Inside Out 2 Dominates Box Office: Surpasses Frozen II to Become 4th Highest-Grossing Animated Film in North America

Inside Out 2, released on June 14, has proven to be an unstoppable force at both the domestic and global box office. The sequel to Pixar’s beloved animated film has now surpassed Disney’s Frozen II to become the fourth highest-grossing animated film of all time in North America. Here’s a detailed look at its remarkable box office journey.

Record-Breaking Run

Inside Out 2, directed by Kelsey Mann and featuring an impressive voice cast including Amy Poehler, Maya Hawke, and Ayo Edebiri, has been dominating the North American box office since its release. The film has garnered immense love and support from both domestic and international audiences, leading to phenomenal box office numbers.

Surpassing Frozen II

According to trade analyst Luiz Fernando, Inside Out 2 has earned a staggering $478.2 million in North America, surpassing Frozen II’s $477.4 million domestic run. This achievement makes it the fourth highest-grossing animated film of all time in North America. The movie saw only a 33.3% drop from last Monday, demonstrating its strong staying power in theaters.

On Track to Beat Finding Dory

Inside Out 2 is now eyeing the third spot by aiming to surpass Finding Dory’s domestic haul of $486.3 million. With its current momentum, the sequel is expected to cross the $500 million mark, making it the 8th fastest film to achieve this feat in just 21 days, beating Barbie’s record of 22 days.

Global Success

The film’s success isn’t limited to North America. Inside Out 2 has already crossed the one-billion mark at the worldwide box office, with its current global collection standing at $1.04 billion. This impressive performance underscores the film’s universal appeal and the enduring popularity of the Inside Out franchise.

A Bright Spot for Exhibitors

The success of Inside Out 2 has brought much-needed relief to exhibitors after a bleak summer box office. Even the release of big-budget films like Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga couldn’t match the animated sequel’s impact. Prior to Inside Out 2, Bad Boys: Ride or Die also performed well but eventually ceded its top spot to this animated juggernaut.

The Road Ahead

As Inside Out 2 continues its remarkable run, it is projected to achieve a domestic total of $640 million to $690 million. The film’s strong box office performance is a testament to the captivating storytelling and beloved characters that have resonated with audiences worldwide.

Inside Out 2’s phenomenal success highlights the power of well-crafted animated films to capture the hearts and minds of viewers, transcending age and geography. As it continues to break records and set new milestones, Inside Out 2 is poised to become a defining film of 2024.
