In 1993, Steven Spielberg made blockbuster history: He brought the sci-fi adventure Jurassic Park to cinemas. The dinosaur action is not only one of the best films of all time, it also started an incredibly successful series. Today you can see the first part on TV.

One of the best sci-fi films ever: That’s what Jurassic Park is about

A group of scientists (Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern) are supposed to inspect an amusement park with dinosaurs. When a dissatisfied developer turns off security, everything spirals out of control.

Spielberg used the special effects new standards. Even decades later, the film still seems fresh. He also created characters for eternity and included comments critical of capitalism in the blockbuster.

That’s how much the Jurassic series has grossed since part 1

After Jurassic Park was released in cinemas in 1993, it became the most successful film of its time. A massive franchise was born, which spawned a total of five sequels over the next thirty years. These are their box office results according to The Numbers:

  • Jurassic Park: $1.06 billion
  • Forgotten World: $618 million
  • Jurassic Park 3: $365 million
  • Jurassic World: $1.67 billion
  • Jurassic World 2: $1.3 billion
  • Jurassic World 3: $1 billion
  • In total, the series achieved a result of just over 6 billion US dollars. On average, a Jurassic film grossed 1 billion. The dinosaurs only weakened in the middle phase of the series.
