‘Inside Out 2’ Becomes Top-Grossing Movie of 2024

Inside Out 2 is showing no signs of slowing down as it heads into its second weekend.

Among other record-setting feats, the Pixar film is passing up Dune: Part Two to become the top-grossing film of 2024 at the domestic box office with more than $283 million in ticket sales through Friday, only its eighth day in release. (The Dune sequel topped out at $282.1 million domestically.)

Also on Friday, Inside Out 2 raced past the $500 million mark globally after finishing Thursday with a worldwide haul of $481.4 million.

In North America, the animated tentpole is expected to top the weekend with a domestic gross of $85 million to $90 million, a drop of less than 40 percent, and putting its domestic total at nearly $350 million through Sunday.

It’s also a powerhouse overseas, where its total through Thursday was $226.7 million, meaning Inside Out 2 could finish its second weekend with $650 million to $700 million in the bank. As of now, Dune: Part Two remains the top-grosser of the year at the worldwide box office with $711.8 million in ticket sales.

Elsewhere, Sony’s Bad Boys: Ride or Die, reteaming Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, will have no trouble staying at No. 2 in its third weekend with $15 million to $16 million for an impressive domestic tally nearing $150 million.

Among new offerings, Focus Features and New Regency’s The Bikeriders looks to open in third place with $9 million to $10 million after earning $1.45 million in Thursday previews, in line with expectations. Directed by Jeff Nichols, the movie follows the rise and fall of a motorcycle gang in the 1960s and stars Austin Butler, Jodie Comer and Tom Hardy. (New Regency and Focus hope to lure older males).

Russell Crowe-starrer The Exorcism is also opening nationwide, but its prospects are looking dim. Based on early returns, the indie pic may open to open to less than $2 million, one of the worst wide launches of Crowe’s career. The movie stars Crowe as an actor who starts to behave irrationally on the set of his latest horror film, prompting his daughter to investigate whether something more sinister is afoot.

The specialty box office sees the debut of Yorgos Lanthimos‘ latest film, Kinds of Kindness. The movie, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, stars Jesse Plemons, Emma Stone, Willem Dafoe, Margaret Qualley, Joe Alwyn, Hong Chau and Mamoudou Athie.
