Inside Out 2 Tracking Sets Up for Higher Opening Weekend than Dune and Godzilla X Kong

Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out 2 is generating strong tracking numbers, with sources indicating that it is poised to have the highest opening at the domestic box office so far this year. The film is expected to surpass the opening weekends of Dune Part Two and Godzilla X Kong with a projected 3-day haul between $80M-$85M.

This resurgence for Pixar comes in the post-Covid era, following lackluster opening weekends for summer releases like Elemental and Toy Story spinoff Lightyear. Inside Out 2’s release over the tried-and-true Fathers Day weekend is expected to draw in a wide audience.

The sequel to the 2015 hit dives back into the mind of now-teenage Riley, voiced by Kensington Tallman, as she navigates the complexities of growing up. In addition to the familiar emotions of Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust, and Sadness, the film introduces new characters Envy and Anxiety, voiced by Ayo Edebiri and Maya Hawke respectively. These additions are expected to bring fresh dynamics to the story.

A Step Up from the Original

Early previews of the first 35 minutes of Inside Out 2 at CinemaCon garnered positive reactions, with attendees praising the film for its humor and storytelling. The sequel is seen as a significant improvement over the original, which won an Oscar for Best Animated Feature. Directed by Pete Docter and Ronnie Del Carmen, Inside Out set a high bar for emotional storytelling and character development.

Overall, Inside Out 2 is shaping up to be a major success for Disney/Pixar, with strong tracking indicating a promising opening weekend at the box office. Fans of the original film and newcomers alike can look forward to a compelling story that delves into the complexities of human emotions in a way that only Pixar can deliver.
