Inside Out moved into first place on Monday with $6.92 million. Yesterday marked the fourth time Inside Out has led the daily box office thus far. The critically acclaimed 3D computer animated blockbuster from Disney and Pixar declined 57 percent from Sunday and a healthy 34 percent from last Monday. Inside Out has grossed a stronger than expected $192.06 million in eleven days and is set to surpass the $200 million domestic mark either today or Wednesday. The film is currently running 8 percent ahead of the $178.33 million eleven-day gross of 2013's Monsters University and 19 percent behind the $235.81 million eleven-day take of 2010's Toy Story 3.

Jurassic World placed in a close second with $6.53 million. The 3D blockbuster sequel from Universal and Legendary fell 62 percent from Sunday and 44 percent from last Monday. Jurassic World has grossed a massive $506.90 million through 18 days of release. The film is already the fifth highest grossing film of all-time without adjusting for ticket price inflation and before much longer will move past the $534.86 million final gross of 2008's The Dark Knight to move into fourth place. Jurassic World is running 9 percent ahead of the $463.35 million 18-day take of 2012's Marvel's The Avengers.

Ted 2 continued to underwhelm on Monday with a third place take of $3.68 million. The Seth MacFarlane directed comedy sequel from Universal and MRC was down 59 percent from Sunday. The four-day total for Ted 2 stands at $37.19 million. The film is performing well below pre-release expectations and is running a disappointing 41 percent behind the $63.14 million four-day start of 2012's Ted.

Max followed in fourth place for the day with $1.48 million. The modestly budgeted family film from Warner Bros. and MGM was down a promising 55 percent from Sunday. Max has grossed $13.64 million in its first four days. That is in line with expectations and places the film 24 percent ahead of the $11.01 million four-day start of last year's Earth to Echo (which opened on a Wednesday).

Fox's Spy rounded Monday's top five with $0.947 million. The Melissa McCarthy led comedy was down 61 percent from Sunday and down just 25 percent from last Monday. Thanks in part to strong holding power over the past two weeks, Spy has grossed $89.41 million in 25 days. The film is set to surpass the $90 million mark today.
