Jurassic World‘s opening weekend may have gone way better than expected, with the newest installment to the Jurassic Park film series already breaking records.
Universal announced today that Jurassic World pulled in an astounding $209 million in the United States over the weekend, making the it the highest opening film of all time domestically. This puts the film ahead of the original Avengers movie, which brought in $207 million its opening weekend.
The worldwide box office numbers are equally impressive. The movie grossed $524 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing opener ever and taking the top spot from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2, which previously held the title for pulling in $483.2 million globally.
“This is absolutely a four-quadrant movie and is working on so many levels. The release date was awesome, and everybody stayed off of our date,” Universal domestic distribution chief Nick Carpou told The Hollywood Reporter.
When asked about a sequel, Carpou went on to say, “We’re saying if the filmmakers agree, we’d love to have another movie. But right now we are concentrating on this movie,” Carpou continued.
