Yesterday many sources were reporting that Jurassic World now had the #2 biggest domestic box office opening of all time. Now according to Variety and several other outlets it has beat that record.
While the numbers are not yet final it has surpassed The Avengers $207.4 million opening with roughly $209 million.
Jurassic World is also the first film globally to bring in more than $500 million in a single weekend.
Original estimates for Sunday were low due to box office analysts believing the film would lose some audience due to the NBA Finals and the season finale of Game of Thrones. This proved not to be the case for Jurassic World.
