Jurassic World took the world by storm and surprised everyone with its final domestic tally of $208 million, an international tally of $315 million for a total worldwide gross of $523 million. All three are records. It also had the largest Friday and Saturday grosses of all time. Before the weekend started it was only expected to make around $120 million.
How did it exceed expectations that much? It's hard to say. Could be that there is superhero fatigue and people are just looking for something different? Or nostalgia for the Jurassic Park is that large? Could be that there hasn't been that many movies lately that people have been excited about. I don' know but what I do know is that it was a historic weekend that no one expected. Looks like Star Wars will have it's work cut out?
Do you think Star Wars Episode VIII will beat Jurassic World opening weekend? Let us know in the comments.
