1. Jurassic World – $102 million [2nd week; $398.2 million] The summer’s mammoth hit battered the box office for a second week, but it had some strong competition as the summer season heats up. The fourth installment of the series now is the franchise’s highest grosser as it passed the original’s $357.1 million.
The dinos may have come up shy of ‘Marvel’s The Avengers’ record second best weekend, which for now stands at No. 1 with $103 million. That could be adjusted once tomorrow’s figures come out.
2. Inside Out – $91 million [debut week] Pixar’s latest had the studio’s second best opening, but it just came up short of continuing Pixar’s streak of every one of its films debuting at Number 1.Thanks to excellent critical and audience reception, ‘Inside Out’s’ debut trails only the $110.3 million of ‘Toy Story 3‘ for best Pixar opening. Word of mouth is going to remain strong for this one, so don’t be too shocked if this ends up beating ‘Jurassic World’ next weekend.
