How Big Will 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' Be?

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has some big shoes to fill. Its predecessor currently boasts the fourth-biggest opening weekend of all time, and it's the sixth-biggest movie domestically overall. The sequel is going to have a hard time matching that success, especially since it has to deal with a sequel to The Incredibles that dominated the box office last weekend. Read on for this weekend's box-office predictions.

The dinos should take a big bite out the U.S. box office this weekend — just not as big as Jurassic World did three years ago.

Prerelease tracking suggests that Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will debut to $130 million-$140 million in North America. That compares to a mega-debut of $208.8 million for Jurassic World in summer 2016, which, like Star Wars: Force Awakens, benefited from pent-up demand for a franchise that had long been absent from the big screen.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the official sequel to Force Awakens, opened 11 percent behind Force Awakens in North America, or $220 million versus $248 million. If Fallen Kingdom opens in line with tracking, it is looking at a decline of 31 perent-36 percent in ts domestic debut.

Jurassic World 2, from Universal and Amblin, has already earned more than $435 million overseas, where it began rolling out two weeks ago.

This time out, directing duties belonged to Spanish filmmaker J.A. Bayona (The Impossible). Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard once again lead the cast, while Daniella Pineda, Rafe Spall, Isabella Sermon, James Cromwell and Geraldine Chaplin are among the actors joining the franchise for the first time.

The story follows Pratt and Howard's characters as they rush to help rescue the dinosaurs on the abandoned island of Isla Nublar after a volcano erupts. However, they uncover a menacing conspiracy when the evacuation leads to a secret dino-encampment on the mainland of America.

Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley produced Fallen Kingdom, with Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow — who helmed Jurassic World — executive producing.

Jurassic World, which revitalized the long-dormant franchise, ultimately grossed $1.671 million at the global box office, one of the top showings of all time, not adjusted for inflation.

No other movie dared open opposite Jurassic World 2. However, that doesn't mean the dino won't have competition. Disney and Pixar's Incredibles 2 is poised to do formidable business in its sophomore outing — think $80 million-$90 million, one of the biggest second weekends of all time — after blowing past all expectations in debuting to a record-shattering $182.7 million.
