‘Jurassic World’ Crushes Global Opening Record

There wasn’t doubt that Jurassic World would become one of the biggest box office smashes of the year but not to this magnitude. The fourth film in the Jurassic Park franchise took a chunk out of the box office, logging the biggest global opening weekend of all time with $511.8 million.

This is the first time in cinematic history that a movie has made a half-a-billion dollars at the box office in one weekend. Jurassic World moves ahead of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 which pulled in $483.2 million globally in 2011. Jurassic World is currently sitting pretty in the number-one spot in all 66 markets it debuted in. It will be released in Japan in August.

Of this $511.8 million haul, $204 million of that came from the U.S. where it beat out the Avengers: Age of Ultron ($191.3 million) for the highest opening weekend of 2015. This just narrowly missed the biggest opening weekend of all time which is still claimed by the first Avengers film ($207 million).

Here are the Top 10 film’s at this weekend’s box office:

1. Jurassic World $204 million

2. Spy $16 million

3. San Andreas $11 million

4. Insidious Chapter 3 $7.3 million

5. Pitch Perfect 2 $5.9 million

6. Entourage $4.3 million

7. Mad Max: Fury Road $4.1 million

8. Avengers: Age of Ultron $3.6 million

9. Tomorrowland $3.4 million

10. Love & Mercy $1.7 million
