“Jurassic World” Had the Second Biggest Opening Ever with $204.6 Million

 

“Jurassic World” was estimated to make about $135 million this weekend, which would have been great.  But it ended up pulling in $204.6 million . . . which was close to a record. It was the second-best opening weekend in HISTORY, behind “The Avengers”, which made $207 million in its opening weekend in 2012.  “Jurassic World” did set the record for highest worldwide opening of all time, with $511.8 million. The original “Jurassic Park” opened with a mere $47 million in 1993 . . . “The Lost World:  Jurassic Park” opened with $72.1 million in 1997 . . . and “Jurassic Park 3” opened with $50.8 million in 2001.
