It may have taken 20 years, but Jurassic Park has officially become a big hitter…
Yes, the movie directed by Steven Spielberg and telling the story of a park full of cloned dinosaurs may be a family favourite, but it took the recent 3D release to knock it into this prestigious company.
Originally, on its release, the movie took $920 million (unadjusted) worldwide. But now the new 3D version – which is NOT being screened in Northern Ireland boooooooo – added another $90m , pushing it to just over the $1billion mark.
It now joins movies such as Avengers, Titanic, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, The Dark Knight Rises and Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace.
