Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is off to a thunderous start in China this weekend, enjoying a huge $34.4-Million opening in the Middle Kingdom. That's double the $17.5-Million opening earned by Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World, and the film is already on its way to earning the second biggest opening of the year in that country.
Analysts predict that Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will have a monstrous run this summer, and will most likely earn around $228-Million from China - around what the last film did in 2015.
As of right now, the J.A. Bayona film has already brought in over $202.3-Million internationally, not including the money from China, and by the time the final numbers are released on Monday morning, it could already be past the $400-Million mark worldwide.
And that's before the film's North American opening next week.
Are you excited for the theatrical release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom?
It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.
When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.
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. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, B.D. Wong, James Cromwell, Ted Levine, and Justice Smith, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom arrives in theaters on June 22nd.
