New premieres have got nothing on the big summer films of last week.

Jurassic World and Inside Out continue to rule the box office ranks, with both films earning over $30 million each during the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

Including the five days into the holiday weekend count, Inside Out inches out with the top spot — $45.3 million to Jurassic World‘s $43.8 million — but all in all, it’s fair to say that each film had a stellar holiday.

World‘s international total is now $826.9 billion, which, along with its domestic total makes it the fifth highest grossing film of all time in the worldwide landscape. Overall, the film now has $1.385 billion to its name.

Opening to lukewarm reception this weekend was Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, which only brought in $44.1 million for the five day holiday span, but the film might be saved by the international box offices. Overseas, the Schwarzenegger-fronted flick took in $85 million internationally. The pressure is now on for the franchise, which has two more Terminator films baking away, and slated for release in 2016 and 2017.

Meanwhile, Magic Mike XXL had a great weekend. The low-budget film, which opened to a predictably high female audience (96%!) made out with $12.04 million over the two day weekend, and $27.07 over the five day holiday span.
