Welcome back everyone to the box office weekend update,
Jurassic World continued to devour box office records this weekend bringing in an incredible $102 million in its second weekend! Jurassic World is now only the second film ever to make over a hundred million in its second weekend of release, the first film to do so was Marvel's original The Avengers. The film has now brought in almost $400 million domestically and around $981 million worldwide!
The film has destroyed box office expectations for the year, with it now looking to become the fastest film to cross the $1 billion mark worldwide by this time tomorrow afternoon!
Now many are asking how big can this film become? It is already well on its way to becoming the highest grossing film of the year, and the only thing standing in its way is a little film called Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Unless there is another big surprise in the box office numbers this year it looks as though Jurassic World will claim at the very least, the 2nd highest grossing film of the year. Many Analyst are predicting Star Wars: The Force Awakens to be the biggest film of the year and perhaps the biggest film of all time, I myself being one of those people! We will just have to wait and see how all these predictions & impressive numbers shake out at the end of the year.
Debuting in second place this weekend with a performance not to be underestimated was Disney Pixar's new animated family film Inside Out bringing in a whopping $91 million! The highly acclaimed family film scored the second highest opening weekend of all time for a Pixar film behind only the $110 debut of Toy Story 3 back in 2010.
Coming in a distant third place this weekend was Fox's Spy hauling in another $10.5 million. The film has now brought in $74.4 million domestically, which isn't bad considering the competition over the past few weeks.
Warner Brothers' disaster film San Andreas came in fourth place with around $8 million. The Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson starring film has now earned an impressive $132 million domestically in just 24 days.
Rounding out the top five this weekend was the critically praised Sundance film Dope debuting in fifth place with a lower than expected $6 million.
Well that is it for the box office weekend update!
