes no sense whatsoever.
        And the score for this film was the worst.

        1. I am thinking for myself silly little boy and JP3 is without doubt NOT better than TLW. They didn’t even have a finished script for JP3 and it shows everywhere.
          TLW is far and away the best sequel followed by JW.
          JP3 and FK are the worst films in the franchise.
          Have a seat.

        2. Nonsense and you know it. JP3 is definitely not the best sequel, they had no finished script and it shows.
          Nothing tops JP and TLW.

  2. Why do numbers unadjusted for inflation matter at all? It’s like not adjusting China’s gross for the US dollar to Yuan exchange rate.

    If you compare the gross of movies released in different years without adjusting for inflation, it’s like comparing numbers in two different currencies. It’s understandable if the movies were released within 5 years of each other*, but comparing films released 25 years apart without accounting for inflation is meaningless.

    * with the understanding that the grosses are different enough.
