The dinosaurs of Jurassic World are not only killing it at the park but also at the box office.
The movie is racing toward the $1 billion mark at an extremely record-breaking speed according to new reports. The Independent reports that Jurassic World is going to be getting to the coveted billion real quick. Analysts informed the publication that the movie will bring in the cash faster than any other in the past. The last movie to do that was Furious 7, and the analysts believe that Jurassic World would have crossed the billion mark on June 22.
The movie has already set one record, as it 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.
Jurassic World's commercial success has also been 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."
Jurassic World hit theaters on June 12.
