We still have to wait until next week – June 22, to be precise – to see J.A. Bayona’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom here in the States, but Universal actually already released the film in 48 overseas markets over the weekend. And it’s scaring up big numbers already, amassing $151.1 million dollars overseas this past weekend.
As Bayona himself tweeted yesterday, “[Fallen Kingdom is] the Biggest Opening Weekend in the Jurassic World franchise in 15 markets.”
Box Office Mojo breaks it all down…
“The film topped the charts in all 48 markets and included the studio’s largest openings all-time in Hong Kong ($4.3m) and South Korea ($27.2m). Additional openings included $19.9 million in the UK & Ireland as well as France ($10m), Spain ($9.5m), Germany ($9.1m), Taiwan ($8.4m), Russia ($8m), India ($7.9m), Indonesia ($5.2m), Thailand ($4.7m), Italy ($4.5m), Malaysia ($4.1m), Philippines ($4m), Singapore ($2.9m) and Netherlands ($2.6m). The film will hit theaters in North America on June 22 and will continue to roll-out in in 21 more overseas territories over the next month, including China on June 15, Australia and Brazil on June 21, Mexico on June 22 and Japan on July 13.”
Worldwide, the record-breaking Jurassic World raked in $1,671,713,208 back in 2015, so Fallen Kingdom has a long road ahead if it hopes to top its gargantuan predecessor.
