Dinosaur sequel Jurassic World has stomped past the $1 billion mark at the global box office faster than any other movie in history.
The much-hyped blockbuster broke the record for the highest opening ever when it grossed $155 million worldwide on its debut weekend, before becoming only the second film ever to cross the $100 million mark in two separate weekends.
It has taken another two records as well - for biggest domestic weekend with $106.6 million and fastest film to reach $400 million domestically (just 10 days).
Jurassic World reached $1bn after 13 days in cinemas, beating previous record-holder Furious 7 who did so after 17 days earlier this year. Clearly action-packed nostalgia movies hold the key to mammoth box office success.
It remains to be seen whether hotly-awaited release Star Wars: The Force Awakens will beat Jurassic World in December to be named the highest-grossing movie of 2015, or whether the dinosaur sequel will beat Avatar and Titanic to the all-time title.
Animated comedy Inside Out scored the biggest debut for an original Pixar movie in the US with $91m - the second highest opening for any Pixar ever behind Toy Story 3 in 2010.Reuse content
