Jurassic World takes another bite at the top of the box office

Apparently nothing can contain the dinosaurs.

Jurassic World took in $54 million this weekend for the top spot and crossed the $500 million dollar mark in the U.S., making it only the fifth film to ever do so. Globally it now stands at $1.23 billion, making it the eighth highest grossing film ever.

Pixar’s Inside Out remained in second for its second weekend and dropped only 42.4 percent and took in $51.2 million for a new domestic total of $184.9 million. Globally it’s at $266.4 million.

Ted 2 landed in third place as many expected, but its $33 million debut weekend was $20 million less than the first film. Not a good sign for its longevity.

Max, the story of a military dog, took fourth place with $12.2 million.

Rounding out the top five was Melissa McCarthy’s Spy with $7.8 million.

This week’s big releases are Terminator: Genisys and Magic Mike XXL.
