Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom expected to make Rs 1000 crore in US opening
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is expected to make between $140-150 million (approximately Rs 1000 crore) in its US opening weekend. While this is a drop from Jurassic World’s 2015 debut, which broke the opening weekend record with $208 million, it’s still a huge number for Universal Pictures to look forward to.
According to initial tracking reports, which can drastically fluctuate closer to the film’s actual release date, the film is showing a 94% ‘definite interest’ from audiences, as reported by Variety.
The sequel takes Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard’s characters back to Isla Nublar, where they must rescue the dinosaurs before a volcano erupts. Directed by JA Bayona, the film’s trailers have highlighted the horror elements of the story.
Universal is trying a staggered release for the film. Before its June 22 US release, the film will play in Belgium, France, Germany, Indonesia, Korea, and the Philippines on June 6, India, Croatia, Greece, Hong Kong, Russia, Spain, Thailand, and Ukraine, among others, will get the film on June 7, with the United Kingdom, Vietnam, Austria, and Bulgaria getting the movie on June 8.
The first Jurassic World’s opening weekend still ranks number four on the all time list, after Avengers: Infinity War, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
A third film has already been greenlit. It will be directed by Colin Trevorrow, who returns to the franchise after helming the first movie, and being fired off Star Wars: Episode IX.
