After a disastrous second weekend at the box office, The Good Dinosaur will have to work hard during the holiday season to avoid becoming the lowest-grossing Pixar film ever released in the United States, a mark currently held by A Bug’s Life. Adjusted for inflation, Good Dinosaur is all but guaranteed to be the lowest-grossing Pixar film ever released.

Good Dinosaur is estimated to have grossed $15.5 million in its second weekend, which is a 60.4% drop from its first weekend, the largest plummet ever for a Pixar movie. The previous largest drop was 60.3% for Cars 2, however due to that film’s higher opening, it still managed to gross $26.3M in its second weekend. After two weeks Good Dino has earned $76M versus Cars 2′s $117.2M.

The upside for Good Dinosaur is that the film has not suffered the same steep declines in foreign markets. The film was off about 25% in France and Germany, and under 20% in Latin American markets. Its overseas weekend take was $34.9M, lifting its international total to $55.4.

Blue Sky’s The Peanuts Movie slipped from 5th to 7th in its 5th U.S. weekend, adding $3.5M to its domestic total, which is now $121.4M. The film still hasn’t opened wide internationally, where it has grossed an additional $13.2 to date.
