The Take: $181 Million
Was there a Jurassic Park 3 book?: Nope after Jurassic Park 2, they stopped pretending these movies were based on Michael Crichton novels.
Why you should see it: This is not a great movie, but it is much improved after JP 2. It is basically just 90 minutes of running from new dinos with a high body count. This time the Spinosaurus is introduced and presented as tougher than T-Rex. Also, the pterodactyls finally get a chance to terrorize. The always scary raptors have now developed the ability to talk to each other, so they are supposedly tougher than ever, but only if you steal their eggs. Its not too long a movie, and is worth checking out for fans of the original. Sorry, no chaos theory in this one. But also, not lame chase through San Diego either.
