'Jurassic World,' four other films reach $1 billion in record time

Dinosaurs have taken over the world. Last week, "Jurassic World" shattered records by grossing $1 billion worldwide in a lucky 13 days, faster than any other film. It's the second time this year that a movie has accomplished that feat. And with "Star Wars: Episode VII -- The Force Awakens" opening in December, don't be surprised if it happens again.

Here are the four other movies that, along with "Jurassic World," made $1 billion in record time.

FURIOUS 7 (2015) -- In April, the auto adventure starring Vin Diesel and the late Paul Walker raced to the $1 billion finish line in just 17 days.

MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS (2012) -- Iron Man, the Hulk, Captain America and all the rest of the superhero gang flexed their box-office muscles and made a cool billion in 19 days.

AVATAR (2009) -- "Titanic" helmsman James Cameron was king of the world with this epic that not only topped $1 billion in 19 days but is still the top moneymaker ($2.79 billion globally).

HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART 2 (2011) -- The Hogwarts wizard worked his magic in this last film in the series by conjuring up $1 billion in 19 days.
