Jurassic World holds off Inside Out to continue box office domination
Jurassic World continues to dominant the US box office with another monster weekend.
In the US, the new blockbuster, which stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Jake Johnson, saw off competition from Pixar's new comedy Inside Out to stay at Number One in the box office and took over $102 million in the process.
Jurassic World has only been in cinemas for 10 days, but is already the third highest grossing movie of the year and the 23rd highest grossing film of all time with a box office taking that currently stands at just over $980 million.
Jurassic World has been directed by Colin Trevorrow and also stars Judy Greer, Ty Simpkins and Omar Sy. The movie is the first film to emerge from the Jurassic Park franchise since 2001 and acts as a direct sequel to the earlier movie trilogy.
It follows Pratt's Owen, a park ranger who tries to lead a rescue mission for tourists trapped in the revamped theme park after Rex, a monstrous genetically-modified dinosaur, goes on the rampage.
