Theatrical giant AMC Entertainment posted its highest attendance and admissions revenue of any weekend in 2024 this past Fri-Sun. at locations in the U.S. and globally with the one-two punch of Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out 2 debut, and Sony’s Bad Boys: Ride Or Die.

Total U.S. attendance was bout 3.8 million over the weekend, Thursday through Sunday.

Internationally, attendance was up by double digit percentages compared to the same weekend last year.

The exhibitor said the stats are due to “the jaw-dropping opening weekend success of INSIDE OUT 2, which is reported to have opened to more than $150 million across the industry domestically. Also providing a key attendance lift was the continued performance of BAD BOYS: RIDE OR DIE, which saw a strong hold in its second weekend with a media-reported $33 million at the domestic industry box office.”

Inside Out 2 had the biggest animated openings since Pixar’s Incredibles 2.

“Once again, the moviegoing public has demonstrated that the magic of the movies and the theatrical experience is alive and powerful. While at first glance INSIDE OUT 2 and BAD BOYS: RIDE OR DIE appear to be very different films, they share a strong crossover in that they both were made specifically for the big screen and expertly marketed to a theatrical moviegoing audience. The results of those efforts were in full force this weekend,” said AMC CEO Adam Aron.

“We extend our gratitude to the filmmakers of INSIDE OUT 2 and BAD BOYS: RIDE OR DIE, and to our studio partners at Disney and Sony Pictures for delivering these incredible films to moviegoing audiences. Most of all, we thank our guests for choosing to see these wonderful movies on the huge screens, with terrific sound, and in ever so comfortable seats featured by AMC.”

AMC has 900 theaters and 10,000 screens globally.
