Despite a 14-year layoff between the lackadaisical and generally forgettable Jurassic Park III, Jurassic World has managed to not only pass expectations but shatter previous box office records.

The fourth installment in the beloved (and we could assume ongoing) film franchise took in the highest opening weekend worldwide gross after its public release last Friday, June 12th, pulling in a reported $511.8 million USD. This total surpassed the previous record made by the final installment in the Harry Potter film saga, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, which took in $483.2 million in its opening weekend in 2011.

The film also nearly managed to eclipse the domestic opening weekend box office record, set by The Avengers in 2012, earning $204 million - only $3 million less than The Avengers' record.

No immediate announcements for a sequel is in the future, although star Chris Pratt has gone on record saying he is signed on for possible future installments.
