Jurassic World Dominion

Lightyear

The latest Pixar movie gets its debut in cinemas instead of the Disney+ streaming service which the last couple of movie have, and despite the mixed critical reviews the movie makes its debut at number 2 this weekend.

Taking $51 Million it is higher than the debut of the last Pixar movie to hit cinemas Onward, but that movie released in March 2020 when the country was on the verge of a national lockdown which effected its debut.

The movie has a tough road ahead considering the critical response and we could see this hit Disney+ sooner rather than later.
