Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Blu-ray

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is currently the fourth highest grossing film of the year at the domestic box office, with $384 million raked in this summer. Overseas, it also pulled in nearly $814 million, giving it a total that is just shy of $1.2 billion globally. That’s an impressive haul, even if it’s not quite as successful as its franchise-reviving predecessor. And now the movie is poised to make even more money when it comes home this fall.
