Weekend Box Office Report: June 26-28, 2015

06.28.2015

Jurassic World is still getting visitors!

For the third weekend in a row, dinosaurs remained the biggest attraction at the box office to keep JURASSIC WORLD on top with an estimated $54.2 million!

The movie has also reached a $500 million domestic total after just 17 days in theaters, smashing another new record as it becomes the highest-grossing release of 2015.

In addition, JURASSIC WORLD is up to a $1.23 billion worldwide total, supplanting IRON MAN 3 to take the #8 spot on the all-time global grossers list. (The original JURASSIC PARK made $1.02 billion -- in 1993 dollars.)

But right behind it was Pixar's INSIDE OUT with $52.1 million, down just 42% from its opening last weekend. The colorful emotions have collected a 10-day domestic total of $184.9 million, putting it on track to become one of the animation studio's biggest successes.

Opening in third place was Seth MacFarlane's R-rated comedy TED 2 with $33 million. The continuing adventures of Mark Wahlberg and his foul-mouthed bear couldn't approach the first movie's surprising $54.4 million debut in 2012 (TED went on to $218 million domestic and a remarkable $549 million worldwide).

Still, the $68 million sequel is off to a much better start than MacFarlane's A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST, which opened with $16.7 million last May. Critics were less than halfway amused by TED 2 (47% on Rotten Tomatoes) and moviegoers gave it a 'B+' CinemaScore.

Opening in fourth place was the new dog drama MAX with $12.2 million. Critics weren't particularly moved by the canine war veteran (38% on Rotten Tomatoes) but audiences gave it an 'A' CinemaScore.

Things take a sharp drop on the list after that, with SPY in fifth place with $7.8 million. Melissa McCarthy's R-rated comedy stands a good chance of making it past the $100 million mark domestically before it finishes. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's quaker SAN ANDREAS was in sixth with $5.2 million as it rumbled to a worldwide total of $439 million.

The comedy-drama DOPE was in seventh with $2.8 million, slipping 53% from its opening last week. After that was INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 and MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, with AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON hanging onto the bottom after nine weekends in theaters.

Outside the chart, PITCH PERFECT 2 took off with $180 million total, along with Disney's TOMORROWLAND (with half that amount). The Beach Boys biopic LOVE & MERCY has gathered $9.2 million so far, and the teen drama ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL expanded to 354 screens and came up just short of $1 million for the weekend.

Next weekend lets you celebrate Independence Day with the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger's cyborg in TERMINATOR: GENISYS, or you can spend time writhing with Channing Tatum and company in MAGIC MIKE XXL. Both movies open on Wednesday.

Well the original Jurassic Park would be bringing these same numbers if it were released today anyway, but I couldn't be more happy with the success of Jurassic Park, really great movie.

"The original JURASSIC PARK made $1.02 billion -- in 1993 dollars."

Incorrect. It made under a billion dollars and the 3D re-release pushed it over.

I wonder if Terminator Genisys can kick Jurassic World out of number 1 spot. It'll certainly open big but I'm confident Jurassic World will stay at number 1 spot for another week.

Terminator will make more than $25m. That's what Jurassic makes if it holds at around a 50% drop.

Terminator opens on wednesday, it will probably make more money the first two days than in the weekend (you know, lot of fans...) so maybe it don't make more than 25-30 during the weekend, and it's possible that JW make another 25-30 in the same period. It's also a posibility that Inside out take the 1st place. Or Magic Mike... or maybe Terminator is a surprise and make a lot of cash (I don't think so). One thing is sure it will be another big weekend in terms of box office numbers!

I'm sure the opening numbers for Terminator will be big. As for the number one spot, it'll be a close race between Terminator and Jurassic World.

Great for Jurassic World. One of the best prime definitions of how a summer blockbuster should be.

With Dbox and 4D in LA all carrying a premium price of 20-27 dollars. Could this be helping JWorlds box office?

Yes. A pillow the size of an elephant, and stuffed with hundred dollar bills.

Finally saw Jurassic World last night.

Must say I really enjoyed it. Proper summer popcorn movie.
Have two free cinerma tickets to use before the end of August and am struggling to pick what to see with a mate. Most likely choice is Ant-Man but if reviews of Terminator are good that could sway us!
