‘Jurassic World’ Passes ‘Avengers’ to Become Third Biggest Film in History

Jurassic World” is now the third highest-grossing film in history, behind only “Titanic” and “Avatar.”

The dinosaur thriller has racked up $1.52 billion, pushing it past “Marvel’s The Avengers” and its $1.52 billion haul. Universal, the studio behind “Jurassic World,” has cracked the top five list of highest-grossing films twice this year after propelling “Furious 7” to $1.51 billion globally. Prior to 2015, no Universal release had ever passed $1 billion at the worldwide box office.

“Jurassic World” has grossed $614.3 million at the domestic box office, making it only the fourth film in North American history to cross $600 million mark. It has generated an additional $907.3 million at the foreign box office.

The film stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, with Colin Trevorrow handling directing duties. More than a decade separated installments in the series, as “Jurassic Park III” hit theaters in 2001.

“Jurassic World” has one remaining territory left to open — Japan, where it debuts on August 5. With ticket sales winding down in the U.S. and China, the two biggest markets for film, “Jurassic World” is unlikely to topple “Titanic” and its $2.18 billion haul or “Avatar” and its $2.79 billion bounty from their spots on the chart.

“It will have to settle for No. 3 and go home crying,” jokes Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at BoxOffice.com.
