Spielberg directed the first two installments and executive produced the last two.

You’ve probably heard by now that Jurassic World had one of the biggest opening weekends of all time. And 3D was responsible for a huge chunk of that. According to RealD, 3D accounted for 48% of the domestic gross and 65% of the international gross.

Jurassic World producer Frank Marshall knows his rebooted franchise has a future, even as he’s trying to take things one step at a time. “I’m sure that probably, maybe even Friday night I’m going to get that call about ‘okay, what’s next?’ I’m going to get through this one first and then we’ll talk about that.” [Collider]

Fear the Walking Dead debuts on AMC later this year. [Deadline]
