Tentpole dinosaur movie “Jurassic World” has surpassed Marvel’s superhero flick, “The Avengers” ($1.520 billion), on the worldwide box office gross chart to become the third highest grossing movie of all time. “Jurassic World” has garnered $1.522 billion at the global box office and is expected to add more income before it leaves theaters.
The movie comes right after James Cameron’s monstrous hit, “Titanic“, which became the second highest grossing movie with $2.186 billion. Meanwhile, “Avatar” is still the highest grossing movie of all time with $2.788 billion. Considering their total gross, it seems to be hard or even impossible for “Jurassic World” to surpass or to be at the same position with the two big movies.
“Jurassic World”, directed by Colin Trevorrow, has earned $614.3 million domestically, becoming only the fourth film to ever cross $600 million. The movie’s overseas haul is $907.3 million. Meanwhile, “The Avengers” earned $623 million in North America theaters.
Following the massive success of “Jurassic World”, it is reported that a sequel, which will also become the fifth installment of “Jurassic Park” movie series, is underway. However, this time Universal Pictures will not work together with director Colin Trevorrow.
