Jurassic World Had a Record-Breaking Opening Weekend

It became the first film to ever cross $500 million worldwide in its first weekend.

The Universal Pictures’ film also holds the title for top opening weekend in North America.

At $208.8 million, it just managed to sneak past the $207.4 million record previously held by “The Avengers” since 2012.

While it no longer holds this distinction, Marvel doesn’t seem too upset about it.

On Tuesday, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige graciously sent out a congratulatory tweet to the cast and crew of “Jurassic World”:

The tweet shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise.

Pratt, of course, starred in Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” last summer.

That role was a major breakthrough in his career — and a huge win for Marvel Studios. The film made over $774 million worldwide.
