Jurassic World is tearing through box office records faster than a velociraptor tears through the jungle when its caught a scent.
With Thursday’s earnings, the Universal and Legendary film had chomped its way to a massive $296.2 million domestically. It will reach the $300 million mark Friday, taking a total of eight days to hit that milestone in a new record. The record was previously held by Marvel’s The Avengers, which took nine days in 2012.
Jurassic World, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, already broke records during its opening weekend when it earned $208.8 million to surpass The Avengers‘ $207.4 million record from 2012. It also scored the biggest global debut of all time last weekend with $524.4 million, and became the fastest film to hit $250 million domestically, a feat it accomplished in five days.
It’s possible that the dinosaur adventure film could break another record this weekend. If Universal’s tentpole earns more than $103.1 million domestically this weekend, it will take The Avengers‘ record for biggest second weekend.
Internationally, Jurassic World has earned $434.6 million through Thursday for a worldwide total of $730.8 million.
