According to Variety, Thursday night previews of the film took in $15.3 million, putting it well within its estimated $130-150 million expectations.

Although not the paragon that the original dino-drama directed by Steven Spielberg was, Jurassic World adequately brought prehistoric mayhem into the 21st century, nonetheless, to the tune of $1.6 billion globally, which was good enough for fifth on the all-time global gross chart. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom lands in theaters this weekend and is on pace to snag $133 million domestically. Having previously opened overseas, this weekend the film could push past $600 million.


When "Jurassic Park" came out in 1993, it was a groundbreaking marvel. Then again, with the World Cup in full swing, which is far more popular in other parts of the world than in the USA, it's possible the sequel could suffer in China because of World Cup fever, and the impending summer "blackout" of Hollywood films that happens every year at the end of June.

'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' raises the stakes from its 2015 predecessor and gives fans more dinosaurs, delightful new characters, and a twist that changes everything. "As I anxiously await whatever adventures Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard have in store, here is a list of my palaeontologist-approved, top dinosaur movies of all time".
