The total through day one overseas is $4.9M. Majors joining through Friday include Australia, Mexico and the UK.

On Wednesday, the Kelsey Mann-directed sequel grossed $1.5M in the Philippines for the 3rd biggest opening day of all time, only behind Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War. The start, falling on Independence Day in the market, was 7x higher than the original Inside Out and over 22x above Kung Fu Panda 4.

IO2 scored the biggest opening day ever for a Pixar title in Korea with an estimated $1.4M. This is 267% above the launch of the first Inside Out, 144% ahead of The Super Mario Bros Movie and 33% over Minions: The Rise of Gru. The Korea total through Thursday (not reflected in the overall cume above) is an estimated $2.35M.

Early social and audience scores are terrific in Korea with Naver: 9.20/CGV: 97% — those are higher than Inside Out, Kung Fu Panda 4 and Rise of Gru. The CGV score is just one percentage point behind that of Elemental.
