Let’s take yet another walk down memory lane, to 1993, when the world was introduced to dinosaurs in a way unlike we’d ever seen before. Movie director icon Steven Spielberg used a massive budget to create the special effects filled blockbuster Jurassic Park. The movie was an instant success and has since become one of the highest grossing and notable movies of all time. Not surprisingly, there were 2 sequels each spread four years apart and the fan base continued to grow. Needless to say, people young and old were in a frenzy when it was revealed that a fourth installment to the franchise was set to hit theatres in early 2015. The opening weekend box office gross of over 200 million dollars proved that the fan base was still very much alive and healthy. Jurassic World, with all its hype, is this week’s headline new release along with a whopping 9 other titles. To follow is a brief synopsis of each new movie;
