Disney/Pixar’s “Inside Out” has edged Universal’s “Jurassic World” at the three-day Independence Day holiday box office with $29.8 million in the U.S. — reversing estimates that had placed the dino thriller in first.

The fourth weekend of “Jurassic World” wound up with $29.2 million for the Friday-Sunday period, ending its three-week stay in first place. Paramount’s “Terminator Genisys” finished a close third with $27 million, while Warner Bros.’ “Magic Mike XXL” lagged behind with $12.9 million.

“Inside Out” also won the five-day period, starting Wednesday, with $45.1 million at 4,148 locations — giving it $245.9 million Stateside in its third week at 4,158 locations.

“Jurassic World,” starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, stomped its way to $42.1 million at 3,737 screens, and ranks as the fourth-highest grossing domestic grosser of all time with $566.5 million.

“Terminator Genisys” took in $42.5 million for the five days and has grossed $85.5 million in its overseas launch.

The stripper sequel “Magic Mike XXL” wound up with $27.8 million from 3,355 sites in five days. The performance was front-loaded with $15 million in its first two days. But with a budget of just $14.8 million, “Magic Mike XXL” is already in the black for the studio.

    Inside Out deserves it! A mastepiece! Pixar did it again!

  2. Matthew McKinney says:

    I wonder how “Inside Out” won? Generally speaking, I thought “Jurassic World” was the better movie, and not because it was in the action-adventure genre.

  3. Jacques Strappe says:

    Finally quality beats mediocrity.

  4. John Wilds says:

    What chart were you looking at? All other box office polls still have Jurassic world on top. Terrible journalism at its finest. A quick google search for real numbers isn’t that hard.

    Why does this guy keep trolling with his posts about Pan?

  6. Movie Watcher says:

    I’m sorry, how do you know that MMXXL is ‘already in the black’? With P&A spend and exhibitor share (granted this is low in the opening weeks), it’s hard to come up with a model that shows the project is already in the black just based on domestic grosses. It was filmed in Georgia, so they got some incentive credits – not sure if that’s included in the prod spend figure you quoted. At any rate, yeah it will eventually be in the black.

  7. Scottie says:

    That’s a bummer that “Inside Out” got first place. I really wanted it to beat out “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” for highest-grossing film to never reach #1 – oh well. And what a disappointing showing for Terminator! So much for that new trilogy they were hoping for…

  8. Hal says:

    Nice for Inside Out.It deserved at least one week at #1.

  9. Cara says:

    Yay, Inside Out pulled out the win!

  10. Carl Gray says:

    LOL Pan looks like every other Peter Pan remake: a disgrace to the original. If you seriously think it will beat Inside Out’s opening weekend than you’re high. Expect no more than $30 million as opposed to Inside Out’s $92 million.
