jurassic-world-trailerWhile it was originally thought to come in just behind The Avengers, the final totals for Jurassic World show it setting a new opening day box office record.

Variety reports its first Sunday was bigger than expected:

“The final numbers are still being tallied, but the dinosaur thriller has inched past “Marvel’s The Avengers” to become top dog, with a debut of roughly $209 million, according to insiders. The superhero blockbuster was the previous record holder with a $207.4 million bow. Universal initially estimated that “Jurassic World” would open to $204.6 million, but the adventure film had a stronger than anticipated Sunday.”

This comes after the movie set an international opening record of more than $500 million.

Jurassic Park is back people. Expect Universal to announce the fifth movie really quick.
