Jurassic World took in $11.57 million on Monday to continue to lead the daily box office. The Chris Pratt led 3D blockbuster sequel from Universal and Legendary has topped the daily box office for ten of the past eleven days. Jurassic World was down a sharp, but understandable 70 percent from Sunday's inflated Father's Day performance and down 54 percent from last Monday. Jurassic World has grossed a massive $414.37 million through eleven days of release. Without adjusting for ticket price inflation that already ranks the film as the 15th highest grossing film of all-time domestically. And by the end of today the film will likely have moved into eleventh place on the all-time list. Jurassic World is currently running $33.38 million and 9 percent ahead of the $380.99 million eleven-day take of 2012's Marvel's The Avengers.
Inside Out placed in a close second with a strong $10.49 million. The critically acclaimed 3D computer animated film from Disney and Pixar declined 58 percent from Sunday. Inside Out surpassed the $100 million domestic milestone on Monday and has grossed a much stronger than expected $100.93 million in four days. Inside Out is the second fastest Pixar film ever to reach the $100 million milestone, behind only 2010's Toy Story 3 (which reached the milestone in three days). Inside Out is running an impressive 8 percent ahead of the $93.45 million four-day start of 2013's Monsters University and 20 percent behind the $125.91 million four-day take of Toy Story 3.
Fox's Spy took third place with $1.26 million. The Melissa McCarthy led comedy fell 66 percent from Sunday and a healthy 28 percent from last Monday. Spy continues to stabilize as of late thanks in part to strong word of mouth. The film has grossed a respectable $76.36 million in 18 days. However, that places the film an underwhelming 19 percent behind the $94.55 million 18-day gross of 2013's Identity Thief.
Warner's San Andreas landed in fourth with $0.958 million. The Dwayne Johnson led 3D disaster film was down a sharp 70.5 percent from Sunday, but only down a slim 17 percent from last Monday thanks in part to just how much the film stabilized over the past weekend. San Andreas continues to significantly exceed pre-release expectations with a 25-day take of $133.65 million.
Open Road's Dope rounded out Monday's top five with $0.788 million. The critically acclaimed Rick Famuyiwa directed comedy drama declined 53 percent from Sunday. Despite its strong critical reviews, Dope is running slightly below its already modest expectations with a four-day start of $6.89 million. That places the film 5 percent ahead of the $6.54 million four-day take of last year's Beyond the Lights. Dope will hope to hold up well going forward with help from its strong word of mouth and reviews.
