Seth MacFarlane’s R-rated comedy “Ted 2” failed to dethrone ‘Jurassic World’ in the battle of the sequels at the box office. “Jurassic World” is still king with approximately $54.2 million in its third week at the top of the food chain. The dinosaur film becomes the fifth film to earn $500 million domestically, right behind “The Dark Knight” which grossed $534.8 million. Other movies which successfully grossed more than $500 million domestically were “The Avengers” ($623.4 million), “Titanic” ($658.7 million) and “Avatar” ($760.5 million).

“Ted 2” only managed to rake in $32.9 million in third place at the box office. The sequel failed to match the success of its predecessor which stacked up an impressive $54.4 million in the summer of 2012. Overseas, the comedy opened to an estimated $20.3 million for a global launch of $53.2 million. The first release took over $330 million internationally, so it seems unlikely that the sequel will live up to these figure.

Pixar’s “Inside Out (2015)” was once again ousted by Universal’s “Jurassic World”, but managed to put up a brave fight in second place for a second consecutive week. The animated flick did very well by taking approximately $52.1 million from 4,132 domestic theaters with a global total of $184.9 million. Military dog movie “Max (2015)” which follows the story of dog who develops a relationship with his dead handler’s brother stood proudly in its debut weekend with $12.2 million from 2,855 theaters in fourth place. Fox’s “Spy” rounds out the top five this week with $7.8 million.
