Jurassic World 2 is #1
Jurassic World 2 opened to huge numbers, debuting with $150 million in its opening weekend. The Incredibles 2, the previous week's #1, came in 2nd with $81 million. Jurassic World 2-Fallen Kingdom opened overseas three weeks ago and is well in its way to $1 billion worldwide. For the next two weeks the movie industry is expecting a tight 1-2 battle for the two movies which are aimed at the same family audience.
However in two weeks Ant Man and The Wasp debuts followed by Hotel Transylvania 3 the week after that. With the exception of a few adult oriented films like Benicio del Torro's Sicario 2, a sequel to the 2015 movie about the U.S. Mexico drug war, Denzel Washington's Equalizer 2, and Mission: Impossible-Fallout starring Tom Cruise, family films, aimed at the kids on summer vacation, are expected to rule the summer box office.
Other eagerly anticipated movies this summer are Spike Lee's Black KKKlansman, opening in August, and Dewayne Johnson's Skyscraper opening on July 13th.
