“Jurassic World” is expected to cross the $1 billion mark at the international box office on Monday to become the fastest movie ever to achieve the feat. The movie has already become the highest ever global box office opener after it garnered more than $511 million in the opening weekend.
And now, in two weeks, the fourth installment of the “Jurassic” franchise has generated a worldwide total of $981.3 million, Business Insider reported. According to box office analysts, “Jurassic World” will reach the billion-dollar mark, 13 days after it hit the big screen, the Independent reported. This means that it will reportedly surpass the previous record-holder, “Furious 7,” which reached the milestone after 17 days of its release.
The dinosaur sequel has earned $167.1 million in China, followed by the U.K. and Mexico, where it generated $59.7 million and $29.4 million, respectively, Screen Daily reported. According to Financial Express, film experts doubt whether the upcoming “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” set to release in December, would be able to beat the record of the "Jurassic World."
Meanwhile, Disney and Pixar’s "Inside Out" earned $41 million from 41 territories after its release last week, Financial Express reported, adding that the film is yet to release in many European theaters, and in China, where it will release on July 30.
"Jurassic World" comes 14 years after the previous installment “Jurassic Park III.” It is co-produced by Steven Spielberg and directed by Colin Trevorrow with Chris Pratt in the lead.
