Jurassic World Is Shortest Ever Price To Overtake Avatar

After Jurassic World opened with $500m+ takings on its first weekend, William Hill are offering odds of 5/1 that it surpasses the global takings of Avatar which stand at $2.788b.

“We had been offering 9/4 that the movie broke the $191m opening weekend figures of Avengers: Age Of Ultron and it absolutely smashed that,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “We underestimated the draw of the dinosaur and we will not be doing that again. This is the shortest price a movie has ever been to surpass Avatar’s huge record.”

It is 6/4 that the film wins an Oscar, - 1/2 it does not.
