Jurassic World Takes A Dino Sized Bite Out of Box Office Records

Jurassic World Takes A Dino Sized Bite Out of Box Office Records
Jurassic World, the fourth in a series of Jurassic Park films, has become the highest grossing debut film of all time, both domestically and internationally. As of Monday morning, the film has grossed $209 million domestically and over $511 million globally. The previous record holder was 2012's Avengers film, which earned $207.4 million domestically.  Leading into the weekend Universal low-balled the box office estimates between 120-150 million.

Rentrak's Senior Media Analyst Paul Dergarabedian said, "This over-performed in a way that I've never seen. It broke the box office sound barrier."

The film was co-financed by Universal and Legendary.  

Universal's President of Domestic Distribution, Nick Carpou, said, "It is extraordinary. The film has resonated with audiences around the world".
