'Inside Out' finally beat 'Jurassic World' at the box office

Posted on

Disney/Pixar

Box office numbers for the holiday weekend are trickling in, and Jurassic World has finally fallen to second place. It wasn’t some new, action-packed blockbuster that killed the dinosaurs, but rather the kid-friendly (and critically adored) Inside Out, which claimed the box office crown.

Early Sunday estimates had Jurassic World taking the top spot for its fourth straight weekend, earning $30.9 million to Inside Out‘s $30.1 million, but Inside Out ended up pulling ahead with $29.7 million over Jurassic World‘s $29.2 million. And for the five-day holiday period, beginning Wednesday, Jurassic World actually fell to third with $42.1 million. Inside Out won the five-day period too with $45.1 million, and newcomer Terminator Genisys barely edged out Jurassic World to take second with $42.5 million.

Still, even though Jurassic World‘s No. 1 streak ended after three weeks, it’s not like it has any shortage of box office records. After this weekend, the dinosaur sequel has made $556.5 million in North America, giving it the the fourth-biggest domestic total of all time.
