'Jurassic World' has held on to the number one spot in a huge weekend at the US box office.
Jurassic World has topped the US box office for the second time this weekend, taking a massive $102 million. The dinosaur action flick starring Chris Pratt managed to beat Pixar’s latest offering Inside Out in a very tight race, which saw the animation take $91 million in it's opening weekend.
