‘Jurassic World’ Stomps to Record Debut
The dinosaurs chomped their way to $511.8 million. While reviews were mixed for the franchise’s fourth outing — raves for roars, snores for human drama — it’s the first time a movie has topped $500 million in one weekend. In the U.S., it raked in $204.6 million, taking second place for opening weekend gross behind The Avengers’ 2012 debut of $207.4 million. The solid showing — along with star Chris Pratt signing on for more — means fans will likely see their favorite dinos on the silver screen again.
