Move Aside Avengers, Jurassic World Becomes 3rd Biggest Film Ever


This year has been downright huge in terms of box office numbers. Furious 7, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Jurassic World have all entered the top ten highest grossing films of all time (inflation excluded), but it’s the one with Chris Pratt training raptors that has become the highest grossing film in the past six years.

Jurassic World has earned a whopping $1.522 billion in worldwide box office receipts so far, according to THR, which puts it past the $1,519.6 billion earned by Marvel’s The Avengers and pushing the hero-fest into fourth position. The massive take officially makes Jurassic World the third highest grossing film ever made, behind Avatar ($2.7 billion) and Titanic ($2.1 billion).

The film stomped past expectations in the U.S. by taking a huge $204.6 million home opening and a $302.7 million opening worldwide, making it the first film to bring in over $500 million in one weekend alone. Unsurprisingly, it didn’t take Jurassic World long to also become the fastest film to pass the $1 billion mark.

So, by the laws of Hollywood, expect sequels, sequels, sequels.

The only question now: How long will Jurassic World last in third position? Let’s not forget, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is but five months away.
