Forgive me.. I may just be coming off the high of an amazing summer movie experience. Or just too much movie theater popcorn, with extra unhealthy butter. That stuff will kill you.

But JURASSIC WORLD may have been one of the best films I have seen in years.. it reigns high in the action department. The fun department. the laughter.. the homages to the amazing original 1993 film that inspired me as a 13-year-old in a movie theater..

JURASSIC WORLD has every single thing that a summer box office buster should have.
And with it.. a record.

JURASSIC WORLD can now boast that it has over $500 million .. in one weekend.. all over the globe.

The AP reports:

“This over-performed in a way that I’ve never seen,” Rentrak’s Senior Media Analyst Paul Dergarabedian said. “It broke the box office sound barrier.”

So why?

I would suggest that families, parents, people like me, who were stunned in the early 90s with the amazing original film, are in part passing that love of film and action to their own children. A new generation is seeing JURASSIC WORLD, with their parents.. and grandparents. That is how the arm-to-arm theater I was in tonight looked. A mixture of ages, from young to old.. all sitting with fascinated eyes staring at the screen. Amazed at the sights, dreading the plight.. and applauding the might of the secret victor at the end of the film..

This movie had what I expected. And more..
…The movie theater butter is secreting from my scalp.. But my brain is going to be filled with the images of JURASSIC WORLD for years to come–the same effect the original had.

A record setting box office opening.
Something that analysts have never seen before.

And perhaps won’t again.
Experience the moment in a theater, should you get the chance. It’s a visit to the WORLD you will not regret..

What if the strike ends and no one cares?
