Weekend Box Office June 12-14

You can choose your own crappy pun headline on this one:

Jurassic World Rampaged to a Monstrous Weekend
Jurassic World’s Indomitable Rex Box Office
Jurassic World Eats Box Office Alive
Jurassic World Runs Rampant This Weekend
Jurassic World Devours Competition
Jurassic World Had More People Attend to See to Than Other Films…Dinosaur.

The fourth film in the Jurassic Park franchise broke the opening box office record, pulling in $511.8m worldwide, surpassing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2’s $483.2m global opening from 2011. Now, bear in mind that ticket prices have increased since Deathly Hallows‘ release in 2011. The average ticket price at the time was $7.92, where as now it’s $8.12. That’s not a huge difference, but that can add up. So, the real question is how many tickets were actually sold? Based on those numbers alone, Jurassic World would have sold approximately 6,302,956 tickets, compared to Deathly Hallows’ approximate 6,093,317, meaning Jurassic World sold just under 210,000 more tickets. It’s definitely a fair amount more, but not quite Earth shattering. It’s also not surprising, as the Jurassic franchise has a slighter broader demographic than Potter. Either way, Jurassic World “chewed up” the competition this weeke…OK, now we just feel dirty.
