Pixar's Inside Out 2 breaks opening weekend record


Pixar's Inside Out 2 bought in an estimated $295 million (AED 1 billion) at the box office during its opening weekend around the world.

The figure means the movie has become the highest-grossing animated film opening of all time. 

Ticket sales topped $155 million (AED 569 million) in North America, the film's largest market. 

In 2015 the original Oscar-winning movie grossed $90 million (AED 330 million) in its opening weekend and a total of $858 million (AED 3.1 billion) worldwide while in theaters. 

Inside Out 2's successful opening comes as a relief for the film industry which saw dips in ticket sales and production following writer strikes for films which were due for release this year.

The number of cinema tickets sold in North America this year is down by a quarter compared to this time in 2023.
