On its opening weekend, Jurassic World Dominion raced to the top of the box office. Despite the fact that the film received mixed reviews from critics, it was a box office success. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard reprise their roles as raptor trainer Owen Grady and Jurassic World employee turned dinosaur liberator Claire Dearing, respectively, in Dominion. Laura Dern, Sam Neill, and Ian Malcolm, all of whom appeared in Jurassic Park, reunited on screen for the first time since the 1993 film.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom grossed $148 million on its opening weekend in 2018 (pre-COVID), therefore the threequel’s opening weekend stats are comparable to its predecessor. The first film in the World series grossed $209 million in its first weekend in the United States. Internationally, the newest movie is off to a strong start, grossing $389.1 million in only a few days.
Jurassic World Dominion is ruling the box-office
Top Gun: Maverick was pushed from the top place at the box office by Jurassic World Dominion. The Jurassic Park sequel, which reunites the original cast with World’s Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, earned $143.4 million domestically over the weekend, while the Tom Cruise movie earned another $50 million to take second place and inch closer to a record.
The box office dominance of Jurassic World Dominion wasn’t surprising, but it shouldn’t be overlooked either. The anticipated final part of the trilogy received just 30% on Rotten Tomatoes’ critical ratings (though its audience score was a much more generous 79% ). When compared to Tom Cruise’s fighter pilot sequel, which received a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes from critics (and a 99% audience score), surpassing truly was a concern. The legendary sequel’s $143.4 million start, on the other hand, outperformed Top Gun: Maverick’s $124 million Friday-Sunday haul and The Batman’s $128.5 million premiere. Top Gun: Maverick, on the other hand, is expected to gross $400 million in the United States, making it Tom Cruise’s most successful film to date.
Jurassic World Dominion is now playing in theaters worldwide.
