'Jurassic World' velociraptor kicks Iron Man ass at worldwide box office. 'Jurassic World' officially surpasses 'The Avengers' at worldwide box office Directed by Colin Trevorrow; starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Vincent D'Onofrio; and co-executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Jurassic World has officially become the third biggest worldwide box office hit in history. The Jurassic Park sequel – or reboot, as it's basically the same story with a slightly different twist – has surpassed Marvel's Joss Whedon-directed all-star superhero flick The Avengers, which broke box office records back in 2012. Of course, "officially" just ain't what it used to be – like, in the days before The Fall. So you wisely ask, "But which movie has actually sold the most tickets?" After all, that's the true measure of a film's popularity. Well, that's a tough one to answer without the studios providing accurate, precise numbers. And that's not about to happen. It always »

"Jurassic World" has been the surprise hit of the year, dominating at the box office and smashing the record for the biggest opening ever. This week, the film has surpassed "The Avengers" to become the third highest-grossing movie of all time with earning of $1.524 billion. It's only behind "Avatar" and "Titanic." It's not surprising that Universal Pictures is developing a sequel. And now comes word that the studio has set that sequel for a June 22nd, 2018 release. It's also being reported that Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are reprising their roles. "Jurassic World" director Colin Trevorrow is writing the script, but he isn't expected to return to direct. Instead, Trevorrow is in talks with Disney to to helm one of the "Star Wars" installments. »
Jurassic World 2 has been given the green light by Universal Studios. The sequel to this year’s biggest hit will also see the return of Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. Jurassic World 2 is coming in 2018
We reported yesterday that Jurassic World has become the third biggest film of all time, surpassing The Avengers and its sequel, and the seventh Fast and Furious movie, so it was just a matter of time before executives made the decision for a sequel to make a bow, and now it will happen in 2018.

A fifth Jurassic Park movie has been confirmed, as well as who's going to be returning to star in it...
Given that Jurassic World has become the third biggest grossest film of all time over the last few days, with a box office total in excess of $1.5bn, it's come as a surprise to absolutely nobody that Universal has finally confirmed its sequel.
Jurassic World 2, or Jurassic Park 5, or whatever it ends up being called, will arrive in cinemas on June 22nd 2018. And lest you be wondering whose story it's going to be picking up, it's already been confirmed that both Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are returning for the new movie.
Considering it’s now the third highest grossing movie of all time, I don’t think it will surprise anyone that a sequel to Jurassic World is on the cards, with a release date set for June 22nd 2018. Director Colin Trevorrow has previously said he won’t return to direct any possible sequel, but he will be back to pen the script with co-writer Derek Connolly. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will reprise their roles (hopefully doing away with The Lost World’s problem of following a completely new characters almost identical to the originals) from this Summer’s monster hit, and while we don’t know the story as of yet, it’s a safe bet to assume (spoilers ahead, for that one guy who hasn’t seen Jurassic World) that surviving evil scientist B.D. Wong and his dinosaur splicing ways will factor into it in some way. »

One of the biggest dangling threads in "Jurassic World" is the fate of Dr. Henry Wu. I thought it was fun casting to bring B.D. Wong back for "Jurassic World," but when I saw the film, I was surprised by just how much screen time they gave him and how clearly he's turned the corner from "bright guy hired by Hammond to do something fantastic and ethically questionable" to "mad scientist screwing his theme park bosses while coming up with some sinister applications for his work." What surprised me more was that they let him live. After all, "Jurassic World" is unafraid to kill even the most peripheral character in violent and preposterous manners, so why wouldn't they kill the man responsible for creating the just-plain-evil dinosaur that's running around eating everyone? The obvious answer is that they still need him, and sure enough, "Jurassic World" makes it clear that Dr. »

The follow-up to Jurassic World, which has amassed more than $1.522bn at the worldwide box office and this week became the third biggest release in history, will open on June 22, 2018.
Universal did not say who would direct the film. Frank Marshall will reprise his role as producer. »

With Jurassic World now only $9 million shy of becoming the third-highest grossing domestic release of all-time -- a spot currently occupied by The Avengers -- it was really only a matter of when, not if, a sequel would be announced. That announcement was made official today, as The Hollywood Reporter states a sequel to Jurassic World will hit theaters on June 22, 2018. Stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will return in their respective roles, while Jurassic World helmer Colin Trevorrow and co-writer Derek Connolly will take a first crack at the script. The Hollywood Reporter notes Trevorrow isn't expected to come back and direct the sequel -- which we already knew -- but will instead serve as a writer and an executive producer alongside Steven Spielberg. No word yet on the story, but I'm sure Trevorrow and Connolly will figure something out before that release date rolls around, no matter how thin. »

There's always more. We knew this was coming, it was just a matter of time. Universal has announced a release date of June 22nd, 2018 for the currently untitled Jurassic World sequel. They don't even have a director either, since Colin Trevorrow said he wouldn't be back again after Jurassic World. However, it's likely the story will continue with Chris Pratt's raptor tamer character Owen. Beyond that, details are sparse because the movie is three years away; they just wanted to set a deadline for when it has to be out in theaters (before the buzz dies off). Based on the box office, no one should be worried that it's going to make a boatload of cash as long as they find another director who can wrangle big ass dinosaurs. We'll be waiting. Here's the tweet from @ERCboxoffice confirming the release date for the upcoming Jurassic World sequel: We all »

Just one day after Jurassic World became the third highest-grossing movie of all time at the worldwide box office, Universal Pictures has officially announced that Jurassic World 2 is happening. Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are set to reprise their roles as Owen Grady and Claire Dearing in the sequel. Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow is returning to co-write the script with Derek Connolly, but Variety's report doesn't mention if he is directing the follow-up as well.
The news of Chris Pratt returning isn't particularly surprising, since the actor revealed last month that his contract has him locked in for more sequels. Colin Trevorrow stated in a May interview that he would still like to be involved in Jurassic World 2, but not as a director, so it's possible that Universal Pictures are currently searching for a new filmmaker to take the helm, as he writes the script with Derek Connolly. »
A day after Jurassic World officially became the third highest-grossing film of all time – surpassing The Avengers – Universal has set the date for a sequel to the blockbuster. The follow-up is set to open 22 June 2018.
Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow isn’t set to return to the director’s chair (no director has been confirmed yet), but he will co-write the screenplay with Derek Connolly (Safety Not Guaranteed). Actors Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard have both signed on to the sequel, with Steven Spielberg again executive producing through his Amblin Entertainment banner.

Jurassic World has been a box office smash as it became only the fourth movie in history to hit the $600 million mark in North America and just yesterday passed the $1.52 billion worldwide haul earned by The Avengers in 2012. Unsurprisingly, a sequel has now been announced by Universal, and it will be released on June 22nd, 2018. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are both confirmed to return, while Steven Spielberg will executive produce. Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow is going to co-write alongside Derek Connolly, but there's currently no word on who will take the helm of this sequel.

These are the 15 best movies of 2015 so far: But do you agree with the list?
An announcement of a sequel comes as little surprise, given that Jurassic World is the highest-grossing movie ever distributed by Universal.
Jurassic World also currently sits as the third highest-grossing movie of all-time, having recently overtaken The Avengers. It sits behind only Avatar and Titanic.
Released in mid-June, the dinosaur epic also toppled »
Just yesterday, Jurassic World surpassed The Avengers to become number three at all time box office, just behind Titanic and Avatar. So it's no surpise that Universal is anxious to get a sequel out there, and today they've revealed when audiences will see it.
To be entirely honest, I'm surprised that it's taken this long to get a Jurassic World 2 release date from Universal Pictures. Breaking box office records left and right, it seems like a no-brainer that we'll be seeing a sequel to the franchise reboot. Now, we know exactly when: June 22, 2018.
It's still a few years out, but Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will be returning to reprise their roles from the film, and Colin Trevorrow will be writing the script with Derek Connolly. Obviously, at this point, there's no telling what the story will entail, but surely the repercussions/fallout of Jurassic World will come into play, »
