Jurassic World stomps to top of 2015 global box-office

Jurassic World has overtaken Fast and Furious 7 to become the biggest-grossing film so far in 2015 at the worldwide box-office.

The dinosaur-theme-park thriller directed by Colin Trevorrow has now banked $1.513bn, overtaking Furious 7 which stalled at $1.512bn when it was released earlier this year. Third in the list is Avengers: Age of Ultron which came in at $1.39bn.

Jurassic World has recorded the best global performance since 2012’s The Avengers, which took $1.515bn, and is likely to overhaul it as it is still pulling in large audiences in the US and elsewhere. This would place Jurassic World at number 3 in the list of all-time box office grossing films worldwide – but it still has a long way to go to catch up with Titanic, which achieved $2.19bn in 1997, and Avatar, which recorded $2.79bn in 2009.

The majority of Jurassic World’s takings have come in North America, with $611.23m so far. However, almost 60% of its gross has come from non-American sources, including $228.7m in China and $88.7m in the UK and Ireland. This underscores the continuing importance of international markets for Hollywood films, although Jurassic World’s non-American percentage falls well short of Fast and Furious 7 (76%) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (67%).

Jurassic World’s results have also been a key feature of the record-breaking performance of its parent company Universal, which reached worldwide takings of $5bn in the shortest time any studio has so far managed it. Jurassic World may be its most successful film, but it has also been bolstered by hits such as Furious 7, as well as Fifty Shades of Grey, Pitch Perfect 2 and, most recently, Minions.

Jurassic World’s performance is all the more remarkable considering industry expectations for the film’s box office were not especially optimistic, with analysts largely taken by surprise by Jurassic World’s stunning opening-weekend figures, when it raced to a global total of $5118m (including $204.6m in the US).
