Two days ago Variety reported that the film is predicted to cross $1 billion, and today that became a reality.

The Colin Trevorrow-directed Jurassic Park sequel achieved the feat in less than two weeks, gobbling box office records previously held by Marvel’s The Avengers along the way. It took The Avengers 14 days to hit $1 billion, while Jurassic World reached it in just 10.

Despite competition from Pixar’s Inside Out, Jurassic World was still king of the box office during its second weekend in theaters. Though this weekend’s numbers aren’t final, estimates track Jurassic World’s domestic totals above $400 million and foreign totals at 583.1 million.
