Early box office predictions suggest that Jurassic World Dominion could beat Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness opening weekend numbers.
Jurassic World Dominion could become the biggest opening weekend of 2022, taking the record from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Jurassic World Dominion is the third film in the Jurassic World trilogy and the sixth film in the Jurassic Park franchise. It is set to unite the principal cast members from both branches of the Jurassic franchise. Dominion was originally set to open in theaters in 2021 but was delayed by a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic effect on production.
Anticipation was high for Jurassic World when it opened in 2015, but many were shocked when the film opened to $ 208 million dollars to become the biggest opening weekend of all time at that point, beating out The Avengers for the record and also coming out ahead of it’s highly anticipated sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron that very same summer. While Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom did open quite a bit lower with $ 147 million in its opening weekend, it was still the fourth biggest opening weekend of 2018 and went on to gross $ 1 billion worldwide like its predecessor. Jurassic World Dominion is marketing itself as the final chapter in a saga that began in 1993 and is hoping for a big box office payout.
According to the site Boxoffice Proearly tracking for Jurassic World Dominion predicts the film will open between $ 165 million to $ 205 million. If it opens on the high end, it will beat out Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness as the biggest opening weekend of 2022. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness opened to an impressive $ 187 million in its first three days becoming the biggest opening of director Sam Raimi’s career.
Even on the low end of the estimates, Jurassic World Dominion will open higher than Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom but even on the high end, it will still come in $ 3 million below the opening of Jurassic World. If Jurassic World Dominion opens on the lower ends of the estimation and does not beat Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness it will still be the second-biggest opening weekend of the year and will easily beat The Batman’s $ 134 million opening weekend.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness certainly opened high, but word of mouth on the film has been mixed to positive, earning the second-lowest Cinema Score of any MCU film which could impact the film’s hold at the box office. If Jurassic World Dominion takes the opening weekend record, it could become the biggest hit of the summer. While it will still face competition from Thor: Love and Thunder, Lightyearand Universal Picture’s own Minions: The Rise of Gruright now it seems Jurassic World Dominion is coming out heads and shoulders above the competition and could be the biggest movie of summer 2022.
