'Jurassic World' - The Third-Largest Opening Day Of All Time

"Jurassic World opened on Friday, earning an estimated $82.8 million at the box office, which includes $18.5 million from Thursday's late-night screenings. That makes "Jurassic World" the third biggest opening day film of all time, behind "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2" ($91 million) and "Avengers: Age of Ultron" ($84.4 million).

However, as Scott Mendelson of Forbes points out, "Jurassic World" has broken another record. If you subtract the $18.5 million earned from Thursday previews, the Friday-only gross of Colin Trevorrow's film is $64.3 million. That means "Jurassic World" technically had the largest "pure Friday/opening day" of all time, Mendelson says, beating out "Furious 7" ($51.6 million), "Iron Man 3" ($53.25 million), "Avengers 2" ($56.86 million) and "The Avengers" ($62.7 million)."
