Inside Out continued its stellar run in third place, although the film did take a hit this weekend thanks to Minions. The Pixar comedy snagged $17.1 million and now stands at $283.6 million in the US. Inside Out has already blown past other Pixar films like Wall-E, Brave and Ratatouille and will pass Up very soon to become one of Pixar's biggest original films. In international markets, the film has snagged $151 million for a solid worldwide total of $435.4 million.
Terminator: Genisys continued its mediocre stateside run with $13.7 million, enough to raise the film's total to $68.7 million. A final total of $90 million is a good bet at this point. Overseas, the film is doing a bit better with $156.1 million, but I don't know if that's quite enough to justify a sequel for the film. Disappointing numbers for sure, but not surprising in the least. Magic Mike XXL held extremely well for a Fourth of July release, dropping a mere 25% to $9.6 million in sixth place. The male stripper comedy has grossed $48.3 million in the US so far.
As for the new releases of the weekend, New Line's The Gallows grossed $10 million in fifth place, which is a decent result for the dirt cheap horror flick. The Cinemascore was terrible- a "C" from audiences- but I'm not sure that New Line really cares at all. The other new release of the weekend- Focus Features' Self/Less- was a bona fide flop, grossing a mere $5.3 million in ninth place. Throw that in the ever-growing pile of "Ryan Reynolds movies that flopped."Hopefully Deadpool can turn that around.
Next weekend sees the release of Ant-Man and Trainwreck. Here are my predictions:
1. Ant-Man- $71 million
2. Minions- $59 million
3. Trainwreck- $32.5 million
4. Jurassic World- $12.3 million
5. Inside Out- $11.9 million
6. Terminator: Genisys- $8.6 million
7. Magic Mike XXL- $7.5 million
8. The Gallows- $4.3 million
9. Ted 2- $3.8 million
10. Self/Less- $3 million
