‘Inside Out 2’ Delivers Historic $155M U.S. Opening

Inside Out 2

Inside Out 2 opened to a $155 million domestically over Father’s Day weekend — easily beating an expected $90 million — to secure the second-biggest animated launch of all time for a three-day weekend. It also did historic business overseas, where it opened to a record $140 million for a global total of $295 million, the biggest opening of all time for an animated film in like-for-like markets when accounting for exchange rates.

The movie was a much needed shot in the arm for the box office, which has struggled over the past few months. It is also a major win for Pixar, which has endured several years of strife, including when the former Disney regime decided to send a trio of Pixar films straight to streaming. Pixart seemed to have lost its Midas touch with a series of disappointing movies.

The top 12 films of the weekend, as of Sunday, June 16, are as follows:
