Dinosaurs rose and records fell as Universal Pictures’ *Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom* opened at No.1 in the Philippines, amassing an extinction-proof P213.8-million opening weekend gross in five days (June 6 – June 10).
Clearly a box-office winner despite the rainy weather, the J.A. Bayona-helmed sequel to the 2015 classic franchise reboot registered Universal Pictures’ second biggest opening weekend of all time, (behind its predecessor, *Jurassic World*, which was released over a 3-day Independence day weekend).
The film’s opening day gross of P38-M, also broke the record for the biggest non-holiday opening day for a Universal title; and the biggest opening day for *Jurassic Park/World* franchise.
The Chris Pratt-starrer is predicted to continue enjoying robust box-office receipts as more fans are expected to troop to the cinemas when the rain stops and the due to the holidays.
Internationally, *Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom* bowed in 48 foreign markets and is looking at an estimated full weekend opening of $151.1-million worldwide.
Currently, *Fallen Kingdom* has scored the fifth-biggest international opening weekend of 2018.
