JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM Off To A Thunderous Start In China; Aiming For 2nd-Biggest Opening Of The Year

Following a strong international rollout last week, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is off to a thunderous start in China as well, having racked up well over $34 million on its first day of release.

Multiple sources are reporting that Universal's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opened to $34.4 million on Friday and is already well on its way to scoring the second-biggest opening weekend of the year in the Middle Kingdom, behind only Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War ($199.3M). 

The film has already doubled the $17.5 million opening day for 2015's Jurassic World, which scored a $99.2 million 5-day start in China. Current projects believe that 
Fallen Kingdom will top that haul in its first three days as it kicks off what should be a monstrous summer run. Its predecessor ultimately topped off with $228.7 million from China and all signs are currently pointing toward a similar outcome this time around. 

Overall, the J.A. Bayona-directed film has brought in over $202.3 million at the international box office (not including China) and, once the final numbers come in on Monday, the blockbuster could already be well past the $400 million mark worldwide. There's also a decent chance that it tops $500 million before it opens in the United States on June 22, which would be an incredibly impressive accomplishment. 

So, what do you guys think? Sound off with your thoughts below!

It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.

When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.

With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
