As we told you one week ago, J.A. Bayona’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has already embarked on its overseas roll-out, ahead of the U.S. theatrical release this coming weekend. Last weekend, Fallen Kingdom scooped up $151 million in 48 markets, giving it the franchise’s biggest opening weekend to date in 15 international markets!
The overseas theatrical release continued this past weekend, and Variety reports this morning that Fallen Kingdom‘s worldwide total is now up to $370 million. The site notes, “Fallen Kingdom earned an additional $173.6 million in 51 international territories this weekend, including $111.8 from its launch in China.”
“The Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment sequel saw strong holds in the United Kingdom and Ireland ($9.3 million), Korea ($6.4 million), Germany ($4.8 million), and France ($4.3 million). It releases in Australia and Brazil on June 21, Mexico on June 22, and Japan on July 13.”
Fallen Kingdom is expected to have a domestic opening weekend somewhere in the ballpark of $140-$150 million, a bit less than Jurassic World‘s $208 million U.S. start.
Worldwide, the mega-hit Jurassic World raked in $1,671,713,208 in 2015, so Fallen Kingdom still has a long road ahead if it hopes to top its gargantuan predecessor.
Fallen Kingdom arrives here in the States on June 22.
