Jurassic World has continued to dominate the box office, with Pixar’s Inside Out close behind and Ted 2 failing to live up to expectations. Colin Trevorrow’s epic dinosaur movie took in $54.2 miilion its third weekend in theaters, narrowly beating Inside Out, which made $52.1 million. Inside Out continues to be a critical success as well, receiving a plethora of positive reviews and a Rotten Tomatoes score of 98%. Ted 2 lagged far behind, making a mediocre $32.9 million, about $15 million less than predicted. Ted, Seth Mcfarlane’s comedy about a crude teddy bear, surprised everyone in 2012 when it monopolized the box office with a $54.4 million opening weekend. This is the third weekend in a row Jurassic World has held the number one spot in the box office. It is the fifth film to ever make more than $500 million in North America alone, and the fastest to do so. Other records it has broken include being the fastest film to ever make one billion dollars globally, doing so in just thirteen days. After this weekend, Jurassic World has amassed a total of $1.238 billion, making it the eighth highest grossing film of all time. Inside Out’s North American total is now $184.9 million. The other new release this weekend was the warmhearted movie Max, which has done marginally better than anticipated, making a cool $12.2 million and taking the fourth spot at the box office.
