Universal Pictures’ series reboot starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard hit 10 figures Monday, June 22, 2015, 13 days after opening worldwide. The record previously was held by “Furious 7,” which reached the mark in 17 days earlier this year. “Avatar” previously held the record for fastest to $1 billion with 19 days.

“Jurassic World” earned $208.8 million and $102 million in its first two weeks, respectively, in the U.S., and continues to do well worldwide.

“Inside Out” finished second to “Jurassic World” last weekend, making $91 million in its debut weekend. The animated film, starring Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling and other comedy stars, had the second-highest opening weekend for a Pixar movie, behind only “Toy Story 3,” which earned $110.3 million in its opening weekend in 2010.
