In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, actor Chris Pratt revealed that he is signed on for future Jurassic World movies, saying "I am. They have me for I think 38 movies or something."
While he's joking about being signed on for 38 movies, it is very likely that Universal Pictures have him signed on a contract for two more Jurassic films, which would complete a new trilogy for the franchise.
Most of you who are reading this website will have now seen Jurassic World and you likely watched it on opening night, be it the 11th or 12th June. Well, the box office numbers are in, and Jurassic World has chomped through the competition and now has the third highest grossing opening day of all time, opening somewhere between $181 million - $200 million!
Domestically, The Avengers ($207.4 million) boats the top three-day opening of all time, followed by Avengers: Age of Ultron ($191.3 million). Jurassic World is assured of at least placing No. 3, bumping Iron Man 3 ($174.1 million) to No. 4. It also marks the biggest opening of all time for the month of June, as well as Universal's top showing ever, coming in ahead of global blockbuster Furious 7 ($147.2 million).
The movie also earned an international total of $130 million, which is of course climbing through the weekend.

After 14 years of waiting, Jurassic Park 4 is here!
Posted by Jack DLM - Thursday 11 June 2015 at 06:19PM - 64 Comments
After tonight, all three of us here at JurassicWorld.org will have seen Jurassic World, or should we say, Jurassic Park 4. For 14 years of our lives, we grew up alongside rumours of a fourth entry into the franchise and hoped that we would once again see these islands.
Tonight we get our chance.
I would just like to thank director Colin Trevorrow for bringing this franchise back and for creating (what I've heard) is a well thought out sequel that feels like a genuine return to Jurassic Park. Producer Frank Marshall has been getting this film together for a long time and I would just like to thank him too, for bringing this franchise back.
For everybody involved: thank you. I am so very excited to watch this film in less than three hours, and I cannot wait to hear all of your reactions too!
Be sure to submit your own review in our forum. I look forward to reading them all.
You can now pre-order your Blu-Ray/DVD copy of Jurassic World from Amazon and other retailers - the release date is set for October 19!
The film is here, and so are we. We will be here to cover the news of Jurassic World 2 when that begins and our podcasts will continue. In fact, we have some amazing guests lined up! So stay tuned for that, and I really hope everybody enjoys Jurassic World!

THE PARK OPENS IN ONE DAY!

It's official: there is only ONE DAY left until the official worldwide release of JURASSIC WORLD! It has been a crazy fun ride and tomorrow (or June 12th for those in the US) we will finally get to see Jurassic Park 4.
We would like to thank you for following our website over the production of the movie and for getting involved with our competitions, giveaways and for listening to our podcast!
I started this website in 2008 when news on Jurassic Park 4 was sparse, and now that the film is nearing release, it still doesn't feel real. I think that feeling will only kick in once I've sat down in the theatre and the Universal logo comes on. Then it's real.
Thanks again to those who follow our website and listen to our podcast. We have a lot to come in the future, so stay tuned. It's only just begun.

Jurassic Waterloo: New Photos AND a Teaser Video!

You likely saw our previous post about the Velociraptors that are now on the loose in London's Waterloo train station. Well now, we have even more to show from there, including an awesome teaser video!
How cool was that?! I can honestly say, this is some of the best marketing that Universal Pictures have done for these films. One of those Velociraptors was seen at the Paris premiere a few weeks ago, but the rest of the pack have not, and it's great to see them in Britain!
A couple of my friends also visited there yesterday and shared some photos:
Paleontology consultant Jack Horner was just yesterday in London and stopped by the Velociraptors for a couple of interview, like this one with HeyUGuys:
When asked what his favourite part of Jurassic World is, he replied "the end... you'll see". It's great to see Jack Horner so excited about his work with Jurassic World. He's fortunate enough to have been involved with all four of the films within the franchise.
There are only TWO DAYS to go until the official release of Jurassic World! How excited are you? Let us know in the comments section below, and stick to our Twitter for a live premiere video feed from the red carpet, tonight in LA.
