Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is one of the most highly-anticipated sequels that has come to theaters since, well, Deadpool 2. Sure, that’s not a lot of time, but fans are eager to make their way to the cinema to see their favorite prehistoric characters in action. Whether it be Chris Pratt’s growing star power, the inclusion of Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm, the dinosaurs themselves, or the marketing of the film, people are excited. So excited in fact, that the film is already putting up big numbers overseas.
While Fallen Kingdom isn’t due to open in North America until June 22nd, it has already opened in 48 markets across the world, and earned over $151 million over the weekend. It’s opened in 48 international markets already (U.K., Germany, France, Spain, Russia, Hong Kong, and South Korea), but still is yet to be released in some of the majors (China, Australia, Brazil, Argentina, and of course, North America). This got us to thinking… Can Fallen Kingdom catch the behemoth that is Infinity War?
Empire is right! So grateful to be part of #Marvel’s 10 year cinematic reign. James Gunn called me last night floored after having seen the movie. I expected no less. I cant wait until I’m parked in front of the screen popcorn in hand. I’m so excited for the world to see what we’ve been cooking up. Im honored to be a part of what will be the biggest movie of all time. 🙏♥️
Infinity War is likely one more weekend away from reaching the $2 billion mark, which only three films have done in the past, and the first Jurassic World finished with a very respectable $1.67 billion worldwide total. With that being said, there’s momentum behind Fallen Kingdom, and while it may not be able to top $2 billion, if it improves on its predecessor, it’s going to give Infinity War a run for its money domestically, at least.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom his theaters in the United States on June 22, 2018.
