When the Jurassic Park franchise was officially revived with the release of Jurassic World last month, it immediately made a huge impact by scoring $208.8 million to start things off, beating The Avengers‘ opening weekend record of $207.4. Something Marvel was cool enough to tip their hat to with a congratulatory message.
Now it appears another congratulations from Marvel is in order. It’s being reported that Jurassic World has now leapfrogged The Avengers once again, this time to take the number three all-time highest grossing movie worldwide spot. The movie has made $1.522 billion, passing the former number three’s $1.520 billion. The only two movies ahead of it now are James Cameron’s Titanic, which made almost $2.2 billion worldwide, and Cameron’s Avatar, which made almost $2.8 billion. Two other movies from this year have also made it into the top ten all-time worldwide: Furious 7 with $1.5 billion, and Avengers: Age of Ultron with $1.4 billion.
The movie is also close to jumping into the third spot on the all-time domestic box office list, but it’s not clear yet if it’s also passed that. World is currently listed at $614.3 million domestic, while Avengers currently sits at $623.5 million.
Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Vincent D’Onofrio, and is directed by Colin Trevorrow.
