Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom bites off $15.3 million from Thursday shows

Movies like BLACK PANTHER and AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR may have knocked it down a few spots, but JURASSIC WORLD remains one of the highest-grossing movies of all time. Based off that success, the sequel, JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM, should have no problem biting off a bit chunk of change at the box office, and things are starting off well in North America with $15.3 million from Thursday pre-shows.

The solid earning from last nights early shows signify the movie will have no problem cracking $100 million over the weekend as it stomps and chomps its way to number one. The previous film from 2015 made about $18 million during its opening Thursday on its way to an astounding $208 million opening weekend. FALLEN KINGDOM isn’t expected to make anywhere near that this time, but that’s because WORLD arrived with much more pent-up anticipation.

This weekend’s total is looking for anywhere between $120-140 million, based off the estimates, with its Thursday is closely related to SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY ($14.1 million), THOR: RAGNAROK ($14.5 million) and SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING ($15.4 million). The movie has already earned $450 million from its early international release, meaning it should have no problem stomping to $1 billion. 

So, things are starting off nicely for FALLEN KINGDOM, and the movie should have no problem overcoming the second weekend of the incredibly popular INCREDIBLES 2. The last movie may not be as beloved as its box office would indicate, but there are still plenty of fans who will pour into theaters for some dino action.  What about you guys? Are you going to stomp into theaters and roar your love for the series? I assume there are people who love these movies that much they're actually becoming dinosaurs who indeed stomp and roar everywhere they go.
