There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom remains #1 at the Box Office adding an estimated $60 million

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom officially hit domestic theaters on June 22nd and earned the second best opening in Universal Pictures history with $148 million (down $2 million from the $150 million Sunday estimate). It was easily the #1 film and it remained the #1 film during it’s second weekend since release with an estimated $60 million, a 59.9% drop from last weekend. The estimated domestic total for Fallen Kingdom stands at $264.79 million.

The estimated $60 million is also the second largest second weekend for a film in Universal Pictures history. The top second weekend was Jurassic World three years ago when it fell only 49% and earned $106.588 million. It just narrowly edged out Furious 7, which grossed $59.586 million during it’s second weekend in 2015.

Overseas the film continued to do well and has now taken it’s international total to $667.6 million. Adding that with the estimated domestic total of $60 million, it’s worldwide estimated total is $932.39 million. Fallen Kingdom will soon be joining the exlusive rank of films that have grossed at least $1 billion worldwide.

  1. I admitedly don’t follow boxoffice trends too closely but a near 60% drop in a second weekend sounds massive. Still pulling in a decent chunk of change though.

    1. 60% is on the high end of the normal range for blockbusters. Anything really above 60% would start to trend into the more disappointing range. Jurassic World was really one of the rare times a blockbuster came in under a 50% drop. Though for comparison Infinty War dropped 56% and Deadpool 2 dropped 65%. Fallen Kingdom is more or less performing to what a typical blockbuster does drop wise, at least domestically. Overseas it continues to be a monster of a franchise.

    1. Well, don’t forget about Incredibles 2. But yeah, apart from that, there’s nothing else out that’s really worth watching. Come to think of it, I’d say that there’s an average of about four or five movies every year that the majority of the internet-connected population unanimously want to see for one reason or another.

  2. Off-topic, but it’s been bugging me so much:
    So, if the Lockwood manor dioramas are Stuffed Ingen creations…is the Dimetrodon glimpsed there..

    CANON??!?

  3. I wasn’t a viewer of Incredibles (the first movie), so I have absolutely no intention to watch the sequel, even though I remember reading excellent reviews for the first movie. Anyway, I’m 37, so animations have very little – or no – appeal to me.

    I’m happy about the numbers for FK. If anything, that’s a green light the third, and supposedly final, installment.

    Tomorrow I’m gonna watch Fallen Kingdom again. I want to watch it with more careful eyes, savouring and analyzing each scene instead of paying attention to my accelerated heart beats (common at the first time I watch a JP film).

  4. I’ve already seen this film 2 times, and it is better after the first time since I was trying to see how all the scenes go together and all of that. Also, don’t waste your time/ money seeing it in Real-D 3D. It makes your eyes go a little cross, and the screen looks a bit out of focus. The second time I viewed it, it was so much better not being in 3D. I’m going to see it again on the 7th. This film will make over 1 million dollars over this next weekend, and it really deserves it!
