Jurassic World to Make TV Debut on FX

Jurassic World FX

FX has secured exclusive television rights to Jurassic World, mere hours after the dino-mite thriller saw its opening weekend tallies revised up to all-around record-setting levels.

Based on updated numbers, the U.S. box office haul for the Chris Pratt-fronted follow-up to Jurassic Park amassed $208.8 million in its debut, besting previous record holder The Avengers (which raked in $207.4 in its opening weekend). Globally, Jurassic World also set records with box office receipts totaling $315.3 million, edging out Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 ($314 mil).

Earlier this year, FX secured the television rights to Furious 7 (which has grossed over $1.5 billion worldwide) and Pitch Perfect 2.

In addition to Parks and Recreation alum Pratt, Jurassic World features familiar TV faces such as Vincent D’Onofrio (Law & Order, Daredevil), Jake M. Johnson (New Girl), Judy Greer (Arrested Development, Archer), B.D. Wong (Law & Order: SVU), Nick Robinson (Melissa & Joey) and Lauren Lapkus (Orange Is the New Black).

Jurassic World will hit FX in mid- to late 2017. In the meantime, get thee to a Cineplex! It’s a charming little art house flick; like Amélie, but with more teeth and talons.

    I guess my enthusiasm for this will depend on if they air it commercial free…

    Did I mention I love Chris Pratt? Had to comment twice!! Lol. Seriously though, this was a fun movie and exceeded my expectations for a sequel.

      I just saw Jurassic Park for the first time last year, and I love CP, so I went to the midnight showing. It was so great! I didn’t love Bryce, but I thought Chris was perfectly cast.

    The callbacks to the original were fun to see.

    2017 huh? How incredibly pointless. It will be on Vudu in probably 3-4 months, redbox a couple months after…but yeah, wait two YEARS to see a cut up version on FX

    With VOD, Netflix, HBO, etc., does anyone really care any longer about when it will debut on commercial television? Seems rather pointless to brag about it.
