Box office top 20: 'Jurassic World' debuts with $148M

NEW YORK (AP) — "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" was never expected to approach the record-setting heights of 2015's "Jurassic World," but it still took a mighty bite out of the box office with a $148 million debut, according to final ticket sales figures Monday.

The opening proved that the 25-year-old "Jurassic Park" franchise remains a massive draw, even when trailed by mediocre reviews. The follow-up to "Jurassic World" (which debuted with $208.8 million three years ago) earned just a 50 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. But audiences gave it an A-minus CinemaScore.

After opening with an animated-feature record $182.7 million last week, Pixar's acclaimed "Incredibles 2" slid to second with $80.3 million. Rarely have two such popular films filled theaters at once. The weekend's total ticket sales ranked as one Hollywood's biggest overall weekends ever.
