This week marks the 22-year anniversary of one hugely successful film's release and is also the release of that franchise's newest installment: "Jurassic World." While the second and third installments of the "Jurassic" franchise were relative flops, the fourth film is predicted to earn big during its opening weekend.
But "Jurassic World" may find it difficult to stack up to the overwhelming success of the franchise original.
"Jurassic Park" grossed $1,038,812,599, according to Box Office Mojo, which tracks statistics for the film industry. This was enough to surpass Spielberg's "E.T." as the biggest hit movie of all time, a record it held for nearly five years, until "Titanic" was released. "Jurassic Park" ultimately cost $63 million to make and another $65 million to market.
