Have Jurassic Dinosaurs Truly Kicked Marvel Superheroes Butt at Worldwide Box Office?

'Jurassic World' velociraptor kicks Iron Man ass at worldwide box office. 'Jurassic World' officially surpasses 'The Avengers' at worldwide box office Directed by Colin Trevorrow; starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Vincent D'Onofrio; and co-executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Jurassic World has officially become the third biggest worldwide box office hit in history. The Jurassic Park sequel – or reboot, as it's basically the same story with a slightly different twist – has surpassed Marvel's Joss Whedon-directed all-star superhero flick The Avengers, which broke box office records back in 2012. Of course, "officially" just ain't what it used to be – like, in the days before The Fall. So you wisely ask, "But which movie has actually sold the most tickets?" After all, that's the true measure of a film's popularity. Well, that's a tough one to answer without the studios providing accurate, precise numbers. And that's not about to happen. It always

Maria and the von Trapp family are together again! Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer and about half of the von Trapp children reunited on Thursday night in Hollywood for the 50th anniversary screening of "The Sound of Music," held at the Tcl Chinese Theater as part of the 2015 TCM Turner Classic Film Festival. While we all got to see Julie during the Oscars -- where she thanked Lady Gaga for her performance of a melody of songs from the musical -- it was great to see her alongside Captain von Trapp once again. The duo were joined on the red carpet by Kym Karath (Gretl), Heather Menzies (Louisa) and Debbie Turner (Marta). Unfortunately, none of the Von Trapp boys were in attendance. Other flashback stars in the audience included Jan and the T-Birds from "Grease," Zach Galligan from "Gremlins" and "Heidi" herself, Jennifer Edwards. The film opened 50 years ago earlier this
