The movie “Jurassic World” destroyed the box office Friday, with an estimated $82.8 million in ticket sales, which is way more than was expected. Prior to this movie, the biggest movie of the year was, “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” and it made $84.5 million on its opening day in May. “Jurassic World” opened in over 4,200 theaters this weekend. If the movie keeps on doing well, it would become the third largest U.S. movie opening weekend in history, only behind the 2012 and 2015 “Avengers” films.
The Universal movie would also set a new record for June by becoming the month’s biggest movie opening weekend ever, passing the “Man of Steel,” which made $116.6 million in 2013. The film has also done well internationally, as it’s made a total of $130 million with $60 million outside the U.S. on Friday. That would be the most revenue Universal has ever made on a Friday internationally.
