Jurassic World Has The Biggest Opening Weekend And Breaks World Record

THE highly anticipated Jurassic World has roared into the box office taking over $511million (£330m) in its record-breaking opening weekend.

The fourth instalment in the Jurassic Park series became the first movie ever to make the beastly sum in its opening weekend – making it the top global opener of all time.
As well as the monumental international success, it also became the second highest domestic opener for the US, falling just short of Marvel's The Avengers which took $207.4million (£133m) back in 2012.
It has been 14 years since the last Jurassic film hit our screens.
And it seems the combination of cinematic grandeur and nostalgia have helped helped Jurassic World surpass all predictions.

Experts believed the monster movie would rake in $125million (£80m) on it spooning night.
Yet the cinematic spectacle pulled in over four times this amount.

"This over-performed in a way that I've never seen," Paul Dergarabedian, Rentrak's senior media analyst, said. "It broke the box office sound barrier."
Universal Pictures and Legendary co-financed the $150 million (£96m) , PG-13 rated film.
Audiences everywhere turned out in mass to see the film in theatres.
According to exit polls, 39% were under the age of 25, showing the massive interest a new generation as well as those who saw the first Jurassic Park over 20 years ago.
Also, audiences shelled out the extra money to see the film in the biggest format possible, with about 48% of domestic audiences opting to see the flick in 3D.

Directed by Colin Trevorrow and executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Jurassic World is the third in a series of blockbusters for star Chris Pratt, who also starred in the 2014 box office hits Guardians of the Galaxy and The Lego Movie.
"He's like Jimmy Stewart with a leather vest and muscles," Mr Dergarabedian said, speaking about the star. "He's a great modern-day action hero."
Jurassic world has overtaken The final instalment in the Harry Potter series, which took $483.2 million (£310m) in its first weekend.
