For the second weekend in a row, Inside Out fell a couple million short of Jurassic World’s CGI dinosaurs for the first-place spot, but the film continues to perform phenomenally well. Pixar’s cerebral animated feature posted a small week-to-week decline, dropping 42.1% to $52.3 million. It’s the best second-frame hold for a Pixar film since 2009, when another Pete Docter-directed film, Up, dropped just 35.2%.
What may be worth noting is that Inside Out very likely drew a larger moviegoing audience over the weekend than its dino competitor, which ended with $54.5M. However, thanks to a lacking 3D presentation, the Pixar film’s 3D gross comprised just 25% of its box office. Meanwhile, Jurassic World is doing significantly bigger business in 3D, with over 40% of its gross coming from the glasses, while also benefiting from higher ticket prices at its 365 Imax hubs.
