‘Jurassic World’ Crosses $1 Billion Collections; Beat ‘Furious 7’ In Box Office?

“Jurassic World” is almost there and is fast approaching its next destination, the billion dollar mark. Soon the movie will be one of the hugely successful movies to have entered the coveted mark after today’s collections are included. Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, Irrfan Khan amongst others the movie has been running successfully taking in massive collections worldwide. Chris Pratt’s raptor training skills are being mentioned as one of the top things to see in the movie.

According to Coming Soon, producers of the movie Universal Pictures today announced that “Jurassic World” will be crossing the billion dollar mark in just 13 days of run at the box office. The movie that has been scoring big will be the second movie from the studio after “Furious 7” to cross the mark. Until Sunday, domestic collections of the movie was $106.6 million which also happens to be the movie’s second successful week at the box office with highest grossing collections. If the second week’s collections are added to the already humongous movie collections, it comes upto $402.8 million which is another achievement altogether. The movie is also the fastest to cross $400 million in just about 10 days.

Leave the domestic collections alone for a minute, the movie has also crossed $500 million internationally in just about 11 days which is another record in itself. Until now global gross collections of the movie are at $987.2 million with $584.4. million coming from overseas and $402.8 million from North America in 13 and 11 days respectively. This puts the collections just $13 million short of a billion which will be covered once today’s collections are included.

A dinosaur experiment gone horribly wrong unleashes a hybrid dinosaur that goes on a killing spree until it is contained by completely unexpected resource available at the park. A possible sequel is currently in the making and will have Chris Pratt reprise his role as Velociraptor trainer Owen Grady.
