Box Office Breakdown: Summer 2015

Preface

  • Hello, hello everybody!
  • So I’m not a huge numbers guy.
  • I’m good at math but it isn’t fun to do…
  • But this summer, there were some really impressive records that were set or broken or both at the domestic and worldwide box office that I want to talk about.
  • Some of them could merit their own individual posts and others are smaller, so I decided to just summarize them all in this ‘end of summer’ breakdown post.
  • And these numbers are all subject to change, but as of August 25th or so, this is what we got.
  • And I’ll have my Top 10 (yeah, there’s a few more than last year…) Most Anticipated of the Fall coming at you guys real soon too.
  • But let’s talk numbers!

Jurassic World SPOILER-FILLED Review

Preface

  • Spoiler Alert!
  • Okay, if you guys haven’t yet seen Jurassic World (which seems impossible seeing how much it made opening weekend) then this post is filled with spoilers.
  • Usually I’ll say, “hey read my Spoiler-Free Review then check out the movie then check out this review.”
  • BUT instead, you can still do that if you really want to savor the experience, or you could stay here and read a full Spoiler-Filled Review.
  • By that I mean, Jurassic World wasn’t the greatest movie in the world, so you could just read some of the particular aspects I had trouble with and still go into the movie knowing that and having a good time.
  • Either way, if you’ve seen the movie or not, we’re going into Spoiler Territory from here on out!

  • I’m a fan of the first movie but I haven’t seen the second movie and have only seen snippets from the third movie.
  • The trailers for this got better and better though so I was getting really excited for Jurassic World as its own standalone movie and sequel to Jurassic Park.
  • And I can successfully say, without a single doubt that well… I’m a little underwhelmed…

Premise

  • So Jurassic World is the fourth Jurassic Park movie set 20 years or so after the events of the original Jurassic Park.
  • And now the park has been officially and rebranded as Jurassic “World”.
  • But tourists are kinda used to all the dinosaurs there so Bryce Dallas Howard’s character who kinda runs the park is in the process of introducing a new, genetically-modified, stronger dinosaur to wow people!
  • But of course, things are going to go awry when it gets out…
