As the summer movie season continues to roll on, the final and supposed last entry in the Jurassic franchise; Jurassic World Dominion; is now showing its teeth in U.S. theaters everywhere. While audiences have given the sixth sequel an “A-” on Cinemascore, critic reviews haven’t been too kind. Sitting at a score of “30%” on Rotten Tomatoes, the negative buzz doesn’t seem to have stopped the film from having a strong start at the domestic box office. Earning $18 million on Thursday preview night showings and $59.6 million on Friday, Jurassic World Dominion takes a bite out of the competition with a less than but good $143 million on opening weekend. To compare how it ranks with the other Jurassic entries and the 2022’s blockbusters, let’s take a deep dive into the numbers.
