Chris Pratt takes the lead as the charming Owen Grady in Jurassic WorldUniversal Pictures

Indominus Rex, the genetically engineered dinosaur and Chris Pratt's T-Rex trainer character Owen Grady, have reignited the Jurassic World franchise with a record-breaking box office opening by earning more than $524m (£336m) this past weekend.

The reboot of the 1993 Steven Spielberg classic has earned $524m globally, making it the biggest movie debut in history, GMA News reported. In North America, the movie minted a whopping $208.8 million.

The Colin Trevorrow-directed science fiction adventure pushed Avengers 2 to second spot as the highest grossing movie in the first weekend after its release.

Jurassic World was released last week and grossed $315.3m outside of the US, knocking off the 2011 blockbuster Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, which earned $314 million during its opening weekend.

As expected, the fourth movie in the Jurassic franchise, showcased a bigger and scarier dinosaur in the form of the I-Rex, which left most fans in awe.

Meanwhile, Universal Studio has already signed Pratt to reprise his role as the dinosaur trainer for the next film in the series. It will be interesting to see how the movie director, writers and the production company come up with a better and bigger dinosaur to entertain fans across the world.
