Breaking More Records: Steven Spielberg's dinosaur blockbuster "Jurassic Park" on Wednesday became the third-highest grossing film of all time in the United States, with a take of $286.1 million, and was expected to surpass "Star Wars" Thursday night to move into the No. 2 spot, behind only "ET," another Spielberg project. It took "Jurassic" only eight weeks to surpass former third-place holder "Home Alone's" gross of $285.7 million.
