Despite weak reviews, “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” easily managed to win the domestic box-office this weekend with the dinosaur sequel beating expectations and collecting $150 million.
That figure adds onto the more than $700 million grossed thus far worldwide as the film began its global rollout two weeks ago to nab business before the start of the World Cup. Costing roughly $170 million to produce, the film is already in profit and will likely pass the $1 billion mark globally before the end of its run.
That big business didn’t hurt Disney and Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” which earned $81.9 million in its second outing. Despite the steep 56% decline, it’s still the biggest second weekend in history for an animated film and one of the largest for any film. As of ten days, the film will have earned $350.3 million domestically.
“Ocean’s 8” crossed the $100 million domestic mark in its third week, taking third place with $11.7 million. The female-led spinoff stayed ahead of “Tag” and “Deadpool 2” which closed out the top five with $8.2 million and just over $5 million respectively.
On the limited release front, the Robert Pattinson and Mia Wasikowska-led indie western “Damsel” bombed at launch, earning just $7,000 from three screens. John Travolta’s mob biopic “Gotti” dropped 54% in week two and scored $812,000.
