Jurassic World Dominion Crosses $1 Billion at Global Box Office
Jurassic World Dominion
Jurassic World Dominion was released in theaters back in June, and its theatrical and extended editions are currently available to purchase and watch on Peacock. The film wound up having the worst critics score of the entire Jurassic franchise on Rotten Tomatoes with a 29%. ComicBook.com gave the film a 3.5 out of 5 and referred to it as “excessively long but brimming with heart.” In any case, the film wound up faring much better with audiences. The film has a 77% crowd score on Rotten Tomatoes and its CinemaScore is an impressive A-. The film crossed $900 million worldwide back in July, and Variety just reported that it finally crossed the $1 billion imprint.
According to the report, Jurassic World Dominion took four months to come to the $1 billion imprint, which makes it one of the slowest movies to do as such during its original box office run. Dominion opened to $145 million domestically, which was the second-biggest domestic opening this year after Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ $187 million. Dominion’s current total is $376 million at the domestic box office and $624 million at the international box office. The only other movies to procure $1 billion during the pandemic were Spider-Man: Absolutely not a chance Home and Top Firearm: Nonconformist, but Dominion is the only film of the three to get a theatrical release in China. Currently, Absolutely not a chance Home is #6 on the untouched grossing movies list and Nonconformist is #11, but Dominion still has a ways to go to break the top ten, currently standing at #48. Jurassic World is #7 on the list after earning $1,669,979,967 worldwide, and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is #17 on the list after making $1,308,334,005 worldwide.
Jurassic World Dominion stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard star as Owen Grady and Claire Dearing as well as Jurassic Park alums Laura Dern (Ellie Sattler), Sam Neill (Alan Grant), and Jeff Goldblum (Ian Malcolm). The film also features BD Wong as Dr. Henry Wu, Isabella Sermon as Maisie Lockwood, DeWanda Wise as Kayla Watts, Mamoudou Athie as Ramsay Cole, Dichen Lachman as Soyona Santos, and Campbell Scott as Lewis Dodgson. Joining the Jurassic team interestingly is Emily Carmichael, who has crafted the Jurassic World Dominion screenplay with Trevorrow. They worked from a story by Derek Connolly and Colin Trevorrow, who together co-wrote Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
ComicBook.com spoke with Trevorrow earlier this year and asked assuming he had any requirements for the inheritance cast. The director uncovered he contacted the actors to see what they envisioned for their characters nearly 30 years after the original movie.
“I came in with questions for the actors. And for my purposes, I had a feeling of what I would want to see as a fan, but I wanted to understand what Laura Dern, where she felt Ellie Sattler would be at this point in her life and what Sam Neil felt. And I respect these actors so much as the authorities of the characters they play beyond what I might at any point be. And so, there was a lot of listening that went on and what you’re seeing is a result of those conversations. And those scenes are moments that they trusted in. They felt comfortable playing. And I think that’s the reason it works, is because you can tell that’s what they want their character to do,” Trevorrow shared.
Jurassic World: Dominion is out on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-beam, DVD, Digital HD, and available on Peacock.
