Please note that because of the holiday weekend most of today's reported grosses are studio estimates.

After falling to third place on Wednesday, Inside Out returned to first place on Thursday with an estimated $7.72 million. The critically acclaimed 3D computer animated blockbuster from Disney and Pixar was up a slim 3 percent over Wednesday and down only 21 percent from last Thursday. Inside Out was the week's top film with a weekly take of $83.24 million. That represented a 37 percent decline from the film's opening week performance. Inside Out continues to exceed expectations in a big way with a two week total of $216.06 million. The film is currently running 10 percent ahead of the $196.54 million two-week take of 2013's Monsters University and 16.5 percent behind the $258.83 million two-week gross of 2010's Toy Story 3.

Jurassic World was up 15 percent and two spots over Wednesday to move into third with an estimated $6.9 million. The 3D blockbuster sequel from Universal and Legendary decreased 22.5 percent from last Thursday. Jurassic World placed in a close second for the week with $81.42 million. The film was down 46 percent from the previous frame and has grossed a massive $527.26 million through three weeks of release. Jurassic World is currently the fifth highest grossing film of all-time without adjusting for ticket price inflation and is now on the verge of passing the $534.86 million final gross of 2008's The Dark Knight to move into fourth place.

Paramount's Terminator Genisys fell one spot and 27 percent from its opening day performance to land in third with an estimated $6.5 million. The fifth installment of the Arnold Schwarzenegger led sci-fi action franchise has grossed $15.43 million in its first two days. That is below the film's already scaled back expectations and is soft with the film's price tag in mind. The film's two-day start is 46 percent below the $28.35 million two-day take of Terminator 3 way back in 2003 and 4 percent ahead of the $14.87 million two-day launch of 2009's Public Enemies. At its current pace, Terminator Genisys looks to be on pace for a five-day start just below $40 million.

Warner's Magic Mike XXL held up even softer yesterday as it was down three spots and a sharp 38.5 percent from Wednesday to fall to fourth with an estimated $5.73 million. Magic Mike XXL has grossed $15.03 million in two days. While the Channing Tatum led sequel is performing well with its modest cost in mind, yesterday's daily percentage hold was a troubling early sign going forward. Magic Mike XXL is running 8 percent behind the $16.29 million two-day start of 2003's Legally Blonde 2 and 28 percent ahead of the $11.73 million two-day take of last year's Tammy. Unless it is able to build up momentum today, Magic Mike XXL appears headed for a five-day start in the area of $35 million.

Ted 2 held steady in fifth place with an estimated $3.25 million. The Seth MacFarlane directed comedy sequel from Universal and MRC was up a modest 7 percent over Wednesday. Ted 2 placed in third for the week with a much softer than expected seven-day start of $47.31 million. The film is running a very disappointing 46 percent behind the $87.65 million seven-day take of 2012's Ted and will likely continue to fall further and further behind in the comparison due to its nature as a sequel.

Max rounded out its first week of release with an estimated sixth place take of $1.67 million. The modestly budgeted family film from Warner Bros. and MGM was up 11 percent over Wednesday. Max placed in fourth for the week with a seven-day gross of $18.75 million. That was in line with expectations and was 13 percent ahead of the $16.54 million seven-day start of last year's Earth to Echo (which opened on a Wednesday).
