Jurassic Park 3D does monster business in China to land at the top of global box office

Steven Spielberg’s revamped dinosaur movie Jurassic Park 3D has shot to the top of the global box office thanks in part to a monster interest in China. The film picked up another $30 million (£20 million) in ticket sales over the weekend – almost all of that coming from China, where the movie opened last week (ends23Aug13).
The new Jurassic Park made $45.4 million (£30.2 million) when it was released in America earlier this year (13) and it has since gone on to rake in $44.5 million (£29.7 million) overseas.
Meanwhile, animated hit Despicable Me 2 has crossed the $800 million (£533.3 million) mark at the worldwide box office, becoming the second top-grossing film of the year behind Iron Man 3, which grossed $1.5 billion internationally.
