Jurassic World and Inside Out Easily Defend Box Office Weekend

It was a battle for first place again this weekend as holdovers Jurassic World ($54.2 million) and Inside Out ($52.1 million) easily topped the box office.

Newcomers, Ted 2 managed $33 million for third place and Max $12.2 million for fourth.  Ted 2's opening is considerably lower than the $54.4 million debut of the first film... so it might need some legs to become as successful.

At $500 million Jurassic World is now the highest grossing film of 2015 domestically, beating Avengers: Age of Ultron's $452 million. And it's on it's way to becoming the highest grossing film worldwide as it also now ranks 8th (on the all time list)  with $1.238 billion. This also marks the first time in history where three movies have already passed the Billion dollar mark in the first half of the year (Furious 7, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jurassic World).

2012 is the year with the most Billion dollar movies, 4, as The Avengers, Skyfall, The Dark Knight Rises and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey all debuted.

Will 2015 break that record with possible Billion dollar mark movies with Spectre, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 and Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuts?  Or are there others in mix?
