Deadline reports that Universal’s Jurassic World, opening June 12, is tracking for a domestic opening weekend of between $100-130 million, roughly in line with Man of Steel’s opening gross of $116 million. Awareness for the film is presently in the 90% range, higher than San Andreas, which opens next week.
Interestingly enough, though Jurassic is one of the summer’s earlier releases, it could be one of the last films of the summer to gross more than $100 million in its first three days. Only Universal’s other big summer release, Minions, is expected is join that club. Though there are other big films in the pipeline, the Terminator and Mission: Impossible franchises have, historically, not performed to that level straight out of the gate, and Marvel’s Ant-Man isn’t expected to do traditional Marvel-sized business.
