NEW YORK (AP) — Three weeks after opening, Pixar’s “Inside Out” has finally slayed the dinosaurs of “Jurassic World.”
In final box office figures released Monday, “Inside Out” came out slightly ahead of “Jurassic World” after estimates Sunday had “Jurassic World” narrowly edging “Inside Out” for the top spot.
The acclaimed Pixar original took in $29.8 million over the July 4 weekend for Disney, enough to barely surpass the hit Universal reboot “Jurassic World,” which pulled in $29.2 million on its fourth weekend.
While those two releases continued to dominate the multiplexes, two new releases struggled to find moviegoers over the summer holiday.
Paramount’s “Terminator Genisys,” which cost $155 million to produce, fared worse than the previous four installments of the franchise. It made $27 million over the weekend and $42.5 million since it opened Wednesday.
“Magic Mike XXL,” Warner Bros.’ sequel to the 2012 Channing Tatum hit, was made for just $15 million. But it also didn’t draw as expected, earning $27.9 million over five days of release.
