In holdover news, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom should earn anywhere from $60 million (-60%) to $75m (-50%) in its second weekend of release, and the $170m-budgeted dino sequel crossed $200m domestic and $800m worldwide. With $604m overseas as of Wednesday, the film will try to get that much closer to $1 billion+ over the next three days. $900m-$950m should be do-able for the Bryce Dallas Howard/Chris Pratt release.
The film earned $11.339 million (-8%) on Thursday to bring its seven-day cume to $204.752m. So it’ll end the weekend anywhere between $265m and $280m. Of course, it may nose dive, drop 67.6% and join the $100m Losers Club. That’s unlikely at best, but it’ll make a fun headline for Monday if it does. Jokes aside, this one should soar past $300m domestic sometime next week. If Disney dominated the first half of the summer, then the second half (Fallen Kingdom, The First Purge, Skyscraper, Mama Mia! Here We Go Again ) may belong to Universal/Comcast Corp., at least overseas.
Avengers: Infinity War has finished its ninth week in theaters with $671.08 million domestic and around $2.033 billion worldwide. It may need an extra week to get past the adjusted $675m domestic gross of The Jungle Book and become the 33rd-biggest inflation-adjusted grosser of all time, but it should happen right as it hands the baton over to Ant-Man and the Wasp. It’ll probably fall out of the top ten this weekend, which is more trivia than anything else as Black Panther still sticks around trying to claw its way to $700m domestic.
