‘Jurassic World’ Headed for $103 Million, ‘Inside Out’ Happy at $84 Million at Weekend B.O.

The power of emotions proved to be serious competition against the power of velociraptors at the box office last night. Disney-Pixar’s “Inside Out” exceeded early expectations and made $34 million Friday night, beating “Jurassic World” for the evening on its way to becoming one of Pixar’s biggest openings with $84 to $89 million for the weekend.

Meanwhile, “Jurassic World” is on track for the largest-ever second weekend performance with $29 million on Friday for a total $103 million weekend, according to early estimates, possibly outdoing “The Avengers'” previous record of $103.05 million.

The dino pic, which stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, has already broken a laundry list of records, including largest opening weekend ($208.8 million), largest international bow ($524.4 million) and quickest film to cross $300 million. Should “Jurassic World” live up to current projections, it will make $400 million domestically by Monday, knocking “Jurassic Park” off its perch as the highest-grossing installment in the series.

Inside Out,” which stars Amy Poehler as the dominant emotion in the mind of an 11-year-old girl, proved it was off to a joyful start Thursday night, when the animated pic posted $3.7 million in previews — the best for any Disney-Pixar outing.

If “Inside Out” maintains its pace and posts $84 million by the weekend’s end, it will join the high ranks of Pixar’s biggest openings (“Monsters University” bowed to $82.5 million in 2013 and “Toy Story 3” preemed to $110.3 million in 2010).

Both PG-rated “Inside Out” and PG-13-rated “Jurassic World” will benefit from the Father’s Day holiday weekend crowd.

Dope” and “Spy” will jockey for third place among those viewers not seeking family fare. R-rated “Spy,” which stars Melissa McCarthy as a CIA desk agent in the field for the first time, opened in first place earlier this month to $32 million, but fell to $10 million in this weekend’s estimates.

Also in theaters this weekend is “Dope,” an indie high school comedy that generated buzz after premiering at Sundance. “Dope” is on track for a $6.4 million weekend after making $2 million Friday night. The coming-of-age comedy is playing in 2,002 theaters, wide for a Sundance film but smaller than “Inside Out’s” 3,946.
