By on October 10, 2015 in ArticlesEntertainment

Today it is not uncommon for a blockbuster movie to gross more than a billion dollars, but there have only been 23 films that have ever broken the billion dollar mark. The original Jurassic Park grossed $1.03 billion way back in 1993 and its sequel, Jurassic World, made $1.66 billion in 2015.
