Jurassic World 2 Chomps Down on $15.3M Thursday Box Office

Jurassic World 2 Chomps Down on $15.3M Thursday Box Office

The Last Jedi's opening weekend fell 11% from The Force Awakens' and if the tracking proves accurate, Fallen Kingdom will open 31%-36% behind Jurassic World, which went on to gross $1.671 billion worldwide.

By the end of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Maisie Lockwood (Isabella Sermon) frees the surviving dinosaurs from their cages and potential death due to a hydrogen cyanide leak. However, most would agree that "Jurassic Park 3" is not exactly a cinematic masterpiece. Regardless, it's the only movie opening in theaters this weekend, and it's expected to fare quite well, although it has already more than doubled the $170 million budget from its impressive performance overseas. While it's projected to open with far less than its predecessor, it will be interesting to see if it can still come close to Jurassic World's worldwide tally. The film also marks the return of Jurassic Park star Jeff Goldblum, who is reprising his role as the smooth-talking mathematician Ian Malcolm.

5 new features for Android Messages roll out, including a desktop version
If someone sends you a link in a chat - or if you send them a link - Messages will give an inline preview of that link's contents. Curiously, there is no integration with Chromecast yet, so you won't be able to cast a show to a Chromecast-equipped speaker.

A post-credits scene for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom gives audiences a clue as to what the third installment of this trilogy will explore. After the events of 2015's Jurassic World, the park run by Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) was completely destroyed.
