‘Jurassic’ barely beats ‘Inside Out’

In a box-office bout of Tyrannosaurus-sized proportions, Jurassic World kept the No. 1 spot with one of the biggest second weeks ever, while Pixar’s Inside Out nearly matched it with a $91.1 million debut well above expectations.

Universal’s Jurassic World took in $102 million in North American theaters, according to studio estimates Sunday, making it only the second release to break $100 million in its second week. The enormous holdover for Jurassic World, which last week set an opening weekend record with $208.8 million, has been bested by only 2012’s The Avengers, which made $103.1 million in second week.

Inside Out is the first Pixar release not to open in first place, following an unparalleled two-decade streak of 14 straight No. 1s. But it’s the largest opening for a wholly original movie (one not based on source material or a sequel), unseating Avatar in that distinction.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Where available, international are included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

1. Jurassic World, $102 million ($160.5 million international).

2. Inside Out, $91.1 million ($41 million international).

3. Spy, $10.5 million ($9.6 million international).

4. San Andreas, $8.2 million ($18 million international).

5. Dope, $6 million.

6. Insidious Chapter 3, $4.1 million ($3 million international).
