The Avengers have recently passed the record-setting opening weekend Winners Badge over to Jurassic World. Normally you would expect some jealousy or improper comments from competitors but and the folks over at Marvel handled the bad news with real class. So Marvel has published a really cool cartoon drawn by Andy Park (The man behind the look of Marvel films!) to congratulate Jurassic World and the Team behind on their success.

In case you did not know it, Jurassic World made $208,806,270 in the opening weekend, just enough to overtake Joss Whedon’s The Avengers‘ $207.4 million record from 2012. The illustration features Chris Pratt‘s character Owen riding a T-Rex looking down upon The Avengers, which includes Thor, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Captain America and The Hulk. Also notice that the T-Rex is holding Thor’s mighty hammer.
If you think this is uncommon practice that studios or directors congratulate each other, no it’s not. Continue after the break to see more similar actions from the past. Continue reading Marvel’s congratulates to Jurassic World the Classy Way…
Jurassic World continues directly after the first Jurassic Park from 1993 and forgets about the two sequels. But is the new film that good to make us forget about the two other installments? Let’s have a look!
In 1993 the time was ripe: Traditional special effects with animatronic puppets from the side of Stan Winston had reached at its peak. Digital effects were finally at a quality that they are no longer perceived as foreign objects.
With this conditions Steven Spielberg hit the perfect time to send the cinema audience in Jurassic Park into a spectacular journey of the world of dinosaurs and to show them a movie in a quality they had never seen before. The out of this resulting Dino-Mania held the world in its grip for several years thereafter.
The sequels Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park 3 still remained in the shadow of the original. The audience had perhaps gotten to fast used to the CGI dinosaurs and the magic of the first park visit would not be set again. 14 years after the disappointing third part of the franchise Universal tried now to review the Jurassic Park brand again, politely ignoring the events of the two sequels which in my opinion was the right step.
We are going Back to the Island!
If you are looking forwards for next months release of Jurassic World than you might be considering pre-booking of your Tickets now. Vox Cinemas is the first one to open their systems for pre-bookings within almost all their Cinema locations. I am all in and have done my bookings already. As well we will be giving away Tickets later on for the first day of the release.

The Plot in short: Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park (1993), Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor’s interest, which backfires horribly.
