‘Jurassic World Dominion’ Crosses $1 Billion Globally

Never doubt dinosaurs. Jurassic World Dominion, the latest installment in Universal’s Tyrannosaurus-sized movie franchise, has finally crossed the $1 billion mark worldwide.

It took over four months to get there, making “Dominion” one of the slowest movies to gross $1 billion in the original series. Other blockbusters that reached $1 billion after playing on the big screen for three months or more include “Finding Dory”, “Zootopia” and “Frozen”. That’s relatively quick compared to “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” which took at least two decades and a few reissues to join the club. But hey, a win is a win.

“Jurassic World Dominion” opened for $145 million in early June, the second largest domestic opening weekend of the year, after “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” ($187 million). To date, “Dominion” has raised $376 million at the domestic box office and $624 million internationally. Only three films — including “Spider-Man: No Way Home” and “Top Gun: Maverick” — reached the $1 billion milestone in pandemic times. Unlike those movies, “Dominion” had the advantage of being set in China, where it grossed $158 million.

In North America, “Jurassic World Dominion” is the third highest-grossing film of the year, after “Top Gun: Maverick” ($709 million) and “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” ($411 million). . Elsewhere, the most profitable markets were Mexico ($43 million), Japan ($42 million), the UK ($40 million) and France ($29 million).

Even with a mighty $1 billion in the bank, “Dominion” failed to live up to its predecessors in box office ticket sales, as sixth entries in decades-old properties are common. “Jurassic World,” which rebooted the popular sci-fi series in 2015, ended its theatrical run with $1.6 billion worldwide, while its 2018 sequel “Fallen Kingdom” took in $1.3 billion worldwide. The franchise’s numerous installments have collectively generated more than $6 billion worldwide, making “Jurassic” an apex predator at the box office.

Colin Trevorrow directed “Dominion”, which takes place after Isla Nublar is destroyed and dinosaurs now live and hunt freely alongside humanity. The film united original “Jurassic Park” stars Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum and Laura Dern with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, who are the lead roles of the sequel trilogy.
