Jurassic World takes $511m in a record-opening weekend

The fourth installment in the Jurassic Park series has become the first film to bring more than $500m on its opening weekend.
Jurassic World was the most popular screening in all 66 countries where it was released.
The film made $204.6m (£131.4m) in the US, according to the firm Exhibitor Relations.
It took $100m in China and $29.6m (£19m) in the UK and Ireland as part of the record global total of $511.8m.
The Universal Pictures release had the second-highest grossing opening weekend in the US.
The record is held by Marvel’s The Avengers, which took $207.4m in 2012.
But Jurassic World could still dethrone the comic book movie, as the weekend numbers are partially estimated. The final reckoning will be discovered later on Monday.
Jurassic World was co-produced by Steven Spielberg, who directed the first two films in the series, and directed by Colin Trevorrow.
