According to Box Office Mojo. JW:FK made just under $61 million domestically in its second weekend at the box office.


It's made $943 million overall so far.


I guess the real question is how much it will drop once Ant-Man and The Wasp comes out. Granted, it was going to lose the top spot anyway, but considering how much of the fans and GA don't like this movie, I can't help but wonder if it will simply get destroyed.

It going to get "destroyed" regardless in it's third week simply by virtue of the fact that it's in its third week and the next big blockbuster happens to be right around the corner.

At this rate, eventually yes. It will might make to $1.2 billion, but it will have a hard time ahead of it.

People thought that about JW as well when Inside Out came out a week after it. And it took 3 weeks for that movie to overtake JW. And even then it was only by $1-$1.1 million.

This is different. Between Black Panther going on a 5 week box office warpath and making over $1.3 billion and Avengers: Infinity War making over $2 billion, the MCU has been destroying competition left and right. If this recent JP/JW movie had a better word of mouth, then it via its marketing power and brand name would have held up much better, despite it losing the top spot. That is not the case here.

The difference being that Inside Out was released the week after JW, so JW was still going strong, whereas Fallen Kingdom will have been out for three weeks (and longer overseas) by the time Ant Man comes out. Not remotely similar situations.

While in theory I do agree that FK would most certainly have had more legs had the film been more well received (and said as much earlier in the thread), there is usually a pretty significant drop in numbers between OG and sequel, regardless of the sequels quality. We need not look outside of this franchise for proof, as TLW, while still extremely successful, didn't come close to touching JP's numbers.

I find it hard to believe that a perceived improvement in the quality of the film would have boosted FK's numbers to an degree that's being implied.

At the end of the day, the film has performed extremely well, and will end it's run well over a billion dollars. On a personal level, I can see how that might irk some people who didn't care for the film, and understand why some may want to downplay it.

Actually, it's been getting more love as time has gone by. If anything else, what you said applies to JP3 more then anything else.

More than $11M on Tuesday, which means it's having good legs. It will surpass $300M by this Thursday. Might even reach $400M domestic at the end of its run, if it holds well. We'll see.

If Youtube and movie website comments are anything to go by, I still often see a surprising amount of people who like TLW the least out of the original trilogy, and prefer JP/// simply because it's shorter and "less boring". Plus a lot of people seem to consider it one of Spielberg's worst films in general.

I'm really surprised by that. I guess they don't know how badly JP3 damaged the brand or know about all the production values. Only Chris Stuckmann likes TLW over JP3 by a large margin.

I'm one of those people who watched both JP and TLW in theaters (I was 10 years in 1993), read the books, played the games, fell in love with that whole world way before JP3 came out, and I loved TLW. I still do, and I still see it as more of a "real" JP film than JP3. But JP3 fascinates me. I -know- it's bad, I -know- it has a stupid script, but I still love it for how, in the words of the late great Roger Ebert, "it's a nice little thrill-machine", and I love some of the spectacular visuals it provides, so I always find myself returning to it for these reasons, so not all people who like this movie are dumb or simply nostalgic about JP3 because they grew up with it (because I didn't, I grew up with the original).

Actually, maybe "love" is a strong word, but I like the movie for what it is, and I find myself watching it more often than TLW (which I still find to be a better and more intelligent movie).

To be fair, most of the GA seems to like (or at least, prefer) JP/// in a B-movie sense, where as they admit TLW tries to be profound but for them, it fails. It was nice to see some reviewers like Chris Stuckmann give it some love for a change.

I agree actually, JP/// always has been and likely always will be my least favorite film in the franchise, but I never hated it like a lot of fans do. It has nostalgic value to me and I like that it tried to switch things up with the Spinosaurus, Pteranodons, and Raptor behavior. I watched it again recently and something about it that I never really appreciated were the animatronics, aside from the Spinosaurus in the plane scene they look really good, especially the Raptors are some of the best looking in the whole series. Especially after JW and FK where animatronics are more scarce (almost non-existent in JW's case).

It did just over $7 million domestic on Thursday. It looks like a huge drop, but it's expected.

It's a 38% drop, actually a better result than expected, since some predicted a 50% drop.

No, it did beat Solo hands down. Solo bombed quite hard.

I'm just glad it's doing well, no matter how much people did or didnt like the film, because it guarantees a third film and potential spin off/expanded universe material. Hollywood is going to chase that money and if they know Jurassic World/Park can get them enough money, they probably will

You know, JW actually did less than what JP and TLW did in Japan. FK could theoretically increase from JW there. Probably not gonna happen, but still.

In it's 3rd weekend, this movie made over $28.6 million.

So far, it's made just under $1.061 billion.
