Two weekends ago Jurassic World opened up to a staggering $208.8 million domestic haul taking the spot for number one opening weekend of all time, toppling Avengers reign. It also smashed the box office record for number one international opening beating out Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two with $315.3 million.
With a Cinemascore rating of “A” it’s no wonder it’s knocking it out of the park (or world as the case may be) – audiences love this movie.
I had the chance to see Jurassic World over the weekend in IMAX 3D. As I sat there in my seat, soaking it all in in all of its glorious 3D stretched across a massive screen, I felt a regression occurring. All of a sudden I was 8 years old again sitting in a theater in New York City on the opening weekend of Jurassic Park.
I remember the way I felt when I saw the Brachiosaurus reach up on his hind legs to eat the leaves off the top of a large tree. It looked so real. It was like nothing I had ever seen before. I can only imagine my facial expression resembled Dr. Grant’s when he first spotted the beast.
Later when I caught my first glimpse of the Tyrannosaurus Rex I jumped in my seat, feeling as though somehow the over-sized “reptile” would step off the screen into the theater.
Since that time Jurassic Park has been in my top 10 movies of all time. Often when asked about my favorite movie I would list this and would receive a perplexed look in response. I would tell people, “Watch it again. That film is a masterpiece.” Even 22 years later that movie holds up. It barely feels dated save some computer screens and maybe Wayne Knight’s weight.
Watching Jurassic World was a very similar experience for me. I was thrilled, frightened and most of all entertained throughout the whole movie. I wouldn’t say it’s better than Jurassic Park but it is definitely the best Jurassic movie we’ve had since the first one and it’s a close second.
Chris Pratt does a wonderful job of bringing a new character to the franchise. Part Indiana Jones, part Dr. Grant, part…well, Chris Pratt. Others such as Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jake Johnson and Omar Sy each bring something to their roles. That something is familiar enough to feel like a Jurassic film but different enough to feel unique.
With a perfect blend of humor, action/adventure and frights Jurassic World deserves its record-smashing debut and I highly recommend it.
