Well, rawr: Jurassic World grubs on $1B

After premiering in theaters almost two weeks ago, global box office totals for Jurassic World have hit $1 billion.

With Sunday’s reported actuals, Jurassic World secured the highest-grossing second week at the North American box office with $106.6 million. With those sums, the domestic accumulation clocks in at $402.8 million, which is the fastest any film has reached $400 million at the domestic box office. At the international stage, Jurassic World amassed $500 million Saturday, marking the quickest climb in 11 days. To put it into perspective, it took The Avengers 14 days to Jurassic World’s 10 days to climb to $400 million domestically.

From its opening up until Sunday, international moviegoers brought in an additional $583.1 million for Universal Pictures ($161.7 million from China).

At this juncture in 2014, Hollywood’s total box office haul increased more than 6%. And there are future blockbusters on the way that will inject more money into the industry, including next month’s release of Minions and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which is scheduled to hit theaters in December.
