'Inside Out' Finally Beats 'Jurassic World' at Weekend Box Office
"Jurassic World" has finally ceded its crown as the reigning weekend box office champ.
According to new estimates that rolled in on Monday, "Jurassic" took second place at the domestic box office, placing just a hair behind Pixar hit "Inside Out." "Inside Out" claimed victory with a haul of $29.8 million over the Fourth of July weekend, while "Jurassic World" took in $29.2 million in its fourth week of release.
While "Jurassic" still remains king at the international box office (it's already claimed the fifth-largest total on the all-time worldwide list with $1.385 billion in earnings), this change in the charts is a nice win for "Inside Out," which was no slouch itself in its first few weeks in release, bowing to stellar reviews and a jaw-dropping $91 million for the second-biggest opening weekend ever for a Pixar flick. So far, "Inside Out" has claimed $245.9 million at the domestic box office.
As Moviefone previously reported, those large sums meant trouble for new releases "Magic Mike XXL" and "Terminator: Genisys," though overall, the box office is doing just fine for itself compared to this time last year. And with sure-to-be-hits "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 2" and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" due out later this year, the movie business may see even more broken records before 2015 is over.
