Fallen Kingdom scores $15.3 million in domestic Thursday previews

Although not the paragon that the original dino-drama directed by Steven Spielberg was, Jurassic World adequately brought prehistoric mayhem into the 21st century, nonetheless, to the tune of $1.6 billion globally, which was good enough for fifth on the all-time global gross chart.

SPOILERS for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom down below!

If you're seeing Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom this weekend, you might be wondering if there's an end credits scene after the movie.

More good news to soften the blow of Fallen Kingdom not living up to the original Jurassic World: it has no box office competition, leaving film fans to focus exclusively on the sequel, thus potentially boosting the amount of cash it will take home.

Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) warned everyone from the start about what could happen if push comes to shove.

Pratt reunites with Jurassic World co-star Bryce Dallas Howard as former park operations manager Clair Dearing for the daring adventure. Now with the dinosaurs free, humans must learn to co-habit with these prehistoric beasts.

So, what makes Blue tick? 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. Opening estimations hint that audiences are ready to take in an action-packed spectacle after more character-driven films like Ocean's Eight, Tag, and Hereditary.

So the TL;DR here is that Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will probably fall far short of its predecessor at the box office on opening weekend, but given the circumstances, it'll still perform pretty swimmingly.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is in theaters now.
