Ted 2 fails to impress at box office as Jurassic World lives on
With only two major releases hitting theaters this week, movie-goers didn’t have a lot of options for new content but even with the release of the highly-anticipated follow-up comedy “Ted 2,” it seems fans can’t get enough Dino-fighting action.
For a third-week in a row, Universal’s “Jurassic World” reigns supreme at the domestic box-office. The dino-flick earned an additional $54.2M over the weekend, passing the $500M mark domestically.
Trailing behind the epic adventure back to the doomed Dinosaur park this week was Disney’s latest Pixar offering “Inside Out,” the film earned an impressive $52M across the country over the weekend to take second-place overall. “Inside Out” has now earned just under $185M since it was released in theaters.
Releasing this week in third-place was another of Universal Pictures’ summer films, “Ted 2,” which failed to take the number-one spot but did manage to stay in the top-three. The film earned a little less than $33M across an estimated 3,442 screens.
In fourth-place overall was another new-debut, “Max” from Warner Bros. Pictures. The touching story of an Armed Service dog and his family earned $12.2M across 2,855 screens.
Finishing off the top-five this week is another comedy, this time from 20th Century Fox. “Spy” earned $7.8M this weekend, raising the film’s running total to just over $88M to date.
