Dinosaurs assemble! Universal Pictures returned to the world of prehistoric action this summer with Jurassic World, a simultaneous sequel and reboot of the popular film franchise started by Steven Spielberg in 1993. The film has been a runaway hit, spending a few weekends at #1 (which isn’t easy in today’s crowded summer release calendar), and now it’s officially even bigger.
Today, Jurassic World officially passed The Avengers on the worldwide box office gross chart to become the #3 highest grossing movie ever. The only two films ahead of Jurassic World are James Cameron’s monstrous hits, Best Picture winner Titanic at #2 and sci-fi spectacle Avatar at #1.

Before Jurassic World even hit theaters, it was already getting spoofed online with a completely wacky edit of the trailer, complete with velociraptors riding motorcycles alongside Chris Pratt (don’t forget you can bid to win that motorcycle starting July 23rd).
And now that the sequel has been unleashed, it’s time for the entire preceding Jurassic Park trilogy to get a flashy makeover to be more in tune with Jurassic World. More specifically, everyone will now be wearing high heels. And I do mean everyone.

This past weekend, Jurassic World crossed yet another massive blockbuster milestone by hitting $600 million domestic, putting it at #4 on the all-time domestic box office list, with an eye towards passing up The Avengers at #3 before it leaves theaters.
But if you’ve seen Jurassic World enough in theaters, maybe you’d like to bring a piece of the movie home with you. No, sadly you can’t have dinosaurs as pets yet (hasn’t the movie shown you that’s a bad idea anyway?), but you can get your hands on Chris Pratt’s motorcycle that takes him cruising alongside his raptor friends, because it’ll be up for auction on eBay this week.

Now Universal Studios Hollywood is launching their version of Raptor Encounter, but this is more of a Jurassic World-themed meet and greet. Hit the jump to check out video of the Universal Hollywood Raptor Encounter.

With summer passing by, the buzz surrounding Jurassic World has died down a bit, but though the film keeps breaking box office records. A new generation of kids has been wowed by dinosaurs on the big screen while fans of the original Jurassic Park have also been fairly impressed by the sequel, and both of those groups wants toys from the franchise.
While there are already official LEGO sets out there for Jurassic World, they’re not exactly anything to write home about. Some of the LEGO sets feature vehicles that don’t even appear in the movie, and the dinosaur figures leave something to be desired, too. That’s why one fan has created a couple LEGO Ideas projects delivering a much better LEGO version of the Indominus rex, as well as a throwback LEGO set for the Ford Explorer from the original Jurassic Park.
