In a “close-but-no-cigar,” weekend sprint in America, Jurassic World found itself sandwiched between two Avengers movies. With a whopping $204.596 million opening weekend in America, it is the second-best Fri-Sun debut of all time, between Avengers: Age of Ultron ($191m) and The Avengers ($207m). Oh, and it also earned $511.8 million worldwide, easily eclipsing the $494m debut of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part II to score the biggest worldwide debut of all time, so I guess that makes everything better.
Now that the Oculus Rift has made virtual reality not suck, countless companies are lining up to produce ground-breaking interactive content. But the most exciting could come from Industrial Light & Magic, the special effects company behind Star Wars, Jurassic World, and countless other blockbusters.
Jurassic Park fans rejoice, the new trailer forJurassic World was released on Monday.
