      Yeah, I still do not get why this particular movie did so well. I have heard so-so things about it. Other than being about dinosaurs and having Chris Pratt in it I am not sure what it has going on with it different than the other JP movies.

    That's all that's necessary for it to do this well. Chris Pratt is the current Hollywood golden boy, and dinos are always awesome.


Even with golden boys, would that alone account for a ~$50 million boost? Seems that we have had those in blockbusters before and it helps the bottom line but not necessarily that much. People really wanting a dinosaur movie more than expected I guess, I think Pratt helped the cause but only so much.

What makes you think I consider Pratt responsible for more than 50 million of it? ;\) He's just icing.

Seriously, I think people (globally) have been ready for a new Jurassic movie for quite some time. Dinosaurs will always be much more popular than superheroes. They have truly universal appeal, transcending gender, religion, culture, subculture, counterculture, politics, nerdism, etc. There probably isn't a person on Earth that can't appreciate dinos. I would not be surprised if there were Bushmen in Africa wanting to see Jurassic.

Not to discount Pratt too much, because he's earned his stardom.
