Disney’s Inside Out 2 has become the highest-grossing title 2024 so far at the UK and Ireland box office, after hitting £40m in four weeks.

The animated sequel added another £5.1m, down just 15% on the previous session. Inside Out 2 overtakes Warner Bros’ Dune: Part Two on £39.4m as well as its own predecessor, 2015’s Inside Out, which also ended on £39.4m. 

It still has some way to go to match 2023’s big hitters, including fellow animated title Super Mario Bros: The Movie which scored £55m for Universal. 

Paramount’s A Quiet Place: Day One clung on to second place in its second weekend, dropping only 34% to bring in £1.6m. The horror prequel now stands at £6.2m and is halfway to matching that of its predecessors A Quiet Place (2018, £12.1m) and A Quiet Place: Part II (£11.6m).

On its fifth session, Bad Boys: Ride Or Die parked another £446,578 for Sony. The buddy cop feature starring Will Smith is now up to £11.1m.

Universal horror MaXXXine debuted at number four in the box office charts with £384,410. Ti West’s third edition in the Mia Goth-starring trilogy opened in 477 cinemas making for a £806 location average. It is however the highest opening of the trilogy, ahead of 2022’s X (£277,493) and 2023’s Pearl (£192,895). 

The third feature sees Goth return as her original X character, setting her sights on 1980s Hollywood while an infamous serial killer terrorises the town. Elizabeth Debicki, Kevin Bacon, Lily Collins and musician Halsey also star.

In fifth place was fellow Universal title The Bikeriders, down just 37% in its third weekend with £373,027. The Jeff Nichols feature starring Austin Butler, Jodie Comer and Tom Hardy has now made £3.2m.
