Jurassic Park (1993)
The original movie that launched the blockbuster franchise, Jurassic Park, was directed by Steven Spielberg and based on Michael Crichton’s novel. The movie follows a group of people who visit an island theme park populated by genetically engineered dinosaurs created by billionaire entrepreneur John Hammond. As they explore the park, they find themselves in danger as they are hunted by the dinosaurs. Jurassic Park was an instant hit and went on to gross over $1 billion worldwide.

The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997)
The sequel to Jurassic Park, The Lost World, was directed by Spielberg and released in 1997. This time, a team of experts travels to Isla Sorna, where Hammond has created another island full of dinosaurs. As they explore, they discover that there are far more dangerous creatures than they originally thought and must fight for their survival against them and Hammond’s enemies who want to capture the dinosaurs for their own use. The Lost World grossed over $600 million worldwide and is available to watch on Reelgood here: https://reelgood.com/movie/the-lost-world-jurassic-park-1997
Jurassic Park III (2001)
Jurassic Park III marked a change in direction as Joe Johnston took over directing duties from Spielberg. It was based on an original script rather than adapted from another source material like its predecessors. In this installment, Alan Grant is recruited by Paul and Amanda Kirby, who want him to guide them through Isla Sorna so that they can find their missing son Eric who is stranded on the island after his parents accidentally left him behind during a parasailing trip. As expected with any movie set on Isla Sorna, things don’t go according to plan. Grant and his new friends must fight for their lives against rampaging dinosaurs and other human enemies who want control of the island for themselves. Jurassic Park III grossed over $368 million worldwide and can be watched on Reelgood here: https://reelgood.com/movie/jurassic-park-iii-2001
Jurassic World (2015)
After 14 years away from directing a Jurassic film, Spielberg returned with this fourth installment which was set 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park III at a fully functioning dinosaur theme park called “Jurassic World” which had been built off Isla Nublar where Hammond had originally tried to construct his own park decades earlier. The new story follows Owen Grady and Claire Dearing as they try to save two brothers who have been stranded inside the park after their parents were killed when one of the genetically modified dinosaurs escaped containment and went on a rampage throughout the park grounds as well as outside it when it stowed away onboard an aircraft heading back towards mainland America with devastating consequences waiting for it there too!

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018)
Directed by J A Bayona, Fallen Kingdom marked yet another change in direction for the franchise as this time around, Owen Grady and Claire Dearing are recruited to help rescue some surviving dinosaurs from Isla Nublar before it is destroyed due to an erupting volcano that threatens not only them but also all life on earth due to its poisonous gases if left unchecked! However, things don’t go according to plan once again when they discover that some people are more interested in exploiting these creatures than saving them, leading our heroes into another deadly adventure full of thrills!
