WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom dominates the chart with an estimated 150MM (the math of that estimate suggests to me it might come in a few million lower, while getting the big headline). There's no new big competition until Ant-Man and the Wasp shows up after 7/4, but this debut is far below the 208MM of the 2015 reboot.  Incredibles 2 places with 81MM on a 56 percent drop that's not unheard of for Pixar sequels, but probably mildly disappointing -- but only mildly, given the dino-competition and the likelihood that this will be Pixar's second-biggest grosser, perhaps its biggest.  Ocean's 8 shows with 11.7MM on a 39 percent drop, crossing the 100MM mark en route to becoming the second-biggest of this franchise.  Tag slid 45 percent to the fourth slot with 8.2MM, but at least recouped its 28MM production budget and could even make a little money in theaters.  Deadpool 2 rounds out the Top Five with 5.3MM, breaking the 300MM mark domestically. Below the fold, Solo is... below the fold, though itfinally crossesthe 200MM mark.

TOM HOLLAND now seems to be intentionally "spoiling" the Spider-Man sequel's title.
