The dinosaurs still rule the box office. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom surpassed expectations to open with an estimated $150 million in ticket sales in US and Canada theaters over the weekend, the AP reports. While that total didn't approach the record-breaking debut of 2015's "Jurassic" reboot, it proved the franchise still roars loudly among moviegoers. It also gave Hollywood its first back-to-back $100 million-plus openings in a non-holiday period.

After opening with $182.7 million last week, Pixar's acclaimed sequel The Incredibles 2 slid 56% in its second week, with an $80.9 million haul. The female-fronted heist film Ocean's 8 also crossed $100 million domestically with $11.7 million in its third week. Rounding out the top five were Tag ($8.2 million) and Deadpool 2 ($5.2 million), Variety reports. Among specialty films, the Mister Rogers documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor picked up $1.8 million in 348 theaters.
