"Jurassic World" didn't just outrun, outroar, gnash apart and otherwise pulverize its hapless box office competitors this weekend – the dino-sequel actually just set an all-time record. How's that for a movie with some teeth?
According to Variety, the prehistoric park re-opened its ill-advised gates to the tune of $511.8 million worldwide – the biggest global take ever and the first time a film's made over $500 million in a single weekend. Ever. [Cue the super scary T-Rex growl.]
And the movie's milestones aren't just limited to global numbers, either.
Domestically, "Jurassic World" made $204.8 million – which is just the second-biggest debut in history. NBD.
But seriously, Pratt did actually offer his sincerest gratitude for all the ticket-holder lovin' he received this weekend on his Facebook page, writing, "It feels so wonderful to hear the overwhelmingly positive response. We are incredibly blessed and overcome with joy at the outcome of the movie and couldn't be more appreciative for the amazing support you've shown so far. This is bigger than all of us. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
