'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' Stomps to Top of Box Office Charts



Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom


After enjoying considerable success overseas, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom stomped into theaters in the U.S. and earned an estimated $150 million over the weekend, according to Box Office Mojo. Combined with overseas earnings, the film has made more than $711 million worldwide, which means it’s the third largest release worldwide this year, trailing only Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther.



While no other films opened widely in theaters, Incredibles 2 gave the film competition on the younger end of the market in its second week of release. The animated sequel earned an estimated $81 million and has now made $350 million at the box office in the U.S., pushing it into the top ten animated earners of all time.


Ocean’s 8 dropped just 38.6% over its previous weekend, which suggests that very positive word-of-mouth continues for the female-led action-comedy. Worldwide, the film has earned more than $171 million so far.


Among limited releases, Won’t You Be My Neighbor? was the big story, as the documentary about longtime TV host Fred Rogers brought in more than $1.87 million. So far, that’s an estimated total of more than $4 million, indicating a lot of nostalgic interest in a very gentle and convivial presence on the small screen.


Later this week, Sicario: Day of the Soldado, starring Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro, will open wide, along with the sports comedy Uncle Drew. Theoretically, they’ll be drawing different segments of the potential audience, so we’ll see what moviegoers want to see next weekend.
