Yesterday it was announced that Jurassic World had smashed the record for the biggest ever worldwide opening weekend, pulling in $511 million around the globe, and now with the final numbers being tallied it looks like the Colin Trevorrow-directed dino sequel has also overtaken The Avengers to claim the domestic crown.
Initial estimates had put Jurassic World on $204.6 million for the three days, leaving it trailing The Avengers’ $207.4 million record. However, with a stronger than expected Sunday, it’s now being reported that Jurassic World will end up with $209 million for the weekend.
Between Jurassic World and Fast & Furious 7, it’s certainly shaping up to be a stellar year for Universal at the box office!
Directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed), 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.
