‘Jurassic World’ Dominates Box Office, Chris Pratt Confirms ‘38’ Sequels
Universal's "Jurassic World" was the second-biggest opening weekend of all time at the box office this weekend, behind only Marvel's "The Avengers.”
The fourth installment of the “Jurassic Park” franchise earned over $500 million globally, with $204 million of that coming from domestic box office alone. Star Chris Pratt chatted with Entertainment Weekly about why he signed on to the successful dinosaur-centric flick, and whether he would be back for more installments.
“I am,” Pratt told EW. “They have me for I think 38 movies or something.”
“It feels so wonderful to hear the overwhelmingly positive response," said Pratt on his Facebook page. "We are incredibly blessed and overcome with joy at the outcome of the movie and couldn't be more appreciative for the amazing support you've shown so far. This is bigger than all of us. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
Pratt's famous friends congratulated the star and the movie's success throughout the weekend on Twitter, including “Avengers” actor Jeremy Renner, who wrote: “Wow @prattprattpratt congrats on an amazing opening weekend my man #JurassicWorld.”
