Pixar’s Inside Out 2 has maintained its stronghold on the box office, showing remarkable endurance in its second weekend.

The animated sequel has overtaken Dune: Part Two to become the highest-grossing film of 2024 in the domestic market, raking in a staggering $283 million in ticket sales within just eight days of its release.

Globally, Inside Out 2 hit a significant milestone, surpassing the $500 million mark on Friday. By the end of Thursday, its worldwide total stood at $481.4 million, showcasing its immense popularity across the globe.

Projections for the weekend indicate that the film will close with a domestic gross between $85 million and $90 million, representing a decline of less than 40%. This performance will bring its domestic total close to $350 million by Sunday.

Internationally, Inside Out 2 is proving to be a financial powerhouse. As of Thursday, its overseas earnings had reached $226.7 million. With these numbers, the film is on track to amass between $650 million and $700 million globally by the end of its second weekend.

While Inside Out 2 has made impressive strides, Dune: Part Two still holds the title of the highest-grossing film of the year at the global box office, with $711.8 million in ticket sales. However, the rapid success of Pixar’s latest release suggests it may soon surpass this benchmark.
