‘Magic Mike XXL’ and ‘Terminator: Genisys’ no match for ‘Jurassic World’ at box office

jurassic-world-

There were two sequels that were set to come out this week and each one was thought to have a run for the top spot, but instead prove that they are just stereotypical sequels.

Once again Jurassic World is the top movie this weekend bringing in an estimated $30.9 million over the holiday weekend. The movie slowly but surely moving up the charts for the top box office for both the domestic and worldwide box office. It’s currently ranked 4th at $558 million but has a shot to beating out 2012’s The Avengers at $623 million.

Inside Out just misses the top spot for the third straight week bringing in an estimated $30.1 million. It now is past the $200 million mark and is looking to try and have the biggest box office for a Pixar movie, but has a long way to go beat out 2010’s Toy Story 3 at $415 million.

Terminator:Genisys doesn’t do as well as expected, but does beat out the other releases with it’s estimated $28.7 million opening. This isn’t the highest opening, but it’s right around where the other ones premiered at too.

Magic Mike XXL didn’t fare as well as the first one did only bringing in an estimated $11.6 million while Ted 2 round out the top five with an estimated $11 million.

For the rest of the box office, you can go here.

The new Minions movie is set to come out this week and should be expected to do well at the box office, but considering how this week went, it’s all up in the air.

‘Ted 2’ can’t match ‘Jurassic World’ in opening weekend

jp9

There was two movies that were set to come out this week with the loveable teddy bear, Ted 2, trying to grab the top spot for the box office, but was unable to take down either Jurassic World or Inside Out.

Jurassic World makes it three straight weeks at the top of the box office bringing in an estimated $54.2 million. The movie now has over $500 million domestically and now holds the record for the fastest movie to get to that mark getting there in 17 days compared to The Avengers (2012) which got there in 23 days. The movie has some ways to go to become the highest grossing film of all time, but at this rate, it’s possible.

Inside Out just misses beating out Jurassic World for the second straight week with it’s estimated $52.1 million. The movie continues to do well, as it should cross over the $200 million mark by the end of next week. At this rate, it should give Toy Story 3 a run for the top Pixar movie, but with Minions set to come out in a few weeks, it might effect it’s chances.

The premiere of Ted 2 had high expectations, but was unable to meet them with it’s estimated $33 million opening. The first movie was a surprise hit that opened at $54 million, but this movie not only had a lower opening, but also has lower ratings on Rotten Tomatoes.

The other new movie this week was Max which premiered with an estimated $12.2 million. Rounding out the top five is Spy with an estimated $7.8 million.

For the rest of the box office, you can go here.

There are two big movies set to come out this week with Terminator: Genysis and Magic Mike XXL. These two movies are sure to knock Jurassic World for the top spot next week, as the will battle for the top spot. Magic Mike might have the advantage because of the type of movie that it is.

“Jurassic World” chomps out “Inside Out” for the top of the box office

jp7

There were two new movies to come out this week and one them gave Jurassic World a run for their money for the top spot, but was unable to top win it at the end.

Jurassic World grabs the top spot for the second straight week bringing in an estimated $102 million. This puts the movie at $398 million domestically and $981 million worldwide. The movie is well on it’s way to shatter the highest box office total and set a new standard for future movies.

Pixar’s latest movie, Inside Out, almost reaches $100 million, but falls just short with an estimated $91 million. This is the second highest opening for a Pixar movie and the highest since 2010’s Toy Story 3. The movie, which currently has a 100% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, should do well at the box office and give Toy Story 3 a run for it’s money for the highest box office for a Pixar movie.

Spy falls down the chart to number three with an estimated $10 million. The movie currently has $74 million domestically and should cross the $100 million mark before the end of it’s run.

Rounding out the top five is San Andreas with an estimated $8.2 million and the other new movie for this week Dope with an estimated $6 million.

For the rest of the box office, you can go here.

There is really only one big movie coming out this week in Ted 2. If it does as well as the first one it’s opening weekend, it should top the list but if it’s not as good then it might fail to grab the spot from Jurassic World.

Top 5 movies coming out in June

movie lists

#5 – Entourage
Starring:  Adrian Grenier, Jeremy Piven, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara
Out: June 5th

This HBO fan favorite show is going to the big screen (just like in the show) and it’s going to be of epic proportions. This movie has been getting a lot of hype and there is going to be cameo galore. The movie is going to be bigger (and hopefully better) then the TV show as we get to live in nostalgia.

#4 –  Ted 2
Starring:  Liam Neeson, Mark Wahlberg, Amanda Seyfried, Morgan Freeman
Out: June 26th

This may be one of the best comedies or the worst comedies of the year. The first movie was a surprise hit but the last Seth McFarlane movie (A Million Ways to Die in the West) was a bust. This movie will probably be filled with cameos (look out for the Ryan Reynolds one) and will have a lot to prove considering how high the bar is set after the first movie.

#3- Inside Out
Starring:  Diane Lane, Amy Poehler, Kyle MacLachlan, Mindy Kaling
Out: June 19th

In this latest Disney movie, we follow all the emotions in our brain so that we can finally understand how it all works. This movie is going to prove why Disney is the best at what it does because only they can create a movie that any one person at any age can love.

#2- Spy
Starring:  Jude Law, Raad Rawi, Melissa McCarthy, Jessica Chaffin

Out: June 5th

Anything with Melissa McCarthy in is going to be box office gold. Add to the mix that Jason Statham is doing a comedy and you got yourself a date for Friday night. Like any other Paul Feig movie, this is going to have a lot of slap stick humor (mostly in the form of Melissa McCarthy) but with an underlying meaning.

#1- Jurassic World
Starring:  Chris Pratt, Judy Greer, Ty Simpkins, Bryce Dallas Howard
Out: June 12th

Yes it is true. There is another reboot being made to yet another classic. But this one, just might be ok. Steven Speilberg returns back to his movie and brings along the new ‘it’ boy in Chris Pratt. The story looks interesting and with the graphic update that has occurred over the last decade, expect it to be more lifelike then before. This is going to be one movie that you won’t mind paying the extra money to see in IMAX.

For the rest of the list, you can go here.
