Just when you thought the “Jurassic Park” franchise was extinct, “Jurassic World” goes and kills it in the box office.

The dinosaur film reached new heights during opening weekend, raking in over $208 million in the United States. It beat out “Avengers” and now holds the record for the biggest opening in movie history.


The film starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard cost $150 million to produce, but no one expected it to do this well. Most experts estimated it would make between $125 and $130 million.

“This was off the charts big in terms of how it broke out and became must see really fast,” BoxOffice.com’s chief analyst Phil Contrino told Variety.
