Box Office: 'Jurassic World' Nabs Biggest Nonholiday Monday Ever With $25.6M
Universal's dinosaur action-adventure is unstoppable.
Jurassic World continued its rampage at the box office on Monday, biting off $25.6 million to score the biggest nonholiday Monday of all time in North America.
From Universal and Legendary, the $150 million tentpole devoured the previous record set in 2008 by The Dark Knight ($24.5 million). Jurassic World's take was also the third-highest-grossing Monday of all time behind Spider-Man 2 ($27.8), which opened over July Fourth weekend in 2004, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which grossed $26.8 million on Memorial Day proper in 2008.
Jurassic World, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, has now earned a stunning $234.4 million domestically in its first four days and north of $550 million worldwide in less than a week.
The movie, opening 22 years after Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park hit theaters, scored the biggest global launch off all time over the weekend with $524.1 million, including $208.8 million domestically, which bumped The Avengers ($207.4 million) to No. 2 in terms of history's best weekend start.
Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment produced the fourth installment in the franchise with Universal.
