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.
