#BOXOFFICE: “JURASSIC WORLD” HAS A MONSTROUS DEBUT
Just wow! JURASSIC WORLD blew away the competition this weekend with a stunning $200-million opening for Universal Pictures. Opening in 3,274 theatres, the Blockbuster bests its three Predecessors in the beloved Franchise in terms of opening. By comparison Jurassic Park 3 managed to make $181 million in its lifetime at the Box Office in 2001. This latest Installment eclipsed that Film already in its opening weekend. Audiences gave it a firm A at CinemaScore, although Critics were a bit shakier on it with a 70% on the Tomatometer.
SPY after a strong debut last weekend for 20th Century Fox, slips to second this week with $15 million. In its run so far domestically it has made $56 million.
SAN ANDREAS lands in third in its third week out with $10 million for Warner Bros. It has grossed $118 million thus far.
INSIDIOUS 3 is in fourth in its second week out with $8 million for Focus Features/eOne Films.
PITCH PERFECT 2 is in fifth with $5.7 million for Universal Pictures, tallying $170 million in five weeks.
LOVE & MERCY plays in only 572 theatres but rounds-out the Top Ten with $1.5 million for Roadside Attractions/eOne Films.
