Jurassic World is expected to roar past $1 billion at the global box office faster than any film in history.
Universal Pictures, the studio behind the franchise, said yesterday that it will take Jurassic World just 13 days to reach the box office milestone, surpassing the previous 14-day record set by The Avengers in 2012.
The dinosaur film has collected $402.8 million domestically in 10 days and $584.4 million overseas since its international rollout began on June 10, according to studio estimates.
Internationally, the latest installment will pass the $640-million lifetime box office total of Jurassic Park (which includes the first run, reissues and 3-D) and become the highest-grossing film in the Jurassic franchise.
The Jurassic feat marks yet another win for Universal Pictures. This is the second film to achieve $1 billion this year following the April release of Furious 7, another popular Universal franchise.
