Fallen Kingdom' Pacing For $133 Million Opening Weekend

An opening in this range would put Fallen Kingdom somewhere in the high to mid 20's on the all-time domestic opening weekend list, while Jurassic World sits at #4.

Universal and Amblin's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom stomped into North American theaters Thursday night, earning a promising $15.3 million in previews.

Of course, $130-$140 million is still a big number and nothing to sneeze at. But in comparison to the first movie, that's a fairly significant dropoff. When a franchise just does the same thing again and again, it's time to stop.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he would sorely miss Krauthammer's "friendship and his wise counsel". By any measure, Krauthammer cut a singular profile in Washington's journalistic and policymaking circles.

So the TL;DR here is that Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will probably fall far short of its predecessor at the box office on opening weekend, but given the circumstances, it'll still perform pretty swimmingly.

With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs-along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. See what we mean ahead.

Although not the paragon that the original dino-drama directed by Steven Spielberg was, Jurassic World adequately brought prehistoric mayhem into the 21st century, nonetheless, to the tune of $1.6 billion globally, which was good enough for fifth on the all-time global gross chart. It'll likely be knocked into the #2 position by Fallen Kingdom, but it's gonna put up a solid fight.
