Disney’s Inside Out 2 stirred up plenty of emotions at the UK and Ireland box office this weekend after its £11.3m debut made it the biggest opening of the year so far and the third-highest of all time for an animated feature.

The Pixar sequel opened in 684 sites, for an impressive £16,520 location average. It is ahead of 2024’s previous highest opener Dune: Part Two, which debuted with £9.3m, and is the biggest opening since Barbie’s £18.5m. 

It also surpassed the 2015 original which opened on £7.4m and is the best opening weekend for an animated title since 2019’s Toy Story 4, which scored £13.3m. The film was just behind 2010’s Toy Story 3 (£11.5m) but did beat out 2018’s Incredibles 2 (£9.6m) and 2016’s Finding Dory (£7.6m).

Inside Out 2 sees emotions Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust return to guide lead character Riley through puberty with the help of some new emotions Anxiety and Ennui. Directed by Kelsey Mann, the voice cast includes Amy Poehler, Kyle McLachlan, Maya Hawke, Adèle Exarchopoulos and Tony Hale.

Next in line was Bad Boys: Ride Or Die, dropping just 34% in its second weekend to rev up another £1.9m for Sony. The fourth instalment in the buddy cop franchise now sits at £7.1m, surpassing the lifetime total of Bad Boys (£5.1m) and closing in on Bad Boys II (£8.7m). It still has a way to go to match that of Bad Boys For Life which finished on £15.7m in March 2020.

In third place was Paramount’s IF which scored £414,673 in its fifth outing to bring its total up to £11.4m.

Disney’s Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes hit £15m in its sixth weekend after seeing in another £389,000.

In fifth place, Sony animation The Garfield Movie added another £354,829 in its fourth weekend to bring its total up to £7.9m.

Sitting outside of the top five for the first time was Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga. The Warner Bros title tipped over the £6m mark in its fourth weekend after adding £234,000. 

In its second weekend, fellow Warner Bros’ title The Watched dropped 54% to lure in £177,000. The M. Night Shyamalan-produced horror has a total of £808,000.
