After shattering domestic and global opening records last weekend, Universal’s dinosaur blockbuster Jurassic World has pushed its worldwide gross to an astonishing $981 million after just 12 days on release around the globe. It should surpass the $1 billion mark tomorrow, which would exclipse the record set by fellow Universal release Fast & Furious 7 earlier this year when it reached that milestone in 17 days.
Domestically, Jurassic World retained the top spot this weekend, adding an extra $102 million and fending off competition from Pixar’s Inside Out (which opened in second with $91 million – the highest ever opening for an original film). The Colin Trevorrow-helmed sequel has earned $398.23 million Stateside, and will hit $400 million tomorrow, its eleventh day of release in North America, making it the fastest film to do so (The Avengers holds the current record with 14 days).
Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy), Bryce Dallas Howward (The Help), Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil), Omar Sy (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Irrfan Khan (Life of Pi), Jake Johnson (New Girl), Ty Simpkins (Iron Man 3), Nick Robinson (The Kings of Summer), B.D. Wong (Jurassic Park) and Judy Greer (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes).
