This Friday’s release of Jurassic World is certainly going to be one of the biggest blockbusters of the year, if current ticket sales are any indication.
According to Variety, Jurassic World is officially outpacing all of last year’s blockbusters, including the likes of Guardians of the Galaxy, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Transformers: Age of Extinction. Major movie ticket sites like Fandango and MovieTickets.com are reporting that ticket sales continue to be robust, as we’re now three days out from the film’s wide release across the country. One major figure that seems to be in play is that Jurassic World is accounting for a staggering 90% of all weekend ticket sales.
Additionally, Jurassic World is also looking to set records for its own franchise. The biggest weekend opener of the series was for 1997’s The Lost World: Jurassic Park, which debuted on Memorial Day weekend with a haul of just over $90 million. As it stands right now, Jurassic World is on track to make a very strong $115 million in its opening weekend, which is anywhere between 63-76% of its budget, which is believed to be anywhere between $150-180 million.
Although reviews won’t be posted until later in the week, general reaction to press screenings seemed positive. Our review of the film will post on Friday morning.
