Jurassic World Breaks Box Office Record With $511.8 Million Opening
Jurassic World took a ginormous bite out of the history books with a monstrous opening that broke records. The new film, the fourth in the Jurassic Park franchise, earned $204.6 million in its first week. That was more than enough to make the movie the biggest June opening of all time. It’s now the second biggest U.S. opening ever, right behind The Avengers, which remains at the top with $207.4 million. But, with an international box office of an additional $307.8 million and a total of $511.8 million, Jurassic World had the biggest opening globally in history.
Understandably, the rest of the movies this weekend earned far, far less at the box office. Coming in a distant second was Melissa McCarthy’s Spy which, as Gossip Cop reported, topped the box office last week. The film earned $16 million. Fellow former number one, Dwayne Johnson’s disaster epic San Andreas, came in third with $11 million.
Insidious: Chapter 3, the latest flick in the popular horror series, nabbed fourth place with $7.3 million. And Pitch Perfect 2 secured fifth place with $6 million.
Rounding out the top 10 were Entourage with $4.3 million, Mad Max: Fury Road with $4.1 million, Avengers: Age of Ultron with $3.6 million, Tomorrowland with $3.4 million, and Love & Mercy with $1.9 million.
