Home Movies Box Office Fizz: “Jurassic World” Sequel Opens 17% Down in Previews from...

The dinosaur world is in high alert this morning.

Last night, “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” made $15.3 million in previews. Sounds good, but that’s down 17% from the first “Jurassic World” in 2015.

If last night and tonight don’t add up to $50 million, the weekend take could be less than $130 million. And that was a number really hoped for.

As I wrote yesterday, Universal anticipated this and made a smart move. They released “Fallen Kingdom” internationally before the bad news could turn into bad buzz and swept up $450 million. They’ve made their money back. Whatever happens now won’t hurt them too much except PR wise.

The third installment — you have to believe they’re going to finish this thing– will have to be actually written. And Chris Pratt will have to seem like he’s happy to be there.

Share and Enjoy !
