Jurassic World and Inside Out Battle for First

jurassic_worldThough there’s still some arguments and it’s not 100% settled, it looks like Jurassic World has retained first place at the box-office for the fourth weekend in a row. The film earned an estimated $30.9 million. Close behind is Inside Out, which is in second after three weeks in theaters. That film earned an estimated $30.1 million. It does look like Inside Out won the five day Fourth of July frame with $45.3 million compared to Jurassic World‘s $43.8 million.

Jurassic World also added $42 million overseas to bring it’s international total to $826.9 million, which when adding its domestic total (which crossed the $550 million mark) brings its grand total to $1.385 billion so far. That puts it in fifth place as far as highest grossing films ever, and has it passing Avengers: Age of Ultron which sits at $1.37 billion. That film just opened in Japan where it earned $6.5 million.

In movie openings Terminator Genisys was an apocalypse for that film franchise earning an estimated $28.7 million for three days and $44.1 million for five days. In 2009 Terminator Salvation earned $42.6 million in three days and Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines made $44 million. So, this film’s opening isn’t that great domestically. It did do decent overseas where it earned $74 million to bring its international total to $85 million, and it opened in first in a few countries. There are two more Terminator films slated to be released in 2016 and 2017, so it’ll be interesting to see if this film’s opening impacts that.

Magic Mike XXL opened with $12.04 million over three days, and $27.07 million over five, not all in ones. The film had a 96% female audience, and a budget of just $14.9 million.
