“Inside Out” Overperforms, But “Jurassic World” Remains #1 at Box Office

Inside Out [Disney Pixar - Official]

The critically acclaimed “Inside Out” got off to a strong start at the weekend box office, but it could not seize the throne from reigning champion “Jurassic World.”

That film retains the #1 position on the strength of its $102.0 million in receipts. The tally is the second-best second weekend mark on record. Only “The Avengers,” which earned $103.1 million in week two, had a better follow-up weekend.

With two weekends in the books, “Jurassic World” has earned $398.2 million. By the time Monday closes, its cumulative gross should top the $402.5 million earned by “Jurassic Park.” When that happens, “Jurassic World” will become the highest-grossing “Jurassic Park” film ever.

While it settled for #2, the aforementioned “Inside Out” was no slouch. Its $91.1 million weekend is the second-greatest for a Pixar film (after “Toy Story 3”), the greatest for a weekend’s #2 film and the greatest for a completely original offering (a film that is not a sequel, remake or adaptation).

“Spy” ($10.5 million, #3), “San Andreas” ($8.2 million, #4) and “Dope” ($6.0 million, #5) complete the weekend’s top five.
