The Box Office Buzz: Inside Out 2 and More Dominating the Charts

Friday afternoon saw a major uptick at the box office thanks to Disney+ keeping Pixar fans at home and out of movie theaters. Inside Out 2 is making waves with projections suggesting a massive opening of $120M-$130M across 4,440 theaters. There is speculation that the numbers could be even higher, with sources reporting a turnout by Hispanic and Latino moviegoers driving significant business to the film. Despite some stiff competition, Disney’s latest offering is proving to be a hit.

In second place, Sony’s Bad Boys: Ride or Die is standing strong against the animated juggernaut that is Inside Out 2. The film is experiencing a modest drop of only -50% in its second weekend, pulling in $28M and a $7.5M Friday at 3,885 sites. The action-packed sequel is on track to cross the $100M mark by the end of the weekend, solidifying its position at the box office.

20th Century Studios/Disney’s Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes continues to hold its own in the top five, raking in $4.45M in its sixth weekend and pushing its total to $157M. Meanwhile, Alcon/Sony’s The Garfield Movie and Paramount’s IF are also hanging tough, with both films maintaining a presence in the top five. The Garfield Movie has brought in $4.1M in its fourth weekend, while IF is set to cross the century mark on Sunday, marking a milestone for star Ryan Reynolds.

On Friday morning, Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out 2 made a splash with a $13M haul from Thursday previews, setting a new record for 2024. The film has garnered critical acclaim, boasting a 93% Certified Fresh rating from critics and a 95% approval rating from audiences. With an overseas cume of $22.3M already in the bank, Inside Out 2 is poised to exceed expectations and surpass its $135M global opening projection.

Unlike some recent sequels, Inside Out 2 has managed to bring back much of its original voice cast, adding to the film’s appeal. Early audience reactions have been overwhelmingly positive, with Thursday preview audiences awarding the film 4 1/2 stars on PostTrak. Families and parents are particularly enthusiastic about the film, with women and moms making up a significant portion of the audience. As the film continues to build momentum, it’s clear that Pixar’s magic is as potent as ever.

In addition to the success of Inside Out 2, Sony’s Bad Boys franchise has achieved a major milestone, crossing the $1 billion mark at the global box office. The latest installment, Ride or Die, has continued to perform well, adding to the franchise’s impressive overall earnings. With a solid showing in its first week, the film is set to be a significant player in the summer box office landscape.

Overall, the box office landscape is looking strong, with a mix of original hits and successful franchises dominating the charts. Inside Out 2’s explosive opening and the continued success of films like Bad Boys: Ride or Die are a testament to the enduring appeal of the big screen experience. As theaters continue to attract audiences with a mix of new releases and familiar favorites, the future looks bright for the film industry.
