Despite lukewarm reviews, Universal Pictures’ sixth installment in the “Jurassic” franchise, Jurassic World: Dominion, generated an estimated $143 million across nearly 4,700 North American screens to dominate its opening weekend box office through June 12.
The tally is just behind 2018’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which opened with $148 million.
The previous box office champ, Paramount Pictures’ Top Gun: Maverick, brought in an estimated $50 million in its third weekend of release, upping the sequel’s domestic haul past $393.3 million. Worldwide, the film has now generated $747 million in ticket sales.
Rounding out the podium: Disney/Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which saw another $4.9 million in ticket sales across more than 3,300 screens. After six weeks of release, the superhero actioner has surpassed $930 million at the global box office — without a Chinese release.
Disney-owned 20th Century Films’ The Bob’s Burgers Movie added $2.3 million in revenue across 2,600 screens to up its North American total to $27 million.
Universal/Dreamworks Animation’s animated heist comedy The Bad Guys tacked on an additional $2.25 million in ticket sales across more than 2,400 screens, upping its global tally past $229 million after eight weeks.
