Jurassic World is officially the biggest global opener of all time.
Directed by Colin Trevorrow and Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard doing the lead, it’s hardly surprising to hear that Jurassic World is a huge hit already. The VFX-intensive sci-fi action-adventure movie has managed to rake in a whopping $511.8 million in its first week run at the box office around the globe. To give you a perspective here, the film has broken the records previously set by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows that had collected $483.2 million in the first week. In other words, Jurassic World is now the highest first-week earner of all time.
In the United States alone, the movie — released in over 4000 screens — has managed to collect around $204 million during the first-week run. According to latest reports, it is now the second-highest opener of all time at the domestic market, with Marvel’s The Avengers taking the lead with around $207.4 million.
The movie, available in both 2D and 3D, was first released in Europe on 10th June, then Australia, India, and Malaysia followed suit 11th, followed by North America on 12th. The movie also stars a popular Indian actor Irrfan Khan, who has previously acted in other popular Hollywood movies including The Darjeeling Limited, Slumdog Millionaire, ‘New York, I love You’ and more. This gigantic film has been co-produced by Universal Pictures along with Legendary Entertainment.
With Jurassic World running fully packed in theatres across the world, other releases such as San Andreas, Insidious Chapter 3, and Pitch Perfect 2 are struggling at the box office. Reports suggest that San Andreas made a mere $11 million this week, while the earnings of the other two stand at $7.3 million and $6 million respectively.
