Marvel Studios Congratulates Jurassic World On Being The New Opening Weekend King

As you might have heard, 'Jurassic World' now holds the record for biggest opening in movie history.

The previous titleholder was Marvel's 'The Avenger's (2012) with a box office record of $207.4 million. The dinosaur thriller inched past the competition with a U.S. debut of $208.8 million.

But don't worry, Marvel was a gracious loser. In fact, studio president Kevin Feige took to Twitter Tuesday to congratulate director Colin Trevorrow, executive producer Steven Spielberg, and all those involved with the revival of Universal's 'Jurassic Park' franchise.

An exclusive piece of art was created by Marvel Studio's Andy Park, featuring the Avengers looking on at Chris Pratt's character Owen, riding a T-Rex that's holding Thor's hammer.

Feige's Twitter nod was reminiscent of an earlier time in Hollywood, when filmmakers would publicly congratulate their friends' box office accomplishments in published one-page advertisements.
