Jurassic World makes it four weeks on top of the US box office

Jurassic World continues to dominate the US box office and enjoyed its fourth weekend at Number One. 

The movie, which stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Jake Johnson, saw off competition from both Magic Mike XXL and Terminator: Genisys to take the top spot once again with $30.9 million over the weekend in box office receipts. 

Jurassic World has been directed by Colin Trevorrow and also stars Judy Greer, Ty Simpkins and Omar Sy. The movie is the first film to emerge from the Jurassic Park franchise since 2001 and acts as a direct sequel to the earlier movie trilogy. 

It follows Pratt's Owen, a park ranger who tries to lead a rescue mission for tourists trapped in the revamped theme park after Rex, a monstrous genetically-modified dinosaur, goes on the rampage.

With a worldwide take of $1.385 billion in box office receipts, Jurassic World is now the fifth highest grossing movie of all time, overtaking Avengers: Age Of Ultron in the process.
