On Tuesday, the Universal tentpole passed up ‘The Avengers.’

Talk about bite.

Universal and Amblin Entertainment’s Jurassic World has hit $1.522 billion at the global box office, eclipsing The Avengers ($1.520 billion) to become the No. 3 movie of all time behind Avatar ($2.788 billion) and Titanic ($2.186 billion), not accounting for inflation.

Jurassic World, directed by Colin Trevorrow, has earned $614.3 million domestically, becoming only the fourth film to ever cross $600 million. Its overseas haul is $907.3 million.

The box-office sensation stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.

Universal has yet to announce plans for Jurassic World 2, but a sequel is all but guaranteed.

‘Jurassic World’ becomes only the fifth film in history to cross $500 million domestically after narrowly winning the weekend ahead of ‘Inside Out’; ‘Terminator: Genisys’ opens to promising $8.3 million overseas from 10 smaller markets.

Seth MacFarlane’s raunchy R-rated Ted 2 could have used some fuzzy-wuzziness at the North American box office this weekend.

The $68 million comedy, reuniting MacFarlane with Mark Wahlberg, eked out a third-place finish, grossing a disappointing $32.9 million. That’s nearly 40 percent behind the $54.4 million launch of Ted in summer 2012. Overseas, the comedy, from Media Rights Capital and Universal, opened to $20.3 million from 26 markets for a global launch of $53.2 million.

Granted, the first film didn’t face competition from two giant tentpoles, as Ted 2 did from Universal’s Jurassic World and Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out, which continued to claim the top two spots.

The North American box office sizzled as Disney and Pixar’s “Inside Out” and Universal’s “Jurassic World” duked it out at the multiplexes. After shattering records for domestic and international debuts, “Jurassic World” became only the second film in history to top $100 million in two separate weekends.

The dinosaur sequel nabbed first place with a massive $102 million, pushing its domestic total to $398.2 million. “Jurassic World” has now passed “Jurassic Park” ($357.1 million) as the highest-grossing domestic release in the franchise’s history when not adjusted for inflation.

Its dominance ended one of the most remarkable winning streaks in cinema history, putting a period to Pixar’s run of first-place finishes. Every previous film released by the studio bowed in the top spot on domestic charts.

“Jurassic World” now holds the record for the biggest opening in movie history.

After the final numbers were tallied, the dinosaur thriller inched past “Marvel’s the Avengers” to become top dog on the all-time list, with a U.S. debut of $208.8 million. The superhero blockbuster was the previous record holder with a $207.4 million bow. It also topped “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2″ and its $314 million opening to set a new benchmark for an overseas launch with $315.6 million.

Universal, the studio behind the film, initially estimated that “Jurassic World” would open to $204.6 million domestically, but the blockbuster had a stronger than anticipated Sunday.

It had some stiff competition for audience attention on Sunday night — both Game 5 of the NBA Finals and the season finale of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” generated a great deal of buzz that could have cut into ticket sales. Box office analysts say that moviegoers may have opted to check out the film on Sunday after hearing about its monster opening in order to be part of the conversation.

“It inspires people to go to the movie theater,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak. “Everybody gets caught up in it.”

Legendary co-financed the sequel, which cost $150 million to produce. Colin Trevorrow directed “Jurassic World,” with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard playing the leads.

Universal debuted the film in 4,274 theaters, the widest release in studio history. Heading into the weekend most analysts predicted that “Jurassic World” would kick off with between $125 million and $135 million. Chief Analyst Phil Contrino said that “Jurassic World’s” over-performance is analogous the recent monster openings of “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “American Sniper” that dwarfed estimates on the strength of audiences’ reactions.

“This was off the charts big in terms of how it broke out and became must see really fast,” said Contrino. “This is a movie that benefited from a new era of Thursday evening shows, which helped spread a very enthusiastic word of mouth.”

Globally, “Jurassic World” became the first movie to cross $500 million in a single weekend. It debuted to a massive $100 million in China and opened in first place in all 66 international territories where the film was released. Based on that performance, Contrino said the film will cross the $1 billion mark “without even blinking.”

Universal crossed the $1 billion mark at the domestic box office, beating Paramount’s record achieved on June 22, 2008. It has also gone past $3 billion worldwide, passing Fox’s record of $3 billion on June 30, 2010.

FX has secured exclusive television rights to Jurassic World, mere hours after the dino-mite thriller saw its opening weekend tallies revised up to all-around record-setting levels.

Based on updated numbers, the U.S. box office haul for the Chris Pratt-fronted follow-up to Jurassic Park amassed $208.8 million in its debut, besting previous record holder The Avengers (which raked in $207.4 in its opening weekend). Globally, Jurassic World also set records with box office receipts totaling $315.3 million, edging out Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 ($314 mil).

Earlier this year, FX secured the television rights to Furious 7 (which has grossed over $1.5 billion worldwide) and Pitch Perfect 2.

In addition to Parks and Recreation alum Pratt, Jurassic World features familiar TV faces such as Vincent D’Onofrio (Law & Order, Daredevil), Jake M. Johnson (New Girl), Judy Greer (Arrested Development, Archer), B.D. Wong (Law & Order: SVU), Nick Robinson (Melissa & Joey) and Lauren Lapkus (Orange Is the New Black).

A timetable for Jurassic World’s FX premiere has not yet been set, so get thee to a Cinexplex in the meantime! It’s a charming little art house flick; like Amélie, but with more teeth and talons.

Universal’s Jurassic World is devouring everything in its path at the Friday box office for a projected North American debut of $155 million-plus — one of the best showings in recent times and the biggest opening ever for the month of June.

The $150 million tentpole, rescuing the dinosaur franchise from near-extinction, is expected to earn $65 million-plus on Friday alone. That includes $18.5 million from Thursday evening previews, the biggest late-night showing ever for Universal after Furious 7 ($15.8 million).

Overseas, the dinosaurs are also bigger-than-life. On Thursday, the movie grossed another $41.6 million from 37 markets for a two-day total of $65.6 million from 45 markets. It is No. 1 everywhere.

If it indeed crosses $150 million domestically, Jurassic World would best Universal’s Furious 7 ($147.2 million) to mark the second-best opening of the year to date behind Disney and Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron ($191.3 million). The current record-holder for June is Man of Steel, which debuted to $116.6 million.

Jurassic World, playing in 4,273 theaters domestically and opening 22 years after Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park hit theaters, is getting the widest release ever for a Universal title. Overseas, the fourth installment is rolling out across the world, grossing north of $21 million from its first eight markets on Wednesday, including $17.2 million in China.
