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