Weekend Box Office: ‘Jurassic World’ continues to hold strong

Jurassic World

The Colin Trevorrow feature Jurassic World continued to hold strong in its second weekend, bringing in $102 million to retain the top spot at the box office. Jurassic World‘s total earnings to date also brought it to second place among the highest grossing films of the year, ahead of Furious 7 and just behind Avengers: Age of Ultron. The Chris Pratt-starring feature managed to hold off the newest Pixar film Inside Out, which earned $91.1 million in its opening weekend, ending up in second place. The box office totals saw a steep drop-off from that point, as the Melissa McCarthy-starring Spy‘s $10.5 million total was enough to land it in third place.

Inside Out wasn’t the only new film to land a spot on the box office chart, as Rick Famuyiwa’s newest film Dope landed in fifth place with a $6 million total, behind the earthquake film San Andreas, whose $8.2 million total was good enough for fourth place. Simultaneous openers Pitch Perfect 2 and Mad Max: Fury Road continued to end up next to each other, as the Elizabeth Banks feature landed in seventh place with $3.3 million, while the George Miller film finished the weekend in eighth place with $2.8 million. Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron marked its eighth weekend in the top ten, earning $2.7 million to end up in ninth place.

Among limited releases, the biggest opening went to The Overnight, as the Adam Scott-Taylor Schilling film earned $61,523 from three theatres for a PSA of $20,507. The Mark Ruffalo-Zoe Saldana feature Infinitely Polar Bear took home $47,398 in its limited release opening, giving it a PSA of $9,480 from five theatres. The Tribe, which has garnered attention for being entirely in sign language, made $9,000 from its single theatre weekend run, while the David Gordon Green film Manglehorn garnered $12,900 from three theatres for a PSA of $4,300 to go with its VOD earnings. The Michael Winterbottom film The Face of an Angel earned $10,000 from opening in 13 theatres, giving it a PSA of $769 alongside VOD revenue.
