Disney Saves Box Office as “Inside Out 2” Makes $500 Mil Worldwide in 8 Days


Disney’s “Inside Out 2” will hit the $500 million mark tonight cumulatively around the world.

In the US alone, “Inside Out 2” has earned a whopping $254 million in just 8 days.

“Inside Out 2” has literally saved the box office, and there’s no end in sight. On Thursday night in the US the Pixar film made $19 million. And that was a weekday night!

I will see “Inside Out” this weekend, but I’m telling you, adults are saying they tear up a few times. There’s nothing like schmaltz!

The box office is coming back. Next Friday, “A Quiet Place” part 3, the prequel, is also going to be huge. The trailer in the theater — which I saw with a real audience last night — gets a huge reaction. More films are coming as Hollywood ramps back up from the strikes of last summer. Plus, it’s really hot outside. You can’t get colder than in a movie theater. AMC could be storing raw meat, that’s how frigid it is!
