The 3D version of Jurassic Park has kicked off its run at the Chinese box office with an impressive $6.3 million opening day which saw it take the #1 spot in the now vital territory. That gives it the fourth biggest opening day of 2013 behind only Iron Man 3 ($19.1 million), Pacific Rim ($8.6 million) and Fast & Furious 6 ($8.3 million). Zack Snyder's Man of Steel opened just below Jurassic Park 3D with $6.2 million. The 20 year old movie has so far taken $20.7 million internationally and grossed a total of $18.2 million in North America back in April. Add this to the $970 million it earned when it was originally released and Jurassic Park now has a total of $1.03 billion. Did you guys check out the movie when it returned to the big screen earlier this year? Does this news heighten your anticipation for the planned fourth instalment? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!

What's the difference between WHAM and JAM? Nothing when it's George Michaels junk.

Sooo what. I mean, love the flick, but everyone knows about the 3D rerelease.
This just proves China is just happy that they can go to the movies more and their economy is growing.
They'll watch just about anything.
