Jurassic World Still Rains Cash, While Inside Out Debuts Strong
Jurassic World retained the top spot at the domestic earning an estimated $102 million. That’s only a 51% decline from its first weekend, which is much less than expected. That’s the second best second weekend earnings ever. The film has earned $398.2 million at the domestic box office. Internationally the film has brought in $583.1 million bringing its total worldwide to $981.3 million. World will cross the billion mark soon, making it the quickest a movie has gotten to that mark. The current record holder Furious 7 took 17 days and World will do it in 11 or 12. The film still hasn’t opened in Japan.
Not to be outdone though, Inside Out debuted with an impressive $91.1 million. That’s actually the best debut ever for an original property. The film earned $41 million internationally giving it a total of $132 million for its first weekend. It’s only opened in 42% of the global markets. The film’s domestic opening is the second best ever opening weekend for a Pixar film.
In more comic related film earnings, Avengers: Age of Ultron continued to bring in the dollars adding an estimated $2.7 million at the domestic box office. The film has earned $1.37 billion so far.
When it comes to the 2015 top grosses, Age of Ultron still is on top as far as domestic earnings. Jurassic World will likely pass it. Worldwide, Furious 7 is still on top with Age of Ultron in second and Jurassic World has quite a bit to go, but is currently in third.
