MANILA -- Universal Pictures' "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" opened at No. 1 in the Philippines with P213.8-million gross in five days (June 6-10).

The J.A. Bayona-helmed sequel to the 2015 franchise reboot registered Universal Pictures' second biggest opening weekend of all time, behind its predecessor, "Jurassic World," which was released over a three-day Independence Day weekend. 

The film’s opening day gross of P38-million also broke the record for the biggest non-holiday opening day for a Universal title; and the biggest opening day for Jurassic Park/World franchise.

The Chris Pratt-starrer is predicted to continue enjoying robust box-office receipts as more fans are expected to troop to the cinemas due to the holidays.

Internationally, "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" bowed in 48 foreign markets and is looking at an estimated full weekend opening of $151.1 million worldwide.

Currently, "Fallen Kingdom" has scored the fifth-biggest international opening weekend of 2018.
