Inside Out 2 Crosses $1 Billion Worldwide

Pixar’s Inside Out 2 has become the first movie of 2024 to pass $1 billion worldwide after its third No. 1 finish in a row. The smash hit added $57 million to its domestic total, and edged out A Quiet Place: Day One, which finished in second with $53 million in its opening weekend. Inside Out 2’s new domestic total is $469.3 million, and its $545.5 million international total pushed it over the $1 billion milestone.

Only 11 animated films prior to Inside Out 2 have managed to achieve that feat. It’s also the first film since Barbie to reach $1 billion.

Naturally, Disney executives are very pleased by the way fans have responded to the sequel.

Kevin Costner’s passion project, Horizon, had a third-place finish, with only $11 million in its debut. Meanwhile, Bad Boys: Ride or Die’s fourth-place finish with $10.3 million and $165.2 million to date has it poised to pass Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes as the summer’s second-most successful movie.

The Bikeriders pulled up in sixth with $3.3 million, and a new running total of $16.2 million. The Garfield Movie had minor roar in seventh place with $2 million towards its $89.6 million total.
