Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom exploded to a massive domestic opening of an estimated $150 million, final actual weekend numbers will be released tomorrow. While it didn’t reach the the same level of Jurassic World’s opening of $208.8 million in 2015, which was the opening weekend record at the time, this is still a huge opening weekend. Jurassic World was a perfect storm of a 14 year build up, nostalgia and a functioning park, so no one should have expected Fallen Kingdom to surpass those numbers. This is the fourth biggest opening weekend of 2018, behind Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther and Incredibles 2.
The estimated $150 million hits the high end of the initial tracking that saw the film grossing $130-150 million. Also, this opening is Universal Pictures second biggest domestic opening ever after Jurassic World in 2015. Fallen Kingdom just topped 2015’s Furious 7 opening of $147.2 million.
The film also continues to do huge overseas as the film took it’s international total to $561.5 million. With the domestic opening of $150 million, it’s worldwide estimated total is $711.5 million. Fallen Kingdom is well on it’s way to the billion dollar club.
