For the fourth weekend in a row, Universal's box office juggernaut Jurassic World has taken the top spot at the box office with an estimated $30.9 million. Jurassic World has currently taken in $558.1 million domestically and $826.9 million internationally for a global take of $1.3 billion after just four weeks in theaters. The movie is currently the fourth highest-grossing movie of all time domestically, behind Marvel's The Avengers' $623.3 million, and fifth highest-grossing movie globally, behind Furious 7's $1.5 billion take.
Inside Out finished in second place for the third weekend in a row, taking in $30.1 million. The Pixar movie has taken in $246.1 million domestically and $363.4 million worldwide in its three weeks in release. Coming in third place is the new release Terminator Genisys, which took in $28.7 million over the three-day weekend, and $44.7 million since its release on Wednesday, July 1. The movie suffered from a rash of negative movie reviews, amassing just a 27% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and Terminator Genisys actually opened lower than Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator Salvation.
Despite a positive reception (63% on Rotten Tomatoes), the weekend's other new movie in wide release, Magic Mike XXL, faltered, opening in fourth place with just $11.6 million over the three-day weekend and $26.6 million since its July 1 opening. The sequel took in just $3,458 per-screen average, and it opened far lower than Magic Mike's $39.1 million opening back in 2012. Ted 2 dropped to fifth place in its second weekend with $11 million, down a whopping 67.2% from its $33 million opening weekend. The comedy sequel has taken in $58.3 million so far, nearly half of the original Ted's $119.8 million take after its first two weeks in release.
The top 10 was rounded out by Max ($6.6 million), Spy $5.5 million, San Andreas ($3 million), Me and Earl and the Dying Girl ($1.3 million) and Dope $1 million. On the limited release front, A24's documentary Amy, which chronicles the life of late singer Amy Winehouse, debuted with an impressive $220,000 from just 6 theaters, for a whopping $37,000 per-screen average. Amy will expand in more theaters nationwide next weekend.Other films opening this weekend in limited release were Jimmy's Hall ($22,000, $7,333 per-screen average) and Cartel Land ($17,000, $8,500 per-screen average).
Next weekend will bring three new movies opening in wide release, Universal's Minions, Warner Bros.' horror-thriller The Gallows and Focus Features' Self/less. Four other movies are opening in limited release as well, IFC's documentary Do I Sound Gay?, Magnolia's documentary Nowitzki: The Perfect Shot, Freestyle Releasing's drama The Suicide Theory and Magnolia's dramatic comedy Tangerine. Minions most likely will overtake Jurassic World next weekend, with some projections putting the animated spinoff between $80 million and $90 million for its opening weekend, while Jurassic World will likely drop somewhere between 40 and 50 percent in its fifth weekend.
