Box Office: “Inside Out” and “Jurassic” neck and neck, “Ted 2” a distant third


“Jurassic World” and “Inside Out” are in a dead heat headed into Sunday night in their second weekend in release. Both are hovering at the $53-54 million mark. We’ll have to wait til the dust settles to call a winner there, though they’re both blockbusters, already exceeding expectations and already world beaters.

“Jurassic” looks to clear $500 million in the U.S. by early next week, “Inside Out” $200 million by next Friday.

“Ted 2” is riding weak reviews to a $31-32 million or so take. Nothing to sneeze at, but well below sequel expectations, which some are reporting were in the $45 million range.

“Max,” the patriotic dog-loving Warner Brothers/MGM dog-and-his-boy comedy-thriller is headed towards $13 million plus.

“Dope” plunged in its second week, “A Little Chaos” didn’t set the world on fire in limited counter-programming release, nor did anything else.

“Spy” should hit $100 by the end of next weekend.
