Jurassic World, a new continuation of the classic 90’s Jurassic Park movies, killed at the box office this weekend. KILLED! Box office reports say the movie, starring Guardians of the Galaxy‘s, Chris Pratt, bought in $204.596 million opening weekend (Fri-Sun) in America, making it the second biggest opening of all time! The Avengers holds to title with $207 million.

That weekend number includes an $82.8 million Friday number, which includes $18.5 million worth of Thursday previews. As noted yesterday, that $82.6 million Friday minus those $18.5m worth of Thursday shows leaves Jurassic World with a pure Friday gross of $64.1m. That gives Jurassic World the biggest pure Friday/opening day total ever, ahead of Furious 7 ($51.6m), Iron Man 3 ($53.25m),  Avengers 2 ($56.86m), and The Avengers ($62.7m). The film’s $69.7m Saturday is the biggest ever just ahead of The Avengers‘s $69.5m Saturday. The estimated $52.992m Sunday is second best against TheAvengers‘s $57m Sunday.

Even better, the film made $$511.8 worldwide, making it the highest grossing opening weekend in history, beating out Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part II
