The Jurassic Park franchise, is a famous collection of movies, centered on the tale of a disastrous attempt to create a theme park comprising of cloned dinosaurs. The dinosaurs escape from their confinements and cause havoc by terrorizing the human inhabitants of the park. The rights to the novel, written by Michael Crichton were purchased by Universal Studios in 1990, before it was even published and the first two movies were based on it. Universal Studios had to bid against other film powerhouses such as Warner Bros., Columbia and 20th Century Fox, to win the rights to turn the novel into a movie. The belief in the novel and its potential has been justified with Jurassic World setting records at the global box office.
