Will Universal’s ‘Jurassic World’ Chomp Warner Bros, Disney Market Share Lead?

Some would argue that studios started the summer movie season when Universal Pictures launched Furious 7 in early April. Now the calendar tells us we’re days away from the official start of summer. That is the time when studios roll out one huge-budget summer movie after another, and this blockbuster season has created an intriguing three-horse race that likely will change by the weekend.

The 2015 Domestic Market Share standings really only put bragging rights at stake because so much money is made overseas. Still, Deadline will track the standings each Monday. So far, Warner Bros is winning, mainly because it has flooded the market with 18 titles for a total of $947.3 million. Right behind is Disney, with $876 million spread over 10 titles.

Universal, killing it this year with Furious 7, Fifty Shades Of Grey and Pitch Perfect 2, is only in third place with $828.5 million, spread over nine films. Its 1oth entry, this weekend’s Jurassic World, might well change that. Will Warner Bros and Disney have even more reason to regret the recent non-performance of Entourage and Tomorrowland? We’ll let you know Monday.
