Tyrannosaurus Rex might be munching on Vin Diesel later this summer. Jurassic World, the fourth Jurassic Park film, will arrive in cinemas in China a full two days before its US debut on June 12, Xinhua News Agency reported.
Director Colin Trevorrow announced the early release of the film on Tuesday during a promotional stop in Beijing with stars Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt. The film is about dinosaurs or something. Like anyone planning to see the film cares about the plot.
The first three Jurassic Park films weren't released in China during their original cinematic runs, but a 2013 re-release of Jurassic Park 3-D earned RMB 350 million.
Furious 7, the seventh installment in The Fast and The Furious series, became China's number one box office release of all-time earlier this year, knocking summer 2014's Transformers: Age of Extinction from its perch. Furious grossed USD 325.8 million in just 15 days. Wow.
Considering that Furious not only did mad box office but also inspired super car owners to smash up their respective Ferrari and Lamborghini and land themselves in jail, we're wondering what adverse effect Jurassic might have on Beijing movie fans.
