Weekend Box Office: ‘Jurassic’ Roars Into Record Territory

Jurassic World seems to have defied all odds and opened as the 2nd largest domestic debut in history, and the largest worldwide opening weekend. That’s pretty amazing. It’s honestly only a few million shy from The Avengers, and some insiders are saying it might take the crown when all is said and done. Right now, it’s just projected in #2. An A cinemascore suggests that Jurassic World and Inside Out (which currently has a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes) are going to have a very interesting fight for #1 next weekend. In other news, Spy held really well in week 2, dropping only 45% up against very formidable competition. Insidious Chapter 3 dove 67% in week 2, fairly typical for a horror flick. Entourage dropped 57%, not very encouraging either. On the flip side, Pitch Perfect 2 only dipped 20%, Love and Mercy dipped 16%, and Mad Max and Avengers both kept their drops below 50%. Also opening this week was Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl, which took its solid reviews to 210K and a 14K per screen average (besting every film reported so far except Jurassic World).
