Los Angeles: “Jurassic World” has become the fastest film to cross $1 billion (Rs 6300 crore) at the global box office by reaching the milestone in just 13 days.
The film has broken the record made by Fast and Furious 7 which took 17 days to reach the mark two months ago.
Fourth instalment in the Jurassic Park film series, Jurassic World has earned $402.8 million in the US alone, acquiring the feat of fastest film to reach $400 million domestic. It accomplished this achievement in 10 days.
Jurassic World had a bumper opening and earned $511 million in 3 days at the box office after its release.
The film has shattered expectations. Going into the summer, analysts expected that the movie would be overshadowed by “Minions” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron".
Now, it has a chance of being the highest-grossing release of the year, potentially giving “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” a run for its money when it debuts this December.
“Jurassic World” stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D'Onofrio, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Omar Sy, B.D. Wong and Indian actor Irrfan Khan.
