For the first time since its release back in June, Jurassic World, the latest entry into the Jurassic Park franchise, fell out of the box office top ten. That’s a run of almost two full months. At this point, the film has made more than $1.5 billion worldwide, which is tops for this year and currently sits firmly in third place all time. Though that’s an impressive achievement, it doesn’t have a chance in hell of catching Titanic at number two.

Having already made a stupid amount of money, we’re pretty close to crowning the Colin Trevorrow-directed film the box office champion of 2015, even though we still have a few months left to go in the year. There are some great movies left on the docket, but most don’t have the proverbial snowball’s chance to even come close. Still, as dominant at the rampaging dinosaur flick has been, there are a small handful of entries that maybe, just maybe, could possibly knock this monster from the throne.

Spectre
Spectre
A new James Bond movie is always going to be a hotly anticipated commodity. Even when the franchise has hit its lowest points, we still want to see what shenanigans the international super spy gets up to next—as a world we do owe him our collective lives many times over. And it doesn’t hurt that with the next installment, November’s Spectre, they’re coming off of the billion-dollar-plus grossing Skyfall.

While Daniel Craig’s future as Bond may be up in the air, he’s back for at least one more ride, battling a mysterious new villain in Christoph Waltz, who appears to be the head of the shadowy international terrorist organization Spectre. Seeing a revamped version of a classic Bond antagonist is an exciting prospect for fans. Skyfall director Sam Mendes is also back at the wheel this time around, though he’s said this is his final Bond film. With all of these pieces in play, expectations are, understandably, through the roof for Spectre. What we’ve seen thus far looks pretty damn awesome; we can’t wait to see that massive Day of the Dead opening in Mexico City. As for box office returns, on that matter we’ll have to wait and see, but however much money it makes, we’re excited for this one.
