'Inside Out 2' scores $100M in its second weekend, setting records

Cheering fans in front of a wall of entertainment images.

NEW YORK (AP) — Weekend number two was just as joyous for “Inside Out 2.” The Pixar sequel collected $100 million in ticket sales in its second weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday, setting a new record for an animated movie in its follow-up frame in theaters. Only six movies ever have had better second weekends. The previous best second weekend for an animated title was the $92 million for “The Super Mario Bros. Movie.” In just a week and a half, “Inside Out 2” has become 2024’s highest-grossing film to date with $724.4 million globally. In about a week, “Inside Out 2” will likely blow through the $1 billion mark, which would make it the first film since “Barbie” to do so.
