Based on the novels by Michael Crichton, Jurassic Park is one of the most successful franchises on the planet, having grossed over $6 billion worldwide across six different films, including Jurassic Park (1993), The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997), Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018), and Jurassic World: Dominion (2022).

While the dinosaurs steal the show, none of it would be possible without the talented cast, which features iconic performances from Jeff Goldblum, Chris Pratt, Laura Dern, Bryce Dallas Howard, Sam Neill, Samuel L. Jackson, and BD Wong.
