‘Jurassic World Dominion’ Leaves Big Footprint With $143M+ Opening, Not Far From ‘Fallen Kingdom’s Debut – Sunday Box Office

After blazing to a Friday revenue of $59.6 million, Jurassic World Dominion ate up an estimated $143.4 million from 4,676 locations in its domestic debut.

The summer tentpole grossed a total of $389 million worldwide on Sunday, as the box office recovery continued.

Top Gun: Maverick, the third entry in Universal and Amblin's Jurassic World trilogy, easily topped the weekend, while crowd favorite

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom slid to No. 2 in its third trip. However, as it reaches the $400 million mark in the United States, Top Gun 2 continues to outperform.

The Paramount and Skydance film grossed another $50 million in the United States, bringing its domestic total to $393.3 million.

Dominion is one of the few Hollywood tentpoles to be given a release date in China, where it grossed a promising $52.2 million in its first weekend.

While it may fall short of Fallen Kingdom ($111 million) from a few years ago, Dominion will certainly be the biggest Hollywood opening in China this year, surpassing The Batman's underwhelming $12.1 million debut in March.

(Political concerns have prevented Beijing censors from releasing some of 2022's top Hollywood earners, like as Paramount's Top Gun: Maverick and Marvel's Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.)

Dominion faces a much more dismal Chinese film market than when Fallen Kingdom was released. Despite the fact that many cities, including Shanghai,

have just emerged from economically harmful COVID lockdowns, around 23% of cinemas across the country remain closed as a public health precaution, and consumer activity continues to be curtailed.
