Sci Fi Box Office: Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Holds at Number 1

By | July 3, 2018

The Number 1 and 2 movies remained the same this past weekend as Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom held at the top spot with The Incredibles 2 right behind it. The Jurassic World sequel is at $266 million domestically after two weeks, and getting an early start worldwide has the film already approaching $1 billion globally. As for the animated superhero film, that one is at $441 million domestically after its third week and should be turning a profit for Disney already. Further down in the ranks, Deadpool 2 slipped to 7, but its $720 million globally should have turned that one into a profitable film. Solo: A Star Wars Story slipped to Number 9, and it has only made $370 million worldwide thus far. The horror film Hereditary slipped to Number 11, but its $39 million domestic tally has that one performing well against a $10 million budget. Avengers: Infinity War slipped out of the Top 10 for the first time, but at over $2 million globally that film has made a healthy profit in its theatrical run (before Hollywood Accounting is factored in). Spring holdover Rampage remained in the Top 20 after returning last week and it is approaching $100 million in the States. It has already amassed $425 million globally, so it should be in the black.

The First Purge bows in the theaters tomorrow and it is followed on Friday by Ant-Man and the Wasp on July 6th. You can see trailer for those and more below and our full Summer preview of sci fi and fantasy movies is at this link.
