Twenty-two years after the release of Jurassic Park, its third sequel, Jurassic World, blasted into movie theaters. The film, starring Chris Pratt, smashed box-office records, and its music scales the June 27 charts.
Jurassic World, which also stars Bryce Dallas Howard and Vincent D’Onofrio, premiered with the largest U.S. and Canadian opening weekend of all time ($209 million, June 12-14) and the biggest-ever global debut weekend ($316 million).
Jurassic World‘s score, composed by Michael Giacchino, arrives at No. 6 on Soundtrack Albums with 4,000 sold in the week ending June 14, according to Nielsen Music. Meanwhile, the first Jurassic Park album zips 24-11 (2,000; up 76 percent).
Amid the Jurassic World excitement, the Jurassic Park theme, composed by John Williams, claws its way to No. 1 on Classical Digital Songs for the first time (3,000; up 205 percent).
