Jurassic World has rung up a whopping $511.8 million at the box office in its opening week, and has also broken the record for the highest "global opener of all time" according to a Telegraph report.
The movie's commercial success is also being lauded by competitors. Kevin Feige of Marvel took to Twitter to congratulate the producers of the film on the tremendous success, particularly beating The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Feige very good humoredly celebrated the movie's success:

Paul Dergarabedian, the senior media analyst of Rentrak, a media-measurement company, spoke to The Telegraph about how Jurassic World has exceeded expectations.
"This over-performed in a way that I've never seen," Dergarabedian said. "It broke the box office sound barrier."
Dergarabedian also gave a whole lot of credit to the star of the film Chris Pratt, who has really remolded his reputation as an action star after Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World.
"He's like Jimmy Stewart with a leather vest and muscles," he said. "He's a great modern-day action hero."
Of most reviews that have come out for the film recently, we gather that the movie is definitely worth a visit to the theater, but some suggest it does not trump the magic of the original, Jurassic Park. But that being said, the movie is also being heralded as the best sequel to Jurassic Park yet. The FX work has also been lauded plenty.
Jurassic World hit theaters on June 12.
