Universal’s “Jurassic World” is looking set to score the third biggest opening of the season so far following “Furious 7” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron”.
Early estimates for the domestic box-office haul for this coming weekend were at around $100 million a few weeks back. Those have been upgraded with the latest being around $110-140 million.
Overseas, the film is looking to do anywhere from around $240-300 million in around sixty-six international territories where the film is opening at the same time as the United States. The film is also expected to have legs as there’s little real competition in the same genre until “Terminator: Genisys” in three weeks time.
The first reviews have also started coming in with a very mixed reaction to the film with some stern critics either praising it or ripping it to shreds. Check out the reviews so far at Rotten Tomatoes.
