Ant-Man remained the king of the box office this weekend, managing to edge out the newly released Adam Sandler video game comedy Pixels.
The Marvel Studios release earned a reported $24.8 million in domestic ticket sales this weekend, just ahead of the $24 million reported for the critically ravaged Pixels. Ant-Man has earned after two weekends in domestic release a gross of $106 million. Its foreign take of $120 million gives it $226 million worldwide total gross.
Holding up well in third place is Illumination and Universal’s animated feature Minions, which sold $22 million in tickets in its third weekend of domestic release. That brings the little yellow dudes’ domestic total to $262 million, and with $498 million in foreign ticket sales, is a solid success with a $759 million worldwide total.
In seventh place is Disney and Pixar’s animated Inside Out, with $7.4 million in domestic tickets sales its sixth weekend in release. The movie has a $320 million domestic total and $230 million foreign for a $550 million worldwide gross.
Jurassic World still is adding to its considerable totals, with $6.9 million in domestic ticket sales in its seventh weekend of release. That tops off its total at $624 million domestic and $918 million foreign for $1.54 billion worldwide. Its grip is now solid on the No. 3 ranking for all time worldwide box office grosses.
More disappointing is Terminator Genisys, which landed in tenth place at the weekend domestic box office with $2.4 million in ticket sales. It’s earned $86 million domestic and $219 million foreign for a $305 million worldwide gross.
