After two weekends of release, “Inside Out 2” has become the highest-grossing movie of the year.

Disney and Pixar’s sequel has grossed $355 million in North America and $724 million globally to date, overtaking the previous record holder, “Dune: Part Two” ($282 million domestically and $711 million worldwide).

Internationally, the “Inside Out” sequel collected $164.4 million from 44 territories in its second outing.

It has earned $369.2 million overseas to stand as the year’s third-biggest international release behind “Godzilla x Kong” ($371 million) and “Dune Part 2” ($429 million). Top earning markets include Mexico ($63.9 million), the United Kingdom ($29.2 million), Korea ($29 million), Germany ($17.9 million) and Brazil ($17.3 million). It opens in its final major market, Japan, on August 1.

The PG-rated “Inside Out 2,” which cost $200 million to produce, is also lifting Pixar out of its box office slump. Critics and audiences have been charmed by the sequel, so positive word of mouth has been a boon for ticket sales.

The second “Inside Out” has been popular in Imax, where it has grossed $32.2 million globally to date. It’s already the fourth-highest grossing animated title ever for Imax.

“Inside Out 2” faced a little competition from Universal and Illumination’s “Despicable Me 4,” which began its overseas run this weekend.

It collected $9.4 million from four smaller markets, including Australia ($4.6 million) and Argentina ($3.4 million). According to the studio, those ticket sales are pacing above “Minions: The Rise of Gru,” and the first three “Despicable Me” movies, all of which were box office winners. The fourth entry in the tested family comedy franchise is expected to score with audiences as well.

Elsewhere at the international box office, Sony’s “Bad Boys: Ride or Die” added $24.1 million from 66 markets. So far, the fourth installment in the Will Smith and Martin Lawrence-led comedy series has grossed $142.2 million overseas and $289.1 million globally. “Ride or Die” opened this weekend in China with $2.8 million.
