According to Forbes, Jurassic World just had the biggest Friday opening ever. Taking into account Thursday night previews, the total Friday take was $82.6 million. However, take away those Thursday numbers, and Friday has a "pure” gross of $64.1 million. That places it ahead of previous record holders Furious 7 (with $51.6 million), Iron Man 3 ($53.25 million), Avengers: Age of Ultron ($56.86 million) and The Avengers ($62.7 million).
That tally basically shows that Jurassic World isn’t a just niche movie for fans of the franchise, but that it has broad appeal for the movie-going public in general.
And there's still Saturday and Sunday... Will it hit the projected $200 million?
It seems clear, Jurassic World is the summer movie to beat this year. In my opinion, it deserves all the success.
