JURASSIC WORLD Moves to No. 4 All Time; TERMINATOR GENISYS and MAGIC MIKE XXL Fail to Live Up to Their Originals
Inside Out was a close second with $30.1 million. Pixar's latest still hasn't captured the top spot versus Jurassic World, but the movie moves up to No. 7 on the all-time Pixar box office list. By grossing $246.2 million over three weekends, Inside Out is in prime position to become just the third Pixar movie to break the $300 million barrier. The only two movies made by the studio to cross that mark so far have been Toy Story 3 ($415 million) and Finding Nemo ($339.7 million).
The weekend's new releases didn't fare so well when compared to their predecessors. Terminator Genisys premiered with hopes it could launch a new trilogy and a new start for the franchise. The movie opened to $28.7 million, which ranks as the worst opening weekend for a Terminator movie with the exception of the original's $4 million debut. The Terminator premiered in just 1,005 theaters. Despite being critically panned, the previous Terminator movie, Terminator Salvation, grossed $42.6 million in 2009.
Magic Mike XXL also failed to flex its box office muscles this weekend. While Magic Mike opened to $39.1 million, the sequel could only muster $11.6 million.
