The dinos have pulled off a neat magic trick.
Jurassic World Dominion continues to roar at the box office, and this weekend, the blockbuster passed another genre entry–Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness–to become the second biggest Hollywood release of the year worldwide, according to a report on Deadline.
The latest in the Jurassic Park/World franchise now has a total worldwide box office haul of $960 million–including nearly $590 million overseas–which places it second only to the high-flying Tom Cruise-led juggernaut Top Gun: Maverick for the year to date.
Dominion–now available on-demand for home viewing–is directed by Colin Trevorrow from a screenplay he wrote with Emily Carmichael. The film–starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, along with Jurassic Park legacy legends Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum–is set four years after Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, when dinosaurs mingle with humans around the globe.
The Doctor Strange sequel, after this weekend, has raked in a tidy $955 million globally, which includes $544 million from overseas markets.
The supernatural thriller–directed by Sam Raimi (of Evil Dead fame) and written by Michael Waldron (Loki)–stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Strange, Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff and Xochitl Gomez as America Chavez. In the film, Strange tries to protect Chavez–a teenager capable of traveling through the Multiverse–from Maximoff.
