From Loki, to the Chitauri, to Ultron, there's nothing The Avengers can't stop—except massive man-eating dinosaurs.

Final box office tallies now shows that this weekend's Jurassic World has dethroned The Avengers as the highest domestic opening weekend grossing film of all. Jurassic World took a massive bite out of Joss Whedon's Marvel Comics epic by earning $209 million during its three-day opening. The Avengers's US opening weekend only earned $207.4 million when it premiered in 2012.

Directed by Colin Trevorrow and starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, Jurassic World is playing in theaters everywhere.
