The dinosaurs are on a global rampage.
Universal’s Jurassic World grossed another $60 million at the international box office on Friday, for a three-day international total of $130 million and T. rex-like worldwide haul of $212.9 million after opening to $82.9 million in North America.
Through Sunday, the fourth installment in the nearly extinct franchise could easily cross $400 million globally, one of the biggest starts of all time.
The tentpole is opening in a total of 66 international markets this weekend, including China, where it has earned $50 million since Wednesday. It is coming in No. 1 everywhere. Friday’s openings included the U.K. and Ireland, where the movie grossed $9.8 million, including previews.
Jurassic World’s three-day total in France is $6.1 million, followed by Russia, where it has earned $5.2 million in its first two days. Other results include Australia ($4.6 million, two days), Germany ($4.1 million, two days), Taiwan ($3.8 million, one day), India ($2.7 million, two days), Brazil ($2.3 million, two days) and Italy $2.2 million, two days).
Japan is the only territory left to release on Aug. 5.
In North America, Jurassic World is poised to score either the second or third biggest weekend of all time with $181 million-$200 million.
Set two decades after Steven Spielberg‘s classic Jurassic Park hit theaters, the movie stars Chris Pratt as a dinosaur trainer at the massive Jurassic World park. But when a genetically engineered dinosaur gets loose in the park, he and park manager (Bryce Dallas Howard) are tasked with stopping the animal before it kills thousands of park visitors. Vincent D’Onofrio, Ty Simpkins and Nick Robinson also star.
Colin Trevorrow directed the action-adventure movie — which is the weekend’s only new wide release — based on characters created by Michael Crichton.
Legendary co-financed the film, with Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment co-producing.
