New “Jurassic Park” Movie Makes Its Costs, $151 Million, Abroad, More than “Solo” in 4 Days


“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” is a massive hit and it hasn’t been released in the US yet. That comes a week from Friday.

Over the weekend, the Chris Pratt- Bryce Dallas Howard dino-thon made $151 million in foreign territories.

That means it will easily slice up “Solo: A Star Wars Story” abroad by Monday, and smashingly on the 22nd in the US.

Also, “Fallen Kingdom” carries a $200 mil price tag. That bill will be paid in full upon US release as well.

“Jurassic” Movies are descended from Steven Spielberg. “Solo” is descended from George Lucas. It’s all good.
