Weekend Box Office: JURASSIC WORLD Still Ranks #1

June 26 - 28 2015

Universal’s Jurassic World topped the box office for the third week in a row. The Chris Pratt/Bryce Dallas Howard-starring dino-sequel is in a close race for first with Pixar’s Inside Out, which brought in $52.1 million for the weekend, down just 43% from its opening weekend.

The Jurassic Park sequel added $54.2 million to its total, bringing its domestic cume to $500 million in just 17 days, becoming only the fifth film to earn $500 million or more domestically.

Meanwhile, Seth MacFarlane’s Ted 2 far underwhelmed expectations, as the R-rated sequel to 2012’s Ted debuted to only $33 million, snagging third place. The original Ted opened with $54 million with a $51 million budget, while the live action/CG-animated sequel is carrying a reported $68 million budget.

The only other major new release of the weekend was the canine friendly Max, which debuted to an estimated $12.2 million to place No. 4. The Warner Bros. family release did slightly better than expected, which is especially impressive considering the competition it faced from Inside Out. The movie got an A CinemaScore.

Melissa McCarthy’s Spy finished at #5 with 7.8 million in its fourth weekend. Here are this weekend’s top ten at the box office:

Terminator Genisys is ready to hit theaters with its release next week. You might want to get to the theater a little early to play the first ever in-theater interactive game on your phone before the movie starts. That’s so much better than sitting through ten previews.
