'Jurassic World' Reaches $1 Billion in Record Time

No sooner did we report about a pair of domestic records than "Jurassic World" smashed a global one.

Deadline reports the Universal Pictures sequel will officially cross the $1 billion mark today -- its 13th day of release -- faster than any other film in history. "Furious 7" previously held the record, accomplishing the feat in 17 days.

Sometime this week, "Jurassic World" will also surpass "Jurassic Park's" lifetime total of $640 million, which combines first-run, reissue and 3D release.

By the end of the day, "Jurassic World" will have passed "The Lion King" to become the 22nd highest-grossing film in the global box office, with "The Dark Knight" and "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" in its sights. However, it still has a way to go before it approaches the upper echelons inhabited by "The Avengers," "Titanic" and "Avatar."

It's still early days, though ...
