Fallen Kingdom scares up $15.3 million in Thursday previews

Jeff Goldblum, who played Dr. Ian Malcolm, in the original franchise reprises his role briefly in the new movie "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom".

Sam Neill, Ariana Richards and Joseph Mazzello in "Jurassic Park" (1993).

Fallen Kingdom is earning dino-sized disagreements among critics, and is now batting an even 50% on Rotten Tomatoes, there is one moment that seems to be resonating with audiences.

Hernandez nets as Mexico see off South Korea
Mexico have taken a huge step towards the last-16 stage of the 2018 World Cup courtesy of a 2-1 win over South Korea in Rostov. Son Heung-Min gave South Korea fleeting hopes of earning a point with a sublime, curling strike from 25 yards.

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.

"Fallen Kingdom", which carries a production budget of $170 million, began rolling out overseas two weeks ago, and has already earned $466 million from 51 global markets, including $170 million from China. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom took in an impressive $15.3 million from Thursday sneak peeks, just below the $18.5 million that Jurassic World earned in 2015, en route to a then-record opening weekend of $208.8 million.

In theaters right now, the fifth installment of the Jurassic Park is playing at a local multiplex somewhere near you right now. Then again, with the World Cup in full swing, which is far more popular in other parts of the world than in the USA, it's possible the sequel could suffer in China because of World Cup fever, and the impending summer "blackout" of Hollywood films that happens every year at the end of June. Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard), now a pro-dino activist, enlists the help of Owen (Chris Pratt) to travel back to Isla Nubar in hopes of rescuing Blue, the hyper-intelligent raptor.
