Jurassic World Holds on to First, Crosses $500 million Domestically

jurassic_worldJurassic World three-peat, taking the top spot at the box-office for the third week in a row. It earned an estimated $54.2 million. It narrowly beat Inside Out which earned an estimated $52.1 million in its second week.

Jurassic World has turned into a monster of a summer movie, crossing the $500 million mark at the domestic box-office. It now stands at $500.1 million, and at the foreign box-office it has earned $737.5 million. It’s well over the billion dollar mark, the third film to do so this year, earning $1.24 billion so far. It’s the fastest any film has crossed the $500 million mark doing so in 17 days. The previous record was 23 days by Marvel’s The Avengers. The film is in first place by a long shot in domestic earnings this year and is closing in on second. There’s a chance the film will give the all-time earning spot a run for its money.

Mad Max: Fury Road continues to do well adding an additional $1.74 million to bring its domestic total to $147.1 million. Avengers: Age of Ultron also hung on to tenth place earning an estimated $1.64 million to bring its domestic total to $452.4 million.
