Lets Look at the Full List of Top 10 Highest Grossing Movies of 2015
1. Jurassic World
Director: Colin Trevorrow
Stars: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Judy Greer
Jurassic World is a 2015 American science fiction adventure film, the fourth installment of the Jurassic Park series. It was directed and co-written by Colin Trevorrow, produced by Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley, and stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. The production companies were Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment, also responsible for the rest of the franchise, and Thomas Tull’s Legendary Pictures. Set twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Jurassic World takes place on the same fictional island of Isla Nublar, off the Pacific coast of Central America, where a fully functioning dinosaur theme park has operated for ten years. The park plunges into chaos when a genetically modified dinosaur, Indominus rex, breaks loose and runs rampant across the island.
Universal Pictures intended to begin production on a fourth Jurassic Park film in 2004 for a summer 2005 release, but the film entered over a decade of development hell while the script went through revisions. Following a suggestion from Spielberg, writers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver explored the idea of a functional dinosaur park. Once Trevorrow was hired as director in 2013, he followed the same idea while developing a whole new script with Derek Connolly. Principal photography rolled from April to August 2014, primarily in Louisiana while also using the original Jurassic Park filming locations in Hawaii. Again the dinosaurs were created through computer-generated imagery by Industrial Light & Magic and life-sized animatronic dinosaurs built by Legacy Effects, a company created by the alumni of Jurassic Park veteran Stan Winston.
Jurassic World was released starting from June 10, 2015 in over 60 countries. The film received positive reviews from film critics, who praised it for its visuals, action scenes and musical score, but drew some criticism for its tone and writing. After a record-breaking opening weekend that had the film grossing $500 million worldwide, Jurassic World has generated over $1.6 billion in box office revenue, standing as the third highest-grossing film of all time without inflation adjustment, as well as the highest-grossing film of 2015. A sequel is scheduled for release on June 22, 2018.

Having tackled toys that talk, robots who fall in love and a rat that can cook, Pixar turns to the emotional inner-life of an 11-year-old girl in the studio’s 15th film. And, once again, they’ve created an animated masterpiece, one of those rare movies that will speak to kids and adults alike. It’s a film that will also kick those all-conquering Minions into touch.
The focus is Riley (voiced by Kaitlyn Dias), whose world is turned on its head when her parents (Kyle MacLachlan and Diane Lane) announce they’re moving from rural Minnesota to the hustle and bustle of San Francisco, where dad plans to start his own business.
Upon arriving at their new, rundown home, poor Riley must wrestle with homesickness and fitting in at a strange school – not to mention the local pizza. Plotwise, that’s pretty much it but the heart of the film lies in Riley’s emotions, Fear, Anger, Sadness, Joy and Disgust who, personified as cartoon characters, operate from a sort of air traffic control tower in her head. As Riley negotiates the difficult journey towards adulthood, each of the emotions vie for supremacy.
