Weekend Box-Office: LIGHTYEAR Debut Crushed by JURASSIC WORLD DOMINION

Weekend Box Office Lightyear Jurassic World Dominion

The Pixar/Disney movie "Lightyear" attempted to take the crown from the dinosaur thriller "Jurassic World Dominion", but got stomped on, falling way short of expectations. Meanwhile "Top Gun: Maverick" is still flying strong.

Read more about the weekend box-office after the jump.

"Jurassic World Dominion" is still the reigning king at the box-office with $58.6 million over the weekend. The sequel dropped 59.6% from its opening weekend, which ranked as the 29th biggest opening weekend of all time. The sophonmore frame drop is steeper than "Jurassic World" (-49%) and on par with "Fallen Kingdom" (-59%). The sci-fi thriller's domestic tally has reached $249.7 million after 9 days, while overseas it raked in $372.3 million (China leads with $92.8 million). The worldwide total now sits at $622.1 million.

The animated "Toy Story" spinoff "Lightyear" opened in second place with $51 million from 4,255 theaters. That's considerably less than the pre-release projections that ranged between $75-105 million. The disappointing opening weekend is almost the worst Pixar debut ever, but managed to beat out four of the studio's titles: "Coco" ($50M), "Ratatouille" ($47M), "The Good Dinosaur" ($39.1M), and "Onward" ($39.1M).

"Lightyear" also came in below projections overseas, where it grossed $34.6 million from 43 countries. Overall, the film raked in $85.6 million worldwide. The critical reception was mostly positive (77% on Rotten Tomatoes), and audiences generally enjoyed it ("A-" CinemaScore).

"Top Gun: Maverick" finished in third place with a very impressive $44 million, dropping just 15.1% from the previous weekend. Domestically, the film has grossed $466.1 million, becoming the highest grossing film of 2022. And with another $419 million grossed overseas, the film has delivered a total of $885.1 million worldwide after just 21 days.

In fourth place we find "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" with $4.2 million, dropping just 19.5%. The film has so far grossed $405 million domestically and another $537.4 million. At this rate, with $942.4 million worldwide, the film might not reach the $1 billion mark.

The animated film "The Bob's Burgers Movie" rounds out the Top 5 with $1.1 million. The film's domestic total has reached $29.7 million.
