"Jurassic World" Passes "Avengers" for #3 in All-Time Global Box Office

"Jurassic World" is now on the all-time box office medal stand. The Hollywood Reporter has word that the fourth film in Universal's "Jurassic Park" franchise has now earned $1.522 billion in worldwide box office totals, moving it to No. 3 on the all-time list -- displacing Marvel Studios' hit "The Avengers," which ended its 2012 run with $1.520 billion.

This leaves only James Cameron's massively successful films "Avatar" and "Titanic," No. 1 and No. 2 in all-time worldwide box office, ahead of "Jurassic World." There's a large bit of distance between those two and any contenders, though -- "Avatar" made $2.788 billion for a run that started in 2009; 1997's "Titanic" grossed $2.187 billion.

Directed by Colin Trevorrow and starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, "Jurassic World" started its domestic theatrical run on June 12. It's the third 2015 film to cross the billion-dollar mark, along with "Furious 7" and Marvel Studios' "Avengers" sequel, "Avengers: Age of Ultron."
