LOS ANGELES - Universal's "Jurassic World" topped the weekend box office for the fourth straight week despite a strong showing by Disney/Pixar's animated "Inside Out," now in its third week, and "Terminator: Genysis" from Paramount.
The dinosaur-themed juggernaut continued its box-office onslaught with a strong $30.90 million despite a powerful punch from "Inside Out" with its $30.10 million, Arnold Schwarzenegger's fifth outing as a cyborg from the future in "Terminator: Genysis" and the Warner Bros.' female skewing "Magic Mike XXL," both of which opened to solid weekend numbers, with $28.70 million and $11.60 million.
According to Box Office Mojo, an estimated 96 percent of the audience for "Magic Mike XXL" was female, despite the fact that Matthew McConaughey's abs did not return from the original! If anything, this shows studio bosses that female skewing films are indeed moneymakers.
Altogether, "Inside Out" totals were $246.16 for three weeks, with five-day totals for "Terminator: Genysis" was $44.16 with "Magic Mike XXL" clocking in at $25.66 over the same span.
The rest stacked up this way:
5. "Ted 2" (Universal) $11.0 million for a two-week total of $58.33 million
6. "Max (2015)" (Warner Bros.) $6.61 million for a two-week total of $25.35 million
7. "Spy" (Fox) $5.50 million for a five-week total of $97.90 million
8. "San Andreas" (Warner Bros.) $3.03 million for a six-week total of $147.37 million.
9. "Me and Earld and the Dying Girl" (Fox Searchlight) $1.32 million for four-week total of $4.0 million
10. "Dope" (Open Roads) $1.10 million for four-week total of $14.10 million
