With today’s grosses, Universal’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom crossed the $400 million mark at the North American box office, making it the second-highest release in studio history in North America (after the first Jurassic World). With an international total to date of $846.7 million and a global total of $1.248 billion, it’s also the third highest-grossing movie worldwide in Universal’s history after Jurassic World and Fast and Furious 7. In China alone, the sequel took in an impressive $260 million.
Additionally, with today’s box office totals from all current Universal releases – including Fallen Kingdom, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Skyscraper, and The First Purge – the studio has officially topped $2 billion at the international box office for just the fourth time in its history.
While Fallen Kingdom’s final domestic total is slated to come in sharply below Jurassic World’s $652.2 million, this is nonetheless a hugely successful performance for a film that essentially no one expected to perform at the record-breaking level of its predecessor. For 2018, Fallen Kingdom currently stands as the fourth highest-grossing title domestically, the third-highest globally, and the second-highest internationally. In addition, it now sits at No. 32 on the list of top grossers of all time in North America, just edging out Disney’s Frozen ($400.73 million).
