THE LEGOVERSE — This summer-movie season has seen some serious box-office hits like "Inside Out," "Avengers: Age of Ultron," "Furious 7" and "Minions." None of these films, however, came close to touching the massive success of "Jurassic World."
The sequel/reboot to the successful "Jurassic World" franchise was expected to make big waves at the box office, but no one expected it to become the third highest grossing film of all time.
"Jurassic World" recently beat out "The Avengers" to take the No. 3 spot on the all-time list, but it's still about $20 million away from No. 2, "Titanic" and $120 million away from No. 1, "Avatar." As a side note, it's worth mentioning that both numbers one and two on the list are James Cameron films. I'm not a big fan of either "Titanic" or "Avatar," but you've got to give the guy credit for putting people in the seats.
Anyway, "Jurassic World" shocked everyone with its $639.5 million at the domestic box office and $1.6 billion worldwide. With all of that money, it's this video that really proved the dino flick was a success: a Lego parody.
Take a minute and a half out of your day and watch what may could very well be the best part of said day.
A little word to the wise: Spoilers for "Jurassic World" abound here, so be warned.
