Terminator Genisys

Despite competition from Terminators and male strippers, Jurassic World took the box office for 4th of July weekend.

The film earned $30.9 million in its fourth weekend, bringing its domestic total to $558.1 million.

Disney and Pixar's animated Inside Out landed in second with $30.1 million, which has now earned $246.1 million in three weekends; and Ted 2 closed out the top 5 with $11 million and $58.3 million in two weekends.

The weekend's new films, Terminator Genisys and Magic Mike XXL, opened in the third and fourth spots, respectively, with $28.7 million and $11.6 million.

Genisys failed to perform better than the previous Terminator film, the Schwarzenegger-less Salvation, which debuted with $65.3 million over Memorial Day weekend in 2009. Genisys did better overseas, earning $74 million internationally over the weekend.

Magic Mike XXL, however, fell below expectation. The original debuted with $39.1 million.

That's a wrap for this weekend. This upcoming week, look out for the release of the New Line horror film The Gallows, the animated Minions and the Ryan Reynolds sci-fi Self/Less.

This weekend's top 10 is as follows:

1. "Jurassic World," $30.9 million ($42 million international).
