The movie’s opening in China was the fourth-biggest in that country this year.”Iron Man 3” made $19.1 million its first day.

It had grossed $970 million worldwide in 1993 when it was first released.

That was a record as the highest-grossing film of all time until 1997’s “Titanic”. The film had two sequels. In 1997, “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” and in 2001 “Jurassic Park III” were made. Spielberg did not direct the third film. “Jurassic Park” starred British director Sir Richard Attenborough, Sam Neill, and Laura Dern
