‘Jurassic World Dominion’ Roaring To $386M Global Through Sunday

#Jurassic #World #Dominion #Roaring #386M #Global #Sunday

SATURDAY UPDATE: Universal/Amblin Entertainment’s Jurassic World Dominion is storming to a projected $386M worldwide cume through Sunday. In its second offshore frame, it added 57 new markets, after releasing early in 15 last session. The international box office cume through Friday is $135M including the new hubs and the holdovers. Through Sunday, it’s estimated to land a full overseas weekend of $175M, lifting the running offshore total to $244M.

In the same suite of new international markets this session, and at today’s rates, 2015’s Jurassic World opened to $226M ($187M excluding previews) while 2028’s Fallen Kingdom bowed to $227M ($212M excluding previews).

Even though JWD is coming in lower than those movies, it is ahead of pre-weekend projections, notably with strong play in China where it’s on track to hit $50M+ through tomorrow. This will instantly make the Colin Trevorrow-directed threequel the No. 1 Hollywood release of 2022 there, overtaking Universal’s own The Bad Guys.

There are currently about 80% of cinemas open in China — all of Shanghai remains closed, and some of Beijing. Critical and social scores are lower versus the previous movies (8.1 on Maoyan and 6.5 on Douban), but the market has been starved for major action tentpoles. The opening day Friday ($14.9M/99.8M RMB) was by far the biggest launch for an imported title in 2022, and the 3rd highest since the beginning of the pandemic. Saturday grossed an estimated $21.2M (142M RMB), landing the highest single-day performance by an imported film this year. It is also the first time that any film has grossed over 100M RMB on a single day since Feb 14, during the Chinese New Year holidays.

FRIDAY UPDATE: Universal/Amblin Entertainment’s Jurassic World Dominion is putting its dino-print out in an additional 57 overseas markets this weekend after stomping into 15 early hubs last session. Through Thursday, the Colin Trevorrow-directed threequel has grossed $95.1M at the international box office. When including Friday’s China start, that rises to $110.4M.

China, as we noted in this week’s global preview, is a key swing this session. The market has been hobbled in the past several months by Covid lockdowns and restrictions that slowly have started to ease.

The Friday debut of JWD in the PRC, a market that has embraced the previous pics, was on 60,000 screens and grossed 89M RMB ($14.6M) for a total of 103.83M RMB ($15.3M) including Thursday previews. That’s slightly below the opening day for 2015’s Jurassic World (109.7M RMB). JWD dominated the market with 90% of total box office and contributed to the first time that China has grossed over 100M RMB on a single day since February. JWD is also by far the biggest opening for an imported title in 2022, and the third-biggest since the beginning of the pandemic, only beaten by last year’s Fast 9 (378.7M RMB) and Godzilla Vs Kong (137M RMB), both of which released in less impaired market times.

There are about 75% of cinemas open in the country, with capacity restrictions in place. All moviehouses are still shuttered in Shanghai, and Beijing is only partially open — with a number of leading theaters in the capital having been ordered to close again since Thursday.

China’s social scores are just beginning to come in with JWD at 8.2 on Maoyan versus 8.6 for Fallen Kingdom and 9.1 for Jurassic World.

In total, the reteam of Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard — which also sees the return of legacy cast members Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum — will be in 72 overseas markets through Friday. The UK notably bows today across 700 locations and 2,250 screens.

Major holdovers include Mexico (at $23.2M through Thursday) and Korea ($19.M).

In other new openers during the week, France led with the biggest launch day of 2022 at 338K admissions, including previews to edge Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (335K admissions). The France gross through Thursday is $3.7M.

Australia opened to $1.3M at No.1 with a 61% share. The initial debut was at 285 locations with rollup to 303 through the weekend.

Germany started on Wednesday and is now at $2.2M through Thursday. Spain had the biggest Thursday opening for any film this year with $952K — almost three times Top Gun: Maverick, and with 82% market share.

Malaysia bowed to $613K from a half-day of previews on Wednesday, achieving the third-biggest single preview day ever for Universal (behind Fast 8 and Hobbs & Shaw). It continued with $967K on Thursday for a running total of $1.6M. This marks the second-biggest opening day of 2022 (behind Doctor Strange 2) and the fourth-biggest Universal opening of all time (behind Fast 7, Fast 8 and Jurassic World).

Here’s a breakdown of further markets: Middle East opened to $1.5M combined; Indonesia is now at $1.4M. Taiwan added $708K in previews on Wednesday, taking 70% of the market share across 424 screens. The result was almost double the Wednesday previews for Top Gun: Maverick and almost 3x Thursday previews for No Time To Die. Cume is $1.2M through Thursday.
 
Singapore slinged to the biggest Universal Wednesday previews of all time and the best of the franchise with $313K. The Netherlands, which began previews last week, has banked $1.8M to-date.

Travis Barker has enjoyed a relaxing weekend with wife Kourtney Kardashian after his horrific bout of pancreatitis that left him in “excruciating” pain.

In photos shared to both his and Kardashian’s Instagram accounts, the couple revealed a sweet day-date they went on to the beach. Barker was even seen walking into his recording studio in Calabasas, California this week.

The Blink-182 drummer fell ill last week with the illness, which refers to the inflammation of the pancreas and causes symptoms of nausea, intense stomach pain and vomiting.

After falling ill, Barker, his children and Kardashian shared a slew of concerning and ambiguous posts about his health.

He later explained to fans that the flare-up had followed a routine endoscopy he had on Monday, June 27. By Wednesday, June 29, the 46-year-old rocker had been rushed to West Hills Hospital and Medical Center.

“I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling great,” he wrote on his Instagram Story. “But after dinner, I developed excruciating pain and I have been hospitalised ever since.

“During the endoscopy, I had a very small polyp removed right in the very sensitive area, usually handled by specialists, which unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube. This resulted in severe life-threatening pancreatitis.”

Now, however, the rocker appears to be making a smooth recovery, with plenty of friends and family surrounding him.

While Kardashian made sure to get some fresh air with Barker, hiring a vintage orange ute that they later took down to the beach, fans and friends shared wishes of goodwill.

The singer’s mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, also made sure to show her support, sending Barker a sweet bouquet of orange flowers and a note.

Judging by the orange theme, it seems this could be Barker’s favourite colour.

The note from Jenner and her beau Corey Gamble read: “Dear Travis, Get well soon!!! We love you, Kris and Corey.”

Oh, and Will confirms that Vecna didn’t die and is just hurt, and they need to kill Vecna orrrrr everyone will die. Cool, cool, cool…

Exclusive: Real World Homecoming's Danny Roberts Argues the Handling of His HIV Journey Failed Pedro Zamora – TalkOfNews.com

Real World Homecoming's Danny Roberts Argues the Handling of His HIV Journey Failed Pedro Zamora

#Real #World #Homecoming039s #Danny #Roberts #Argues #Handling #HIV #Journey #Failed #Pedro #Zamora

While Danny said he appreciated that Homecoming “genuinely focused on my mental health journey,” he argued it not only did a disservice to his own story, but also those that came before him.

“What I want heard more than anything is that this was a failure to honor their own previous work and Pedro Zamora,” Danny said, “which was so important and forgotten.”

Pedro appeared on The Real World: San Francisco in 1994 and became one of the first openly gay men living with HIV to be seen on television. Zamora died of an AIDS-related illness on November 11, 1994 at the age of 22, just hours after the Real World: San Francisco finale aired.

In a statement to the Los Angeles Times, Bunim/Murray Productions—the production company responsible for The Real World—responded to Danny’s allegations that the HIV storyline was cut, saying it “has never shied away from sharing stories around HIV and AIDS” since the franchise premiered in 1992.

“The Homecoming series ultimately focused on Danny’s mental health journey,” a Bunim/Murray statement said, “which he shared publicly with all his former roommates for the first time.”
