‘Inside Out 2’ Soars To Record $100M Second Weekend

Inside Out 2

Pixar’s Inside Out 2 is on fire at the global box office, where it grossed a record-shattering $100 million domestically and $164.4 million overseas in its second weekend to finish Sunday with $724.4 million in ticket sales to become the top-grossing film of the year after racing past Dune: Part Two ($711. million). 

The animated tentpole — about the emotions inhabiting a 13-year-old girl — is among an elite group of films that have earned $90 million or more in their second weekend of play at the domestic box office. Inside Out 2 enjoyed the biggest sophomore outing of any animated film domestically and the seventh-biggest of any film behind such behemoths as installments in the AvengersStar Wars and Jurassic World series. It even earned more than Barbie, which grossed $93 million in its second outing.

The top 12 movies of the weekend, as of Sunday June 23, are as follows:
