The Reading / Listening - Level 0

Jurassic World broke box office records around the world. It is the first movie to make $500 million on an opening weekend. It made $204 million in the USA. Everyone was surprised. A movie expert said: "No one saw this coming." The movie The Avengers still has the record for the most successful opening weekend in the USA.



Jurassic World was the most popular film in 66 countries. It is part four in the Jurassic Park series. Many parents who watched the first Jurassic Park in 1993 took their own kids to see Jurassic World. It also broke the record because it opened in China and in the US on the same weekend.
