‘Inside Out 2’ Posts Record Tuesday Box Office for Animated Movie

 

Disney/Pixar‘s Inside Out 2 grossed $29.1M stateside on Tuesday, representing a record for an animated movie. That beats the first Tuesday gross of 2018’s Incredibles 2 at $27M. The haul flies the Kelsey Mann-directed movie past the double century point at the domestic B.O. in its fifth day with $205.7M, making it the second-highest-grossing movie of 2024 YTD behind Dune: Part Two‘s $282.1M. Worldwide was $46M yesterday taking the global cume for Inside Out 2 to $380M.

 

Stateside, Inside Out 2‘s box office reps the sixth-highest-grossing non-opening Tuesday of all time behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man: No Way Home, The Lion King (2019) and The Force Awakens‘ second Tuesday. Overall, it’s the eighth-highest-grossing Tuesday.

 

Disney wisely kept identity politics and controversial issues out of Inside Out 2. That is no reason to expect a similar reprieve in the next sequel.
