Jurassic World Dominion has received a CinemaScore grade from the audience.
Jurassic World Dominion, the latest blockbuster from Universal Pictures, has officially stomped into cinemas, and although negative-to-mixed reactions to the picture, box office projections indicate that this Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard-led film will once again make a big splash among the franchise’s installments.
Now that the picture has made its way into cinemas, we have its official CinemaScore rating. Even though the picture got a franchise-low rating on Rotten Tomatoes, opening night moviegoers gave the latest installment in the Jurassic World franchise an A-.
The recent box office success of Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick and Chris Pratt’s Jurassic World Dominion is the clearest testimony that moviegoers were still eager to see films that evoked their nostalgia rather than the huge event tentpole releases. When it was first shown in cinemas in 1993, the original Jurassic Park movie quickly climbed to the top of the box office to become the highest-grossing picture of all time.
It is apparent that the “legacy-quel” dominated the blockbuster landscape from the middle to the late 2010s. The nostalgia factor was clearly a component in why Jurassic World took audiences by storm in 2015. Given that fans have responded more favorably than critics to Chris Pratt’s third dinosaur adventure, it will be intriguing to what will happen at the box office in the following weeks, particularly given some fierce competition.
