Despite holding the title for biggest worldwide opening weekend for just six months, “Jurassic World” graciously passed the crown today to “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
“Jurassic World” producer Frank Marshall tweeted artwork from himself, Universal Pictures, producer Steven Spielberg and director Colin Trevorrow congratulating the team behind “The Force Awakens” on “the biggest opening weekend in galactic history.” The image depicts a dinosaur presenting a medal to BB-8.
“Cheers to J.J., Kathy, the cast and crew, and DIS/LFL marketing teams!” wrote Marshall, who’s been married to Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy since 1987.
“The Force Awakens” grossed more than $528 million in its opening weekend, surpassing the record $524.9 million set earlier this year by “Jurassic World.”
