It was a big weekend at the box office as Jurassic World and Inside Out each broke records of their own. In just 13 days, Jurassic World became the fastest film ever to pass the $1 billion mark – beating out Furious 7’s previous 17 day record. Pixar’s Inside Out opened to a staggering $91.1, giving it the highest-grossing opening ever for an original Pixar film and the second best of any Pixar film behind Toy Story 3. It also claims ownership of the top opening for any original movie as well as the biggest opening weekend not at #1. Oof – and we bet there is a lot more where that came from. (Deadline)
