Jurassic World stomps past Inside Out to maintain box office title

Jurassic World has continued to wreak havoc at the North American box office by breaking the $100 million mark in its second week on release.

The dinosaur action epic, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, secured the biggest global launch of all time last weekend (12-14Jun15) with almost $512 million and the second-biggest opening in North America with $208.8 million, just behind 2012's The Avengers.


Now Jurassic World has stomped to the top for another record-setting week, taking $102 million to retain the box office title. The impressive take makes it only the second movie in industry history to cross the $100 million mark in its second week, again just shy of The Avengers, which raked in $103.1 million in week two.


Animated Pixar adventure Inside Out gave Jurassic World a good run for its money, opening in second place with a big $91.1 million haul.


Melissa McCarthy's comedy Spy is a distant third with $10.5 million, with San Andreas and new coming-of-age drama Dope rounding out the top five.
