Jurassic World devouring the box office on its way to US$1 bln

Jurassic World, the latest installment in the dinosaur franchise begun by Steven Spielberg in 1993, is racing toward US$1 billion at the global box office, faster than any film before it.

It’s set to breach the psychological barrier after 13 days in theaters, overhauling Furious 7, the last movie of Paul Walker before he died in a car crash, which took 17 days to register the  milestone, according to industry publication Variety.

After less than two weeks of theatrical release, the Universal blockbuster sits on worldwide sales of US$981.3 million.

It topped foreign charts this weekend with a US$160.5 million box office from 66 markets.

Jurassic World is a hit in China, where it has made US$167.1 million, more than double the amount anywhere else except the United States.
