Is the domestic box-office king Avatar ready to be replaced?
This past weekend, Jurassic World racked up another $54 million at the domestic box-office, breaking the record for the least days to reach $500 million domestically. More astonishing though is the film's possibility to break the ultimate record (besides #1 worldwide), a record held by Avatar ($760 million) since 2009.
This movie has already conquered dozens of records, including best opening weekend domestically ($208 million) and sits comfortably to date as the highest grossing film of 2015. Although JW seems to be paving it's own path, previous heavy-hitters of hollywood, such as The Avengers could track it's eventually end sum.
According to www.boxofficemojo.com, The Avengers 17-days into its North American box-office run had grossed an unprecedented $457 million. Jurassic World of course out paces The Avengers by nearly 10%, and doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
If Jurassic World retains that 10% lead, 2015's summer mega-blockbuster could reach $700 million domestically. The odds are though, Jurassic World will likely end in a range between $680-720 million. This is still an incredible feat, because either way it would knock Titanic down to 3rd domestically.
