'Inside Out' sets record for biggest original box office debut; 'Jurassic World' will be fastest to $1 billion
The film's $91.1 million domestic opening weekend makes "Inside Out" the largest debut ever for an original property (a non-sequel and non-sourced work). That surpasses the previous record holder, 2009's "Avatar," which opened with $77 million.
Projections last week had "Inside Out" grossing in the neighborhood of $60 million over the weekend, but thanks to overwhelming critical response and a 51% drop in ticket sales for "Jurassic World," the film is the second biggest Pixar opening. Behind "Toy Story 3," which had an opening weekend of $110.3 million.But that doesn't mean "Jurassic World" - which had the highest-grossing opening weekend ever last week - didn't do well its second weekend in theaters.
"Furious 7" currently has the record, taking only 17 days to do it.
"World" will likely do it in 13 days.
