Jurassic World’ Sets Box Office Record

The 4th installment of the pre-historic flick continued where the other films left off by setting a box office record.

Jurassic World racked up a whopping $208.8 million at the North American box office over the weekend, 2 percent more than estimated on Sunday and enough to enter Hollywood’s record books as the biggest opening ever, Universal Pictures said on Monday.

According to The New York Times, Jurassic world beat out “Marvel’s The Avengers,” which took in $207.4 million over its first weekend in 2012. The film sold an additional $315.3 million overseas, or 3 percent more than estimated on Sunday.

Unlike Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park which were Steven Spielberg led flicks, Jurassic World was directed by the relative newcomer Colin Trevorrow, with Spielberg taking a back-seat role but lending a helping hand when needed as executive producer.
