Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom roars to $150 million #1 debut

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom topped the weekend box office with an estimated $150 million, marking just the second time ever that two different films have delivered debuts of over $100 million over two consecutive weeks. The only other time was in 2007 when Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End followed Shrek the Third with $114 million and $121.6 million, respectively. Disney/Pixar’s Incredibles 2 opened with $180 million last week.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom beat expectations — pre-opening tracking had it earning at most $140 million — but still finished behind the first film, which debuted with $208.8 million in 2015.  Fallen Kingdom also earned an estimated $106.7 million in its third week of release overseas, bringing its worldwide total to $711.5 million.

Incredibles 2 dropped to second place with an estimated $81 million, bringing its total stateside to $350 million. It’s now one of the 10 top-earning animated features of all time. The film opened in China over the weekend with an estimated $21.2 million, the biggest-ever opening there for a Disney/Pixar film, bringing its global tally to $485.1 million. Disney is the parent company of Pixar and ABC News.

Ocean’s 8 finished in third place with an estimated $11.6 million. In fourth place is the comedy Tag, with $8.2 million.  Rounding out the top five is Deadpool 2, delivering an estimated $5.25 million. It’s now topped $300 million in the U.S. and $707.1 million worldwide.
