Despite getting more mixed reactions from fans and critics, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom still managed to have a monster sized opening weekend at the Box Office. The movie has already outgrossed Solo: A Star Wars Story worldwide!

As reported by Box Office Pro, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opened to an impressive $150 million in North America in its three day opening weekend.

It's down from the $208.8 million opening of Jurassic World, although estimates are higher than what was first projected.

The only thing that could be stopping its momentum is that word of mouth is not going to be as strong as the previous movie.

On Rotten Tomatoes the film has a critics rating of only 50 percent while the Cinemascore for the film sits at an "A-".

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has opened in other countries for two weeks now and the global tally now stands at $711.5 million.

This is already around twice the amount of money earned compared to $353 million brought in worldwide by Disney/Lucasfilm's Solo A Star Wars Story. With this in mind, the dinosaur movie should have no trouble grossing over $1 billion worldwide.

Things fare better for Disney when it comes to The Incredibles 2.

Its second weekend was a healthy $80.9 million taking its domestic total to $350.3 million. At this rate, the animated superhero movie should be able to reach $500 million by the end of its domestic run.

Anyway, both Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and The Incredibles 2 should rule the Box Office for the next few weeks until Marvel releases Ant-Man and the Wasp in the first week of July.
