Inside Out” is leading the holiday weekend box office, pacing firmly ahead of new releases “Terminator Genisys” and “Magic Mike XXL.”

The Disney-Pixar animated pic pulled in $12.5 million on Friday, bringing its cumulative haul to $228 million Stateside in its third week of competition. Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling and Bill Hader voice the emotions of an 11-year-old girl in the family film, which is playing in 4,158 locations.

Close behind is another hefty holdover: “Jurassic World.” The dinosaur actioner, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, logged $11.8 million in Friday grosses across 3,737 screens. It will probably add another $15 million-$20 million to its cumulative gross before the weekend is over, pushing the Universal release farther past its already-crossed $500 million mark.

“Terminator Genisys” managed $10.6 million in Friday receipts on 3,758 screens, good for third place. The fourth installment in the dystopian robot series, which stars Emilia Clarke and Arnold Schwarzenegger, is expected to finish at $43 million for the five-day weekend, slightly lower than early estimates had pegged it.

Channing Tatum and his cohort of strippers finished at No. 4, with “Magic Mike XXL” generating $6.2 million on Friday. With a budget of just $14.8 million, the saucy dance pic will still generate a hefty profit for Warner Bros, even if it’s unlikely that it will hit the forecasted $45 million-plus in the five-day weekend. Joe Manganiello and Matt Bomer also star in the sequel to the 2013 sleeper hit.

    Personally, I think the critics are being overly harsh with GENISYS. I liked it better than JW.

  2. Dallas says:

    Stick a fork in him, Arnold (and the Terminator franchise) is done. R.I.P

  3. C.M. Brandt says:

    Magic Mike was financed by Tatum’s Iron Horse production company. Warner is just distributing and has spent far more than what the film cost to produce on P&A. While the film will definitely turn a profit, it’s not all green to WB.

    • Movie Watcher says:

      Yes, I wish they could get the business side aspects a bit better here – anyone can (and does) report on box office gross. Some aspects of entertainment industry economics can be opaque, but the difference between a distributor and producer isn’t.

  4. Terminator Genysis is the fith instalment in the Terminator franchise, not the forth.

  5. Jim says:

    Despite the success of Jurassic World, maybe Hollywood will get the hint that people don’t want all this rebooted, remade garbage.

    What the heck?

  7. anyonymous says:

    Hollywood keeps selling same summer movie blockbusters since Jaws; they all have a scary monster, a hero who takes charge, or a super villain where the odds seem in his/her favor.

    • nerdrage says:

      Well except Titanic. Avatar doesn’t really seem to fit either – is Stephen Lang really a “scary monster” or super villain? And those are the two biggest box office movies of all time. Other than that, you’ve accurately described a few ever popular tropes that have been around since the days when the ancient Greeks made up stories about heroes fighting sea monsters and whatnot.

  8. Tyler says:

    That movie is gonna flop badly. Funnily enough it was originally supposed to come out later this month.

  9. nerdrage says:

    That just looks like a mess. But with kids’ films, you never can tell. I also thought Alice in Wonderland (with Depp) looked hideous.
