Jurassic
"Jurassic Park," by Michael Crichton
Status: The Jurassic Park franchise is setting itself up for a huge revival, with Jurassic World's June 12, 2015 unveiling.

Who's Involved: Colin Trevorrow, personally handpicked by Steven Spielberg himself, has a hell of a cast working for him. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are the two heavy hitters we'll see the most of, with Judy Greer, Irrfan Khan, and Vincent D'Onofrio rounding out the roster.

Why You Should Read The Book First: While Jurassic Park has lead a healthy life as a film franchise, it's a wildly different product from the original book, and its sequel, The Lost World. For those who want more scientific background, as well as some possible plotlines Dr. Henry Wu's reappearance might follow, this is a wise book to add to your library list.

Will The Movie Be A Hit? Unquestionably. Running unopposed in its opening weekend, with little competition preceding it and only a Pixar film succeeding it, Jurassic World has no choice but to be a colossal cash haul.
