Jurassic World Box Office Tops the Food Chain

Jurassic World Box Office Tops the Food Chain

The dinosaur thriller beats Inside Out, again.

Published June 29, 2015

Dinosaurs once again ruled the earth — or, at least, the box office — this weekend, with Jurassic World coming out on top in its third weekend on screens. The film, starring Chris Pratt, scored an additional $54.2 million, setting a box office record for shortest time to cross the $500 million mark (17 days, in case you're counting).

The film narrowly beat out Disney/Pixar's acclaimed family film Inside Out, which earned $52.1 million in its second weekend, bringing its total to $184.9 million.

Seth MacFarlane's raunchy R-rated comedy Ted 2, starring Mark Wahlberg and a stuffed bear, suffered from competing with the two tentpoles coming in third place with $32.9 million. That's about $20 million less than the original film pulled in when it came out. Couldn't have helped that Ted 2 was massacred by the critics.

In fourth place was Max, the story of a Marine dog moving back to the USA after seeing war in Afghanistan, with $12.2 million. Melissa McCarthy's Spy rounded out the top five in its fourth weekend with $7.8 million, giving it nearly $90 million in box office total.

This week, Magic Mike XXL and Terminator: Genisys will aim for those holiday weekend dollars, but can either take a bite out of Jurassic Park?
