Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Box Office

Jurassic World raked in a huge $208 million in the summer of 2015, landing one of the best opening weekends of all time (the only non-Disney distributed title in the top 10). That means Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom had a lot to live up to. But the sequel had a satisfying debut with the fourth biggest opening weekend of the year, and Universal’s second biggest debut ever, coming in behind only Jurassic World.

second half of jurassic world fallen kingdom

When the film he was reviewing would demand it, the late Roger Ebert would retell an old story he’d once heard. It was about a child prodigy, gifted at playing the piano, who was lucky enough to meet one of the old masters to perform. And so he did, skillfully getting every part of a famously tricky composition correct in his performance. When the child finished, the old master patted him on the head and said, “You know the notes. One day, maybe you will know the music.”

That’s a line that’s hard to ignore when watching the chaotic Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the second new film in the franchise that knows the notes without getting any of the music correct. This movie is chock-full of references to Steven Spielberg’s modern classic, all of which are simply reminders that this material has been done much better before.

Jurassic Doritos

When I woke up this morning, I didn’t think I would be getting a massive Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom crate sent to me as a totally insane cross-promotion from Doritos. But here we are.

Doritos has teamed up with Universal Pictures to unleash what they call an “experiment gone horribly right.” Life found a way, and the two companies have unleashed what they are calling Jurassic Doritos. These are Doritos that are 18 times the size of your average Doritos chip, and they even come housed in an extremely limited edition dinosaur egg. This might be the most bonkers promotional item we’ve ever seen. Check it out below. Read More »
