Jurassic World has roared up a massive $82.8 million for its Friday opening day returns, earning the third highest-grossing opening day of all time.

The Jurassic Park sequel is expected to pull anywhere between $180-$200 million this weekend, stomping past most analyst’s expectations. Friday’s performance follows Jurassic World’s strong Thursday night numbers, which stacked $18.5 million for the Colin Trevorrow-directed film. In becoming the third-highest opening day film of all time, World only sits behind Avengers: Age of Ultron and Harry Potter & The Deathly Hollows: Part 2.
