The studio has set a new record in reaching the benchmark.

Universal Pictures' 2015 keeps getting better and better.

The Jurassic World studio has broken another industry record, passing $5 billion at the worldwide box office faster than any other studio has ever reached that milestone in any year.

The big success of Jurassic World, Pitch Perfect 2, Furious 7, Fifty Shades of Grey and the recent release Minions has earned the studio $1.709 billion domestically and $3.292 billion internationally year-to-date.

Jurassic World, starring Chris Pratt, has also crossed the $600 million mark at the North American box office after just 36 days, the quickest climb to that benchmark ever. It has now grossed more than $1.491 billion worldwide.

The studio's latest release, the animated film Minions from Illumination Entertainment, opened last weekend to a huge $115.7 million domestically and has earned $500 million worldwide.
