Box office analysts has begun to weigh in on the opening weekend of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The film drops next week across the globe and is tracking for a monster few days.
Reports from various sources point to the fifth film in the franchise opening somewhere between $130m and $150m at the North American box office.
That figure falls a little behind the behemoth $208.8m opening for Jurassic World back in 2015. At the higher end of the estimate the film would quickly become the third highest opening of 2018 following Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther.
With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful franchises 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. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
