Ahead of the film’s release here in the United States this week, Jurassic World Dominion first opened in 15 international markets over the weekend, including Korea, Mexico, Brazil and Italy. We’ve learned this morning that Dominion stomped its way to a massive $55.4 million opening in those markets, $10 million higher than estimates heading into the weekend.

How does that compare to the previous two Jurassic World movies? Jurassic World made $47.3 million in the same markets back in 2015, with Fallen Kingdom stomping its way to $59.8 million in those markets back in 2018. Both films went on to make well over $1 billion globally, and we expect Jurassic World Dominion will follow suit when all is said and done.

Jurassic World Dominion opens wide in US theaters beginning Thursday, June 9!
