See How Marvel Studios Congratulated 'Jurassic World' On Breaking the 'Avengers' Box Office Record

Jun 16, 2015

In a highly competitive world where opening weekend box office records are broken on a pretty regular basis, we tend to see the big studios champion their movies when they achieve a milestone. What we don't normally see is another studio congratulating someone else's movie when it breaks their own previous record.

That's why this image -- tweeted by Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige -- is so great. Following a weekend that saw Jurassic World snatch $208 million at the box office, topping the record previously set by Marvel's The Avengers back in 2012, Feige took to Twitter with... well, this. 

 

Classy, dudes. Classy.

(By the way, that image was created by Andy Park, who works on the visual development team at Marvel.)

This isn't the first time we've seen one major movie figure congratulate their competition on besting them, though. One of our all-time favorites is this letter that Steven Spielberg wrote to George Lucas congratulating him on Star Wars moving ahead of Jaws in domestic film rentals.

And speaking of Star Wars, Jurassic World may not hold this record for much longer. The Force Awakens is due on December 18, and you bet it'll be eying the record books, too.
