Jurassic World” stomped into China with a massive $99.1 million opening, relegating last week’s box office shaker “San Andreas” to second place.

“World” opened June 10 and racked up 15.7 million admissions in five days, according to local data service Ent Group. Average ticket price was a juicy $6.30.

“San Andreas” earned $29.6 million in its second frame, but its $81.7 million total after 13 days was quickly overwhelmed by the dinosaurs.

Japanese cartoon, and another former box office leader, “Stand by Me Doraemon” was a distant third with $8.4 million, for an 18-day total of $83.1 million.

Indian comedy drama “PK” held fourth spot for the third week and added $2 million. That lifted its total to $18.8 million after 24 days. “Avengers: Age of Ultron” took fifth spot with $1.53 million. Its total stands at $240 million after 34 days.

  1. A must see if you were a Jurassic Park fan. Going to see it at the IMAX theatre next.

  2. me says:

    Dear media of the world: enough with “stomps over the competition”; “bites into the box office”; “chomps down on theaters”. For crying out loud, puns are the absolute lowest level of headline writing.

  3. So that’s $25 million for Universal – the maker and financier of the movie – and $75 million for China – the country that allowed it to be shown there. Interesting.
