'Jurassic World' Thunder(lizard)s to $1 Billion International Box Office

As if there were any doubt left in your mind as to the fascination the world has with dinosaurs, the global box office take of "Jurassic World" should answer your question -- people everywhere love them.

Universal Studios, which has already seen record-setting numbers all year long, added another milestone to its 2015 over the weekend as the latest installment in the franchise crossed the $1 billion mark at the international box office. The film is now the fourth ever to cross the mark in international ticket sales, joining "Avatar," "Titanic" and "Furious 7." With a North American gross of $647.5 million, the dino-fueled adventure now stands at $1.64 billion worldwide.

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are both scheduled to return in 2018 for the next installment, with Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly writing the script. Trevorrow is not expected to direct, and will instead serve as an executive producer alongside Steven Spielberg, who directed the first two entries in the “Jurassic Park” franchise.
