Jurassic World and all the images you see in this review are owned by Universal Pictures.
Directed by Colin Trevorrow
Two hundred MILLION dollars in the opening weekend!? Oh I’m, sorry that FIVE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS when you include the international box office. What exactly about this movie (other than it being a new entry in a franchise that has nostalgic appeal to multiple generations of people) could bring in that kind of cash!? Jurassic Park was never really that important of a franchise for me (only got through the first one and half of the second one) which means this movie was barely on my radar. The only thing that caught my attention was Star Lord driving a motorcycle with his personal posse of velociraptors (and of course this amazing gif). Needless to say, the movie caught my attention after everyone starting to go nuts over it, so I went ahead and saw the damn thing to find out what the fuss is about. Now big box office numbers are never a reliable indicator of quality (just look at the Transformers films) but there was still a bit of optimism what with the decent trailers and the undeniable coolness of dinosaurs WITHOUT feathers. Also, Chris Pratt.
