Record Box Office! Moviegoing Isn't Extinct After All

LOS ANGELES (AP) – A foul-mouthed teddy bear is no match for a pack of dinosaurs. Seth MacFarlane’s “Ted 2” opened far under expectations with $32.9 million, according to Rentrak estimates Sunday.

The R-rated Universal Pictures sequel was expected to earn somewhere in the $50 million range going into its debut weekend.

Instead, “Jurassic World,” also a Universal film, held the top spot for the third weekend in a row with a mighty $54.2 million, pushing it past the $500 million mark domestically.

Disney and Pixar’s “Inside Out,” meanwhile, finished at a close No. 2, earning $52.1 million – only a 42 percent drop from its first weekend in theaters.

Max,” the other new opener, brought in a soft but expected $12.2 million to finish fourth.

jurassic worldNEW YORK (AP) — In a box-office bout of Tyrannosaurus-sized proportions, “Jurassic World” kept the No. 1 spot with one of the biggest second weeks ever, while Pixar’s “Inside Out” nearly matched it.

According to studio estimates Sunday, Universal’s “Jurassic World” took in $102 million in North American theaters, a holdover bested by only 2012’s “The Avengers.” The debut of Pixar’s latest was also massive, yielding an estimated $91 million.

Though “Inside Out” is the first Pixar release not to open in first place, it’s the largest opening for a movie not based on source material or a sequel. That record was previously held by 2009’s “Avatar.”

The two releases largely had the multiplexes to themselves. In a distant third place was the Melissa McCarthy comedy “Spy,” with $10.5 million in its third week.

Furious 7” just wasn’t fast enough: “Jurassic World” has officially lapped that film as the fastest flick to earn $1 billion at the international box office.

In the race for box office records, it seemed “Furious 7″ would be hard to beat. But like a hungry Indominous Rex, “Jurassic World” has been chomping up records left and right since its June 12 debut, first scoring the biggest worldwide opening weekend of all time, then the biggest domestic opening weekend of all time. And while “Furious 7″ achieved the jaw-dropping milestone of racing to $1 billion in only 17 days — besting previous champs “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2” and “The Avengers” — apparently that was just too long for “World,” which blew past that impressive feat in just 13 days.

As Forbes reports, “World” has been on an insane trajectory since its release. It sat at the 75th all-time spot on the global box office charts on Friday, before leap-frogging up 52 spots on the list by weekend’s end. On Sunday night, it sat at around $981 million, and reached the sweet, round $1 billion mark on Monday, placing it at number 22 on the all-time list — and rising.

It seems that the sky’s the limit for “Jurassic World,” and TheWrap wonders if it has enough momentum to take on the top of the all-time list: “Avatar” ($2.8 billion) and “Titanic” ($2.2 billion). At this point, “World” should easily slide into the top ten on the chart, though those are some huge numbers near the peak. Still, “World” has already proven that it can beat Marvel, so the sky is really the limit for this flick; its real competition will be out later this year (hey there, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2″ and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”!).

Stay tuned. There’s certainly plenty more money — and plenty more records — to be made.

independence day resurgenceJust over a year from the film’s release, Fox has announced a new, improved title for “Independence Day 2,” and offered up the first photo from the long-awaited sequel.

The flick is now known as “Independence Day Resurgence,” and what it’s missing in punctuation (seriously, there should be a colon after “Day,” right?), it more than makes up for in casting. Nearly every big name from the first film — save for the glaring omission of too-expensive Will Smith — is returning for the follow-up, including Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, and Judd Hirsch.

Joining those familiar faces this time around are series newcomers Liam Hemsworth, Sela Ward (who’s replacing Pullman as POTUS), Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Joey King, and Maika Monroe. “Resurgence” centers around the people of Earth bracing for another alien attack, since the distress call that the first wave of aliens sent out during the invasion and ensuing battle in 1996’s “Independence Day” is only just now reaching their home planet.

Perhaps Earth’s defense in “Resurgence” involves a trip to the moon? That’s certainly implied by this first image from the flick (below), which calls the pictured spacecraft a Moon Tug. We’re not sure exactly what that means, but we can’t wait to find out.
