‘Jurassic Park’ tramples box office with 2nd highest debut ever

Jurassic World - Zach and Gray and dinosaurs

1. Jurassic World – $204 million [debut week] Box office experts predicted one summer film would come close to surpassing ‘Marvel’s The Avengers’ record $207 million opening, but few expected it to be ‘Jurassic World.’ The summer stunner posted the second highest opening of all time.

Universal’s domination of 2015 continues as the studio behind ‘Furious 7,’ ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ and ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ obliterated ‘Man of Steel’s‘ previous June record of $116 million. ‘Jurassic World’ was already looking to be a real contender once it posted the third highest opening Friday of all time — trailing ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ ($91 million) and ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron‘ ($84.4 million). Worldwide it had the highest debut ever with $511 million — the first time a film crossed $500 million its initial weekend.

Its longtime prospects, specifically if it can dethrone ‘Ultron,’ will largely be determined based on its second weekend when Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ arrives in theaters.

2. Spy – $16 million [2nd week; $56.9 million] Melissa McCarthy’s spy comedy was a distant second, but had a solid 50% drop and should continue faring well in upcoming weeks.

3. San Andreas – $11 million [3rd week; $119.3 million] Dwayne Johnson’s disaster film surprisingly held up in the wake of ‘Jurassic World’ decimating the box office.

4. Insidious: Chapter 3 – $7.3 million [2nd week; $37.4 million] The horror suspense made back its budget last week so this is all profit, but it’s likely on its last week in the Top 5.

5. Pitch Perfect 2 – $6 million [5th week; $170.7 million] Universal’s other mammoth hit is closing in on $200 million and singing all the way to the bank.
