The Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom dinosaurs are ruling the box office for the second weekend in a row, the AP reports. Studios on Sunday estimate that the blockbuster sequel earned $60 million in its second weekend in North American theaters, bringing its domestic total to $264.8 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed $932.4 million to date. It's barreling toward the $1 billion mark.

But the dinosaurs didn't gobble up all the attention this weekend. Incredibles 2 placed second with $45.5 million. And North American audiences came out in larger than expected numbers for both Sicario: Day of the Soldado ($19 million) and Uncle Drew ($15.5 million), Variety reports. Ocean's 8 rounded out the top five with another $8 million, bringing its domestic haul to $114 million. (More box office stories.)
