Inside Out claimed first place on Monday with $4.95 million. The critically acclaimed 3D computer animated blockbuster from Disney and Pixar has led the daily box office for six of the past eight days. Inside Out was down 45 percent from Sunday and down only 28 percent from last Monday. The film surpassed the $250 million domestic mark on Monday and has grossed a stronger than expected $250.85 million in 18 days. Compared to previous blockbusters from Pixar, Inside Out is running an impressive 15 percent ahead of the $218.81 million 18-day take of 2013's Monsters University and 17 percent behind the $301.88 million 18-day gross of 2010's Toy Story 3.

Jurassic World placed in second with $4.15 million. The 3D blockbuster sequel from Universal and Legendary decreased 53 percent from Sunday and a solid 36 percent from last Monday. Jurassic World has grossed a massive $560.69 million in 25 days and is currently the fourth highest grossing film of all-time without adjusting for ticket price inflation. The film is running $36.78 million and 7 percent ahead of the $523.91 million 25-day take of 2012's Marvel's The Avengers.

Paramount's Terminator Genisys followed in third place with $3.42 million. The pricey Arnold Schwarzenegger led 3D sci-fi action sequel was down 59.5 percent from Sunday. That easily represented the day's largest daily percentage decline among wide releases and isn't a good early sign going forward. Terminator Genisys has grossed $45.90 million in six days of release. That is below the film's already scaled back pre-release expectations and is 33.5 percent behind the $69.00 million six-day start of 2009's Terminator Salvation.

Warner's Magic Mike XXL landed in fourth with $2.34 million. The modestly budgeted Channing Tatum led sequel was down just 42.5 percent from Sunday, which represented the day's strongest daily percentage hold among wide releases. Magic Mike XXL has been much more of a weekday film so far and should continue to remain so going forward. The film surpassed the $30 million mark yesterday and has grossed a much softer than expected $30.23 million in six days. That places the film a disappointing 43 percent behind the $52.63 million six-day take of 2012's Magic Mike.

Ted 2 rounded out Monday's top five with $2.00 million. The Seth MacFarlane directed comedy sequel from Universal and MRC fell 47 percent from Sunday and 46 percent from last Monday. Ted 2 passed the $60 million mark yesterday and has grossed $60.50 million in eleven days. That is far softer than was widely expected for the film and is a very disappointing 51 percent below the $124.33 million eleven-day gross of 2012's Ted. Clearly audiences weren't all that hungry for a sequel to either Ted or Magic Mike.

Max took sixth place with $1.16 million. The modestly budgeted family film from Warner Bros. and MGM was down 43.5 percent from Sunday and down a slim 22 percent from last Monday. Max has grossed a solid $26.54 million in eleven days. The film is running in line with expectations and 15 percent ahead of the $23.05 million eleven-day take of of year's Earth to Echo.
