Jurassic World Scores Third Biggest Opening Day in the History of Box Office

The sequel earned a mammoth $82.8 million on Friday and is heading for a $200m plus opening weekend.

Jurassic World ruled the domestic box office on its debut on Friday.

The fourth and the latest sequel nabbed a mammoth $82.8 million on Friday, making it the third biggest debut in the history of box office.

“Avengers: Age of Ultron” firmly holds the second spot with $84 million while “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2” racked in $91 million in 2011, becoming the highest grossing film on its opening day. 

The numbers also include $18.5 million from the limited showings on Thursday night. If that amount is taken away, the film actually earned $64.1 million on Friday which makes it the biggest opening day of all time, leaving behind both the Avengers films earning $63 and $57 million based on the numbers of Friday alone.

Jurassic World is now on track to have a whopping debut weekend of more than $200 million. If it remains consistent with the initial projections, the film is expected to have the highest opening weekend of this year so far. It will likely surpass “Avengers: Age of Ultron” with $191 million and “Furious 7” which earned $147 million on domestic opening weekend and could become the No.2 opening of all time, behind only  2012 “Avengers” ($207 million).

Jurassic World, starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Vincent D’Onoforio, is doing great at foreign box office as well. The film has grossed more than $130 million across 66 international markets since it international release on Wednesday. The sequel is reportedly placed at N0.1 spot on every international market including Russia, France and China where it has earned $50 million in three days.

If the numbers of foreign box office combined with domestic, the film has already generate $212.8 million worldwide, given on the budget of $150 million.
