Although "Jurassic World," in its second weekend, claimed the number one spot from "Inside Out," Disney and Pixar's latest outing still had a very successful weekend at the box office. With $91.1 million in North American ticket sales, "Inside Out" had the largest opening weekend for a non-sequel or non-sourced movie ever, beating out James Cameron's "Avatar," which earned $77 million on its 2009 opening weekend.
Taking place entirely inside a young girl's head, "Inside Out" (starring Amy Poehler, Phyllis Smith, Bill Hader, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling) follows the girl's personified emotions as they try o help her adjust to life after her family moves from Minnesota to San Francisco. The Peter Docter directed film opened to wide critical acclaim with some even calling it one of the best movies of 2015 so far. It is Pixar's second biggest opening weekend, trailing just behind 2010's "Toy Story 3" ($110.3 million).
However, "Inside Out" also marked the first Pixar movie to not open at number 1 because of "Jurassic World," which became the second movie in history, after Marvel's "The Avengers", to gross over $100 million in two weekends. Earning an estimated $102.million domestically this past weekend, "Jurassic World" surpassed "Jurassic Park" as the highest grossing movie in the franchise. It also on track to be the fastest film to gross $1 billion worldwide, as it brought in $583.1 million overseas, which brings its worldwide total to $981.3 million.
