To say Disney Pixar’s Inside Out had an uphill fight this weekend against the all-time opening weekend king in Jurassic World was as understatement. After a weekend in which the sequel to Jurassic Park III racked in $208 million, the follow-up was an expected decline. Still, racking in $102 million in box office receipts, a 51% drop but still took home the top spot for the second weekend in a row. Inside Out knocked down most industry predictions and racked up $91 million at the box office for the second highest opening weekend in Disney Pixar history. The top spot belongs to Toy Story 3, which opened with $110.3 million in 2010.

Inside Out‘s $91 million did set a record though. It became the highest grossing film that wasn’t a sequel or sourced work, beating out 2009’s Avatar which made $77 million in 2009. Of course, Avatar eventually became the highest grossing film ever.

Elsewhere in the top 10, DOPE, the indie coming of age comedy finished in 5th with over $6 million, Spy continued its consistency by pocketing $10 million ($77.7M domestic) at 3rd and 4th belonged to San Andreas which made $8.2 million this weekend, raising its grand sum to $132 million total.
