Paramount, Universal, WB

UPDATE, writethru: A wild weekend was had at the global and international box office with major milestones for Paramount/Skydance’s Top Gun: Maverick and Universal/Amblin’s Jurassic World Dominion, as well as a $50.5M worldwide result from Warner Bros’ newcomer, Elvis.

As reported earlier, TGM crossed $1B globally in just 31 days, marking only the second time a movie has hit such heights during the pandemic; and setting by far Tom Cruise’s highest-grossing move ever.

Meanwhile Universal/Amblin’s third Jurassic pic is doing dino-mite business with a $43M international box office weekend propelling it to $747M global. JWD crossing $700M makes it only the 7th film to do so during the pandemic. The offshore total through Sunday is estimated at $443.8M. And that’s with a drop of just 45%. Will it cross $1B? Signs point to yes.


‘Elvis’ Shakes No. 1 Away From ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ After Dead Heat With $31M+ – Monday AM Box Office Update

In new entries, Warner Bros’ Elvis is off to a rocking start with $20M from 50 overseas markets for a $50.5M global debut.

Universal Pictures

Universal/Illumination’s Minions: The Rise Of Gru also began its international rollout, in Australia only, this weekend with $3.7M to land ahead of Despicable Me 2 and very close to DM3 and Minions as well as above of last week’s opening of Lightyear.

There’s a lot to unpack here — and isn’t it nice to have such an embarrassment of riches.
