Apologies for the late post – you know me, I like to get these up on Sundays, but yesterday was not only Father’s Day, but it was my daughter’s fifth birthday as well. As you can imagine, there was cake to be eaten, parties to be had and movies to see. In our case, it was the film that came in second at the box office. Here’s what went down:
Holding on to the top spot at the box office this weekend was Jurassic World, which brought in $102 million, an absolutely stellar number. The film has now grossed $399 million, and is well on its way to be being the biggest film of the summer, likely by far.
Debuting in second place with $91 million is the Disney-Pixar film Inside Out. Riding a wave of great reviews and the Pixar brand name, Inside Out was clearly the choice of families with little kids this weekend. The film is very sophisticated and plays well with adults, as I can attest to having seen it on Sunday. My little one loved it as well, even if I’m still trying to explain to her how one loses their train of thought. Highly recommended, though.
As for the rest of the top five, Spy was in third place with $10.5 million, San Andreas hit fourth with $8.2 million, while Dope closed things out in fifth place with a $5.8 million debut.
So, to recap, here were our predictions:
1) Jurassic World – $110 million
2) Inside Out – $90 million
3) Spy – $9 million
4) Dope – $7 million
5) San Andreas – $5 million
And here’s how the weekend turned out:
1) Jurassic World – $102 million
2) Inside Out – $91 million
3) Spy – $10.5 million
4) San Andreas– $8.2 million
5) Dope – $5.8 million
Out this weekend are Max and Ted 2. Be sure to check back on Friday to see our predictions!
