About Inside Out 2

Inside Out 2 is a sequel to the 2015 hit about the inner workings of a young girl's mind. In the second instalment, the lead character, Riley, has become a teenager and is grappling with new emotions, including anxiety and envy. The original Inside Out opened with about $90 million in its first weekend in the summer of 2015.

Inside Out 2 worldwide box office

As per Reuters, Inside Out 2 has already crossed $500 million at the worldwide box office. The movie had previously generated about $155 million in US and Canadian ticket sales over its first weekend, according to estimates. The last two Pixar releases, Elemental and Lightyear had mediocre ticket sales. Three prior Pixar films were sent straight to streaming during the Covid-19.

The results of Inside Out 2 could prove to be a boost for theatre owners, who have fewer movies to show this year because of delays caused by strikes in Hollywood last year.

Speaking to Bloomberg, Disney’s executive vice president for theatrical distribution, Tony Chambers, said, “If it was ever in doubt, people continue and are still willing to go to the cinema to see great movies, and with 92% critics and 96 percent audience scores on Rotten Tomatoes, there’s no better example of this than Inside Out 2.”
