Jurassic World went head to head with Pixar's newest offering Inside Out with solid results for both films.

Inside Out gave last weekend's number one blockbuster smash a run for its money, but came in a strong second place, banking $91 million. That's the second highest opening for a Pixar movie, but a somewhat disappointing debut given that it's the only Pixar release to not bow in at the number one spot.

Jurassic World added $102 million this weekend, just missing the $400 million mark for domestic sales. The movie has been battling the financial performance of 2012's The Avengers from the start. World barely topped Avenger's opening weekend by less than $2 million but has shown stronger staying power, beating it out to become the fastest movie to hit $250 million and $350 million.

Writer/director Rick Famuyiwa's latest offering Dope opened in a quiet fifth place with $6 million. That's the lowest opening for Famuyiwa, but only a little less than his highest opening of $10 million for Brown Sugar in 2002. Still, $6 million is nothing to sneeze at for a movie up against the likes of Pixar and the Jurassic Park franchise.
