An emotional win for theaters, Hollywood: ‘Inside Out 2’ scores massive $155 million opening

Cheering fans in front of a wall of entertainment images.

Hollywood’s summer movie anxieties gave way to joy this weekend with the massive debut of Disney and Pixar’s “Inside Out 2.” The animated sequel earned $155 million in ticket sales from 4,440 theaters in the U.S. and Canada. That is according to studio estimates Sunday. Not only is it the second-highest opening weekend in Pixar’s nearly 29 years of making films and the second-biggest animated opening ever. It’s also the biggest of 2024 which had not had any films debut over $100 million. With an estimated $140 million from international showings, “Inside Out 2” had a staggering, and record-breaking, $295 million global debut.
