Jurassic World has broken a huge record!

Jurassic World now holds the world record for having the biggest opening weekend in history. It may have been twenty years since the last instalment of the movie franchise, but that didn't affect its popularity two decades on. 

The film, which opened on Friday, knocked The Avengers off the top spot having grossed over €480m in its first weekend. 

It was clear that Jurassic World was going to have a huge opening but the film surpassed the profit expectations by a few million. 

This movie sees Chris Pratt as a velociraptor trainer and Bryce Dallas Howard as the dinosaur amusement park’s operations manager, and is by far the best debut in the Jurassic Park franchise.

This record also provides Universal Pictures with its biggest opening of all time which pushes the company over the $2 billion mark for 2015 grosses. 

Jurassic World cost €140m to make and features some amazing computer graphics which create the dinosaurs. The Jurassic Park franchise was previously directed by Steven Spielberg, who stayed on as executive producer for the latest film. 

This much anticipated movie has received extremely good reviews since opening on Friday and has appealed to all ages. It has created a sense of nostalgia for people who grew up watching the old ones and the huge publicity around the film appealed to a younger crowd too. And let's face it, Chris Pratt being the lead character probably dragged more than a handful to the cinema too.

Now… to wait for the next one!
