Jurassic World sequel still roaring at the top of box office

'Jurassic World 2' takes No. 1 again

Fallen Kingdom is still at the top of the food chain, bringing in an estimated $60 million for its second weekend at the domestic box office.

Universal Pictures' blockbuster sequel Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is on track to earn an estimated $60 million in ticket sales at 4,485 theaters in the USA and Canada, topping the box office for a second frame while holding off solid debuts from Uncle Drew and Sicario: Day of the Soldado. The sequel is still well behind 2015's Jurassic World which finished its theatrical run with $652 million domestically and $1.67 billion worldwide.

Infinity War, Deadpool 2 and Incredibles 2, June has closed on a high note, with the summer's revenue reportedly up 15.3% from past year at this time.

The Incredibles 2 is poised to become the biggest animated film ever, after a third strong weekend at the domestic box office.

Critics' reviews were mixed, though audiences gave Fallen Kingdom an A-minus CinemaScore. The concluding chapter in the trilogy was given a release date of June 11, 2021 back in February.

Rafe Spall, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, James Cromwell, Toby Jones, Ted Levine, B.D. Wong, Isabella Sermon, Geraldine Chapman, and Jeff Goldblum also star in the film, which was directed by J.A. Bayona (A Monster Calls) based on a script from the first film's Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly.

In a battle for third place, Sony's borderland thriller Sicario: Day of the Soldado and Lionsgate's basketball comedy Uncle Drew are both exceeding expectations, with the former film grossing about $19 million from 3,055 theaters and the latter taking in about $15.5 million from 2,742 theaters.

Like "Sicario 2", Lionsgate's sports comedy "Uncle Drew" - based on the Pepsi commercial starring National Basketball Association icon Kyrie Irving - also served as counterprogramming against a series of superhero tentpoles. Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Catherine Keener, Sophia Bush, and Brad Bird also lend their voices to the film, which Bird wrote and directed. That takes the Disney-Pixar sequel's domestic total up to $438.8 million in three weeks. Uncle Drew was directed by Charles Stone III, written by Jay Longino and produced by Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey.
