Box Office: ‘Inside Out 2’ Aims to Reverse Pixar’s Woes With $85 Million Debut

Reading now: 643

Rebecca Rubin Senior Film and Media Reporter “Inside Out 2” should evoke an emotion that Pixar hasn’t felt about the box office in years: Joy.

The follow-up film to 2015’s cerebral hit “Inside Out” is estimated to score a stellar $80 million to $90 million in its box office debut.

If projections hold, it’ll overtake “Dune: Part Two” ($82.5 million) and “Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire” ($80 million) as the biggest opening of the year.

As this weekend’s only new nationwide release, it’ll have no trouble taking the box office crown from the prior champion, “Bad Boys: Ride or Die.” The fourth installment in Sony’s buddy-cop comedy, starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, launched over the weekend with $56.5 million and should add roughly $28 million in its sophomore outing. “Inside Out 2” also looks to snap Pixar’s recent cold streak following last summer’s “Elemental” (which scored the worst start in Pixar’s modern history with $29.6 million) and 2022’s “Toy Story” spinoff “Lightyear” (which also stumbled with a $50.5 million opening).
