Jurassic World Continues to Break Records

For a film that has been (and continues) to be mired in controversy, caused longtime fans of the series to fear for it’s future and annoy paleontologists worldwide, Jurassic World is doing pretty damn well at the box office.

Not content with having the highest-grossing global opening weekend with $511 million, Colin Trevorrow’s dinosaur sequel is only the second film in history to take over $100 million in it’s second weekend in America. What’s more, its worldwide takings now stand – still less than two weeks following it’s release, lest we forget – at a staggering £981.3 million. Analysts predict that it could smash the $1 billion mark within the next two days. And if that wasn’t enough, the movie doesn’t release in Japan until 5 August, where it can likely expect further success.

IMAX have also reported that it has reached $80 million quicker than any other film, with it’s 12 days beating that of Avatar, which took 23 days to reach the same figure. Jurassic World now stands at $84 million taken for IMAX alone.

The sequel has now surpassed the original Jurassic Park, which totalled $640 million with first-run, re-releases and 3D showings all taken into account.

Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D’Onofrio, BD Wong, Omar Sy and Judy Greer.
