Continuing the story of “Jurassic World” collections reported yesterday, it can now be confirmed that the movie has set the silver screen ablaze with its roaring box office collections after having achieved a much bigger landmark. It was reported earlier that Universal had estimated the movie would reach a domestic opening of $204.6 million but it seems the movie has crossed all the estimates.
According to Variety, once the final numbers were tallied, the movie’s domestic collections turned out to be $208.8 million making it the movie with the biggest opening in history. The dinosaur thriller raced past “The Avengers” who held the record to their name with collections of $207.4 million. The movie also crossed the overseas collections of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” which stood at $314 million and set a new record of $315.6 million.
Despite having stiff competition from Game 5 of the NBA finals and season finale of “Game of Thrones” on Sunday night, the day’s collections just helped boost the movie ultimately helping the movie emerging as a winner. According to box office analysts, people preferred watching the movie because of the massive collections it was garnering. The movie that opened in over 4274 theaters witnessed the biggest release from the studio with analysts predicting that the movie would make $125-135 million.
The movie as of now is the only movie to have crossed $500 million in a single weekend and has witnessed a massive debut of $100 million in China. The movie also has secured first place in all of the 66 international territories that it has released in. Looking at the performance, analysts have no doubt that the movie will easily cross the billion-dollar mark as well.
Directed by Colin Trevorrow, the movie retouched the world of Dinosaurs as Jurassic Park was resurrected. There are reports that a possible sequel is also in the making.
