While it was originally thought to come in just behind The Avengers, the final totals for Jurassic World show it setting a new opening day box office record.
Variety reports its first Sunday was bigger than expected:
“The final numbers are still being tallied, but the dinosaur thriller has inched past â€œMarvelâ€™s The Avengersâ€ to become top dog, with a debut of roughly $209 million, according to insiders. The superhero blockbuster was the previous record holder with a $207.4 million bow. Universal initially estimated that â€œJurassic Worldâ€ would open to $204.6 million, but the adventure film had a stronger than anticipated Sunday.”
This comes after the movie set an international opening record of more than $500 million.
Jurassic Park is back people. Expect Universal to announce the fifth movie really quick.
