‘Jurassic World’ Edges ‘Inside Out’ in its Second Weekend

There are two big stories which came out of this weekend’s box office report. First, is Jurassic World retaining the number one spot after a monster opening weekend last week. The film made an estimated $102 million domestically taking its total through two weekends up to $398.2 million. Worldwide the film is currently at $981.3 million, and is expected to reach the $1 billion mark under the current record at 17 days set by Furious 7.

The second big story comes from Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out, which shattered expectations by taking in $91 million. The latest film from Pixar comes second only to Toy Story 3 ($110 mill) for the studio’s highest grossing weekend. Furthermore, Collider.com says Inside Out is the highest grossing original film (not based on pre-existing material) not only in Pixar’s history, but in box office history.

Regardless of Inside Out being the first film in Pixar to not open at the #1 spot, it achieved its own success and proved that Pixar is back and can deliver more original stories. Universal Pictures continues its dominance w/ Jurassic World set to become the second billion dollar grossing film for the studio. And with just Ted 2 being the only big film releasing next weekend, I expect Jurassic World to continue making impressive dollars at the box office.
