13 Best (And 7 Worst) Movie Characters Of 2017, Ranked

2017 has been a great year for movies and there are still a few good releases on the horizon. Packed full of emotional powerhouses like Lady Bird and epic science-fiction films like Star Wars: The Last Jedi, 2017 has been a good year for critics and fans, if not the box office. Awards season is here and things like cinematography, costume design, and editing are being recognized with good reason.

The highly anticipated follow-up to the original Jurassic Park trilogy proved to be a massive hit when it landed in theaters in 2015, smashing box office records left and right. On it’s way to an insane total haul of $1.6 billion, it actually became the first film ever to hit $500 million in its opening weekend. It currently stands as the fourth highest grossing movie of all time, as well as Universal Studios’ biggest hit ever.

With numbers like that, a follow-up was inevitable. The trailer for that sequel, Fallen Kingdom, just debuted this week, teasing an even wilder adventure than the first go-round.
