Jurassic World 2 might be coming to a theater near you before you know it!
The massive blockbuster hit, Jurassic World, broke records and blew the box-office away in its opening weekend.
According to Box Office Mojo, the Colin Trevorrow-directed film has already made over $511.8 million worldwide as of Sunday – an impressive figure for a movie with an estimated budget of $150 million.

Based on those figures alone, it would not be surprising if Universal Pictures confirmed at least one follow-up sequel to the Steven Spielberg-produced hit.

Actor Chris Pratt even confirmed that he has already committed himself to another Jurassic World film in a recent interview. Even though he made jokes about it, the former Parks and Recreation star did not hesitate to open up about his decision to sign up for future films in the possibly revamped franchise.
“I am. They have me for I think 38 movies or something.”
Jurassic World essentially picks up where Jurassic Park – the 1993 Steven Spielberg-directed film – left off. The prehistoric park developed and envisioned by John Hammond is brought back in a big way.

Even though Hammond’s initial attempt failed horribly, a team of mostly new characters apparently took his vision to new heights – including the creation of a brand new, genetic hybrid dinosaur as its main attraction.
Fans and critics have flocked to Twitter since Jurassic World first hit theaters, sharing their reactions and responses to seeing the return of the prehistoric park on the big screen.

Jurassic World was so so so so so good omg — :~) lil mami (@en_jajaja) June 15, 2015
With record-breaking figures at the box-office and mostly positive feedback from fans, Jurassic World could very well breathe a new life into this particular franchise that has not been there in decades.
Since Steven Spielberg is still involved with the franchise that he first brought to the big screen over 20 years ago, only time will tell how far Jurassic World can go from here.
