‘Jurassic World’ Tops $1 Billion in International Box Office

Underlining Universal’s stellar year, the studio’s “Jurassic World” has crossed the $1 billion milestone at the international box office.

The dinosaur action movie has become only the fourth title to reach the 10-figure mark, joining Fox’s “Avatar” ($2.027 billion) and “Titanic” ($1.528 billion) and Universal’s “Furious 7” ($1.162 billion), which crossed the threshold in April.

Jurassic World,” with $647.5 million in North America and $1.64 billion worldwide, ranks as the third-biggest film as measured by worldwide grosses, trailing only “Avatar” at $2.79 billion and “Titanic” at $2.19 billion.

Universal noted Sunday that the studio had crossed $6 billion in box office receipts with an estimated total of $3.886 billion internationally and $2.157 billion in North America. It smashed the industry record last month for worldwide grosses in a year, topping Fox’s 2014 year-end total of $5.53 billion.

“Jurassic World” had the biggest opening weekend at the international ($315 million), domestic ($208.7 million) and worldwide box office, grossing $523.7 million globally. It also holds the record for the fastest any film has crossed $1 billion worldwide, needing only 13 days.

Universal has also become the first studio to ever have three films top $1 billion in worldwide box office grosses in a single year with “Jurassic World,” “Furious 7” and “Minions.”

Duncan Clark, president of distribution for Universal Pictures International, told Variety that exceptional word of mouth had propelled “Jurassic World.”

“When we opened the film, we never expected to get to $1 billion but we knew we had the goods along with tremendous support from marketing and filmmakers who gave us everything,” he said. “It became a movie for teens and the entire family in every country.”

“Jurassic World” is Universal’s highest-grossing film of all time in Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Hong Kong, Korea, Philippines, Singapore and Taiwan. Directed by Colin Trevorrow, it stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.

Universal’s remaining 2015 slate includes “The Visit,” from M. Night Shyamalan; “Everest,” starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Josh Brolin; “Steve Jobs,” starring Michael Fassbender; “Crimson Peak,” directed by Guillermo del Toro; “By the Sea,” directed by Angelina Jolie Pitt, starring Brad Pitt and Jolie Pitt; and horror-comedy “Krampus.”
