‘Inside Out’ Flips Box Office Records Inside Out!
Pete Docter's latest smashes opening weekend box office record for an original film.
“Pete Docter and Pixar entered the record books this weekend with a massive opening for Inside Out. The film connected with audiences in a big way, grossing $91.1 million, an all-time record for both an original animated and live-action movie.
Let’s put it into perspective: the previous record-holder for a completely original concept (in other words, not a sequel, remake, or adaptation) was James Cameron’s Avatar, which opened with $77M in 2009. In animation, the record holder was Brad Bird’s The Incredibles, which chalked up $70.4M during its first weekend in 2004.”
