Inside Out 2

‘Inside Out 2’ Crosses $500 Million Mark at Domestic Box Office

Inside Out continues to reach new milestones at the box office. After crossing the $1 billion mark globally, the newest Pixar film has now crossed the $500 million mark at the domestic box office. It reached this milestone on the 4th of July. The film earned $7.2 million on Independence Day to push it across this line. Globally, it has now reached over $1.07 billion. This makes it the sixth most successful animated film globally ever.

The film is by far the most successful of the year to date. It’s nearest rival, Dune: Part Two, has a domestic total to date of $282.1 million. It also is showing its strength against other animated films historically. It beat Incredibles 2 to the half-billion dollar mark. Currently, Incredibles 2 is the most successful Pixar film at the Box Office to date. If Inside Out 2 continues on its current track and doesn’t get too much competition from Despicable Me 4, it is very possible that it could become the most successful Pixar film of all time.

The film is only the 11th animated flick that has joined the $1 billion club. Eight of these come from either Disney and Pixar. It also is the first film since last summer’s blockbuster Barbie to reach this level. The success of this film is a welcome one to the entertainment industry, which had seen a less-than-stellar start to the summer at the box office. It is also a welcome one to Pixar. It has been seeking to regain its footing at the box office since the pandemic.

Inside Out 2 continues the story of the emotions inside of a little girl named Riley’s head. However, Riley isn’t so little anymore. Now she is a teenager who is facing a bigger world with new situations. With these new things come new emotions. This includes Anxiety (Maya Hawke), Envy (Ayo Edebiri), Ennui (Adèle Exarchopoulos), Embarrassment (Paul Walter Hauser), and Nostalgia (June Squibb). They join returning characters Joy (Amy Pohler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Disgust (Liza Lapira), Fear (Tony Hale), and Anger (Lewis Black). It is directed by Kelsey Mann.
