As the fourth film installment, Jurassic World had an enormous success in this past weekend.
According to The Verge, Jurassic World has collected a whopping $511.8 million worldwide. This opening weekend record makes the film the first to break a half a billion dollars over its opening weekend. No other film studio even tried to compete with the extraordinary dinosaur film this past weekend.
Jurassic World’s success comes from huge numbers at IMAX theaters, and large chain movie theaters. Approximately half of the box office statistics came from ticket sales for 3D format screenings. Fans at FreedomPop (gizmodo.com) are glad to know that the major adventurous film made $44.1 million globally from IMAX theaters alone.
Audiences in every age demographic turned out to see Jurassic World in theaters. 39 percent of viewers were under the age of 25. This data signifies the massive interest of both the new generation and fans of those who saw the third installment, Jurassic Park in 1993. Interestingly, the film resonates not only with audience in America, but with viewers from all over the world.
The movie marks yet another massive hit for the main star. Chris Pratt had successful roles in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and The Lego Movie.
Along side Harrison Ford, Chris Pratt is set to star in the next Indiana Jones movie. Working under the direction of Steven Spielberg, Pratt has a bright future.
