'Inside Out' & 'Jurassic World' Maintain Lead Over Newcomers; 'Terminator Genisys' & 'Magic Mike XXL' Claim Third and Fourth SpotsJuly 04, 2015 03:25 AM

by BoxOffice Staff

Disney reports that Inside Out held onto first place Friday with an estimated gross of $12.51 million. That brings the hugely successful animated pic's domestic tally up to $228.56 million through 15 days of release, 38 percent ahead of the pace of Up and 15 percent behind Toy Story 3. BoxOffice is projecting the film will finish out the holiday weekend in the top spot with a projected $30 million third frame.

Universal's Jurassic World also stayed put in second place yesterday, tacking on another $11.8 million and bringing its overall domestic tally up to a staggering $539.04 million in just 22 days. That puts it 11 percent ahead of where Marvel's The Avengers' stood at the same point in release, while also moving World ahead of The Dark Knight ($534.9 million) for fourth place on the all-time chart. Universal's official projection for this weekend is $28.9 million.

Paramount's Terminator Genisys grossed $10.8 million in third place yesterday, giving it a disappointing three-day start of $26.255 million. By comparison, that's 38.5 percent behind the pace of the franchise's previous installment, 2009's Terminator Salvation. Although the reboot/sequel posted a 65.5 percent increase from Thursday, word of mouth and reviews are working against the pic in the long game. BoxOffice is projecting a $26.5 million three-day weekend, giving it an overall five-day launch of $41.955 million.

Magic Mike XXL held steady in fourth place with $6.3 million on Friday, giving it a three-day start of $21.33 million since opening on Wednesday. The sequel is performing below expectations and is proving to have been even more front-loaded than expected, although it's still a financial success for Warner Bros. thanks to a modest budget. The film is pacing 45.5 percent behind the three-day gross of its predecessor and is projected to earn $15.1 million over the Friday-Saturday-Sunday frame. That would give it an overall five-day start of $30.18 million (Wednesday through Sunday).

Filling out the top five, Ted 2 posted $4.4 million yesterday, off 67 percent from opening day last week. That's a sharp drop considering yesterday's grosses across the board were somewhat inflated due to Friday serving as the benefactor of the Independence Day holiday with many people busy with festivities come Saturday. The comedy sequel's eight-day total stands at $51.734 million, 47 percent behind where the first pic stood. Universal projects an $11.1 million sophomore frame.

Last week's other new release, Max, added $2.65 million yesterday to give it a healthy eight-day sum of $21.4 million. BoxOffice projects a $6.3 million second weekend.

Expanding into 870 locations this weekend, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl grabbed $488,000 yesterday for a $561 per-theater average. The much-buzzed-about indie flick has earned $3.17 million in all so far domestically. The pic should tally around $1.2 million this weekend.

Meanwhile, Faith of Our Fathers took in $179,063 from 344 theaters yesterday for a $521 per-theater average. The faith-based film's three-day haul is $367,854. BoxOffice projects a $420,000 weekend, giving it an estimated $609,000 five-day opening.
