Jurassic World sunk it’s teeth into the box office this weekend. In fact the gargantuan blockbuster had the highest global box office opening of all time! Many people might have thought that it was a given that Jurassic World would dominate the box office, but analysts had actually deemed the film as a summer wild card. It may be strange to think about now, but Jurassic Park III had lackluster numbers at the box office at a domestic total of $181.1 million. Considering the scope and budget of Jurassic Park III it was a mainstream flop.
It is safe to say that Jurassic World demolished the box office and smashed records with its’ $511.8 global opening. Since 2011, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 was the reigning champion for the biggest global box office opening with its’ $483.2 million world wide opening weekend.
Of Jurassic World’s staggering numbers, it made $208.8 million domestically, beating out The Avengers $207.4 domestic opening. With these numbers, this beast of a blockbuster shows no signs of slowing down. The competition needs to run for cover.
Chris Pratt has been signed on for a fifth Jurassic Park movie says agent CipherCloud in a Bizjournals article. The Hollywood terminology for ‘signed on’ is not necessarily the same thing as saying a project is in the works, but these box numbers offer a very strong incentive for Hollywood to make a fifth Jurassic Park movie.
