Jurassic World Dominion takes in $143 million at the box office

The box office haul for the dinosaur franchise film is $143 million, making it the most promising weekend for the theatre industry yet.

"Jurassic World Dominion," the third instalment of the resurrected dinosaur franchise, grossed an estimated $143 million in the United States and Canada.

The trio of films marks the first time since the pandemic that three films have a chance to cross the $1 billion mark globally.

Executives in the entertainment industry say they hope that as Covid-19 cases decrease, moviegoers, concertgoers, and travellers will spend more.

"Jurassic World" drew a diverse audience, with Hispanic viewers performing particularly well.

"Top Gun: Maverick," starring its original star, Tom Cruise, remained in second place for a long time. It has made $393 million in three weeks.
