'Jurassic World 2' Delivers $150M Debut; 'Incredibles 2' Reaches $350M Domestic

'Jurassic World 2' Delivers $150M Debut; 'Incredibles 2' Reaches $350M Domestic
Surpassing expectations, Universal and Amblin Entertainment's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom got off to a strong start. With an estimated $150 million for Fallen Kingdom, this is only the second time ever two different films have brought in over $100 million over two consecutive weekends. The first time was in 2007 when Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End opened with $114.7 million following Shrek the Third's $121.6 million opening the weekend prior. Disney and Pixar's Incredibles 2 followed up its monster debut weekend last week with a second place finish this weekend as its domestic cume has already topped $350 million in just ten days. With an estimated $150 million, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom's opening is down ~28% compared to the $208.8 million debut for its 2015 predecessor. However, given the fact the film was competing with Incredibles 2 for a lot of the same audience, this is a solid start, especially when coupled with an "A-" CinemaScore,

'Jurassic World 2' Roars into Domestic Theaters as 'Incredibles 2' Looks to Hold Strong

'Jurassic World 2' Roars into Domestic Theaters as 'Incredibles 2' Looks to Hold Strong
While it may not appear out of the ordinary, this weekend's release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and its anticipated $100+ million opening will mark only the second time ever that two different films have opened with over $100 million back-to-back at the box office.

The first and last time this happened was in 2007 when Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End opened with $114.7 million following Shrek the Third's $121.6 million opening the weekend prior. In fact, the rarity of what will take place this weekend doesn't end there as only eight times following a $100+ million performance at the weekend box office has a film not repeated at #1 the following weekend. Even more rare, two films have never brought in more than $100 million over the same weekend.

Should Incredibles 2 drop 45.26% or less this weekend we'll have yet another piece of history to discuss come Sunday morning.

How Many of the Top-Grossing Movies of All Time Have You Seen?

How Many of the Top-Grossing Movies of All Time Have You Seen?
Though a film's success isn't based solely on how much money it pulls in, box-office numbers are still crucial to determining what type of movies make it to the big screen. It's no surprise that family-friendly blockbusters, hero flicks, and animated movies bring in the most dough, but some of the films that cracked the list of the 50 highest-grossing movies of all time just may surprise you. Take a look for yourself!

Avatar (2009): $2.7 billion Titanic (1997): $2.1 billion Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015): $2 billion Jurassic World (2015): $1.6 billion Avengers: Infinity War (2018) $1.6 billion Marvel's The Avengers (2012): $1.5 billion Furious 7 (2015): $1.5 billion Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015): $1.4 billion Black Panther (2018): $1.3 billion Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2 (2011): $1.3 billion Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017): $1.3 billion Frozen (2013): $1.2 billion Beauty and the Beast (2017): $1.2 billion The Fate of the Furious (2017): $1.2 billion Iron Man 3 (2013): $1.2 billion

‘Solo’ Thursday Box Office: $14.1 Million Sets Memorial Weekend Record

Lucasfilm's Solo: A Star Wars Story blasted off aboard the Millennium Falcon last night and set a Memorial Day Weekend Record for a Thursday night opening with $14.1 million.

The previous record was held by another Disney film, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, which earned $13.2 million on the same date back in 2007.

Pirates went on to earn $153 million including Thursday night previews for the four-day Memorial Day weekend, which is also a record. Currently Solo is tracking for anywhere between $11o and $150 million depending on who you ask, so it will be a close race to see if the record falls or not.

Compared to the last Star Wars Story, Rogue One, Solo came up way short of expectations. The first standalone Star Wars film earned more than double Solo at $29 million for its Thursday night preview showings.

Audience CinemaScore ratings and word-of-mouth will be critical to Solo's success throughout the weekend.

Lando Bets Away the Falcon in Immersive Solo 360 Video

Lucasfilm has released an interesting 360 degree clip from Solo to announce that tickets for the movie have officially gone on sale. Hardcore fans always knew that the tickets were going to go on sale on Star Wars Day, but it's safe to say that not many saw Lucasfilm releasing the clip where Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian bets the Millennium Falcon in a high stakes game of Sabacc with Alden Ehrenreich's young Han Solo. The 360 experience makes for some funky audio, but the scene is still pretty cool.

The 360 Vr experience allows Star Wars fans to sit on the Sabacc table while Han and Lando exchange insults during the game. Viewers are able to turn around in a full circle, examining the new aliens as well as focus on either Han or Lando during the highs stakes game. Han and Lando meet for the first time in the Solo clip,

Death Note: New Scene Shows The Dynamic Between Light & L, Plus What The Creators Think Of The Movie!

We have eight short days until Netflix releases its film adaptation of the international hit that is Death Note. Just like movies like Okja, Bright, and What Happened to Monday, Death Note is proof of the streaming service’s commitment to creating original films. Yet, of course, with any existing property, Death Note is bound to have tons of rabid fans who are ready to tear it apart at a moment’s notice.

In addition to many fans wanting this movie to be a scene-by-scene reenactment of the 12-volume manga series, we have the additional race issue. Hollywood has a bad habit of whitewashing, and given the white and black (distinctly non-Japanese, in other words) leads of this movie, many fans are already cursing this flick. But what about the original creators? We reported back around San Diego Comic-Con that producer of the film Masi Oka had revealed that they loved the film,

Check Out This Clip From Death Note Featuring Ryuk Introducing Himself To Light

A new clip from Death Note has given us our first good look at Ryuk as he introduces himself to Light, and...well I'll let you go in clean before I soil you with my opinion.

I'm not a fan of shadow Ryuk, so hopefully, we get a little color on the guy and a full picture as the film continues. I also wasn't too crazy about the acting in this scene, and if I'm being honest I didn't like any of what I saw at all. For me, this is a bad sign. Maybe I'm just too cynical to give the film a chance, did anyone feel differently? 

Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power; if the owner inscribes someone's name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with his new godlike abilities,

Memorial Day Weekend Box Office Sinks to Lowest Point Since 1999

Memorial Day Weekend Box Office Sinks to Lowest Point Since 1999
Disney is celebrating another box office win this weekend with its swashbuckling adventure Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. It is coming away with an easy win, earning $77 million over the four-day holiday weekend. That debut also continues a downward box office trend for the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, with the last installment, 2011's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, debuting with $90.1 million in this same weekend frame back in 2011. A new report reveals that this weekend as a whole marks the lowest Memorial Day weekend gross since 1999, when the first Star Wars prequel, The Phantom Menace reigned supreme.

Variety reports that the total box office earnings for this weekend add up to $172.3 million, which is the lowest Memorial Day box office since the $142.5 million total from the Memorial Day four-day frame in 1999, when The Phantom Menace, in its second weekend in theaters, easily won

'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' Top Memorial Day Weekend Box Office as 'Baywatch' Struggles

'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' Top Memorial Day Weekend Box Office as 'Baywatch' Struggles
Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales led the way this Memorial Day weekend while Paramount's Baywatch struggled to match expectations. Meanwhile, Disney's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues to deliver while the studio's Beauty and the Beast became only the eighth film to cross $500 million domestically. Overall, the weekend was down ~15% compared to Memorial Day weekend last year when both X-Men: Apocalypse and Alice Through the Looking Glass delivered underwhelming openings. With an estimated $62 million for the three-day and $76.6 million for the four-day weekend, Disney's fifth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise finished atop the holiday weekend box office. Additionally, the film brought in an estimated $208.4 million internationally, the 12th largest overseas opening of all-time, as it opened in virtually the entire overseas marketplace. This includes a $67.8 million debut in China and an industry record opening in Russia of an estimated $18.6 million. Additional

'Pirates 5' and 'Baywatch' Set Sail Over Memorial Day Weekend

'Pirates 5' and 'Baywatch' Set Sail Over Memorial Day Weekend
Memorial Day weekend brings two new wide releases to theaters in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Paramount's R-rated comedy Baywatch, the latter of which got a head start on the weekend holding preview screenings last night and arriving nationwide today. Neither are necessarily expected to blow the doors off with Pirates looking to finish well behind the last three films, especially Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, which currently holds the Memorial Day opening weekend record of $139.8 million. Meanwhile there are a few questions as to just how high Baywatch will finish as Paramount really could use a win with this one as not one of their four releases this year has managed to hit $45 million domestically. At the top, while it isn't expected to top $100 million for the four day or even the $90.1 million Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides delivered

'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales' Review: More High Seas Hijinks From Johnny Depp

'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales' Review: More High Seas Hijinks From Johnny Depp
Seeing a Pirates of the Caribbean movie these days is a lot like riding the amusement park attraction that inspired the franchise: it's a generally enjoyable time and maybe, just maybe there will be a surprise along the way. Mostly, though, it's the same as the last time you rode it.

Dead Men Tell No Tales -- not to be confused with the similarly titled Dead Man's Chest (aka Pirates 2) -- picks up a thread teased at the end of At World's End (Pirates 3): Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites) is attempting to free his father, Will (Orlando Bloom), from an eternity cursed to the Flying Dutchman. Legend has it that the Trident of Poseidon has the power to do just that, so off Henry goes. There's nothing Disney loves more than daddy issues.

Pirates 5 on Target for Massive $285M Worldwide Box Office Opening

Pirates 5 on Target for Massive $285M Worldwide Box Office Opening
Critics be damned, it looks like Disney has another hit on their hands with Pirates of the Caribbean 5. Johnny Depp is back as Captain Jack Sparrow and audiences around the world are as eager to see him as ever, as the latest Pirates adventure looks like it is going to clean up this weekend at the box office. While there is a wide gap in projections, it looks like Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales could be taking in as much as $285 million globally this Memorial Day weekend.

According to Deadline, Pirates of the Caribbean 5 could bring in anywhere between $230-$285 million globally for the four day weekend. That is a pretty wide margin from the low end to the high end, but if the movie can do anything in the $250 million range worldwide, that would be a huge win for Disney. The last movie in the franchise,

Can Baywatch Beat Pirates 5 at the Memorial Day Box Office?

Can Baywatch Beat Pirates 5 at the Memorial Day Box Office?
Marvel's two-week summer reign came to an end this past weekend, when Alien: Covenant ($36.1 million) unseated Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($34.6 million) in a close race at the box office. The R-rated sci-fi thriller's time at the top of the box office charts will be quite short-lived, though, with this Memorial Day weekend featuring two highly-anticipated movies squaring off against each other, Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, and Paramount's Baywatch, although Baywatch will get a bit of a head start, opening on Thursday, May 25 instead of Friday, May 26. Still, this won't change the fact that Pirates 5 should have no trouble walking away with the box office crown, with a three-day tally of $81.2 million and a four-day total of $96.4 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will be released in more than 4,000 theaters, which is no surprise
