I'm actually a bit surprised here.

Inside Out is a big worldwide hit, but Minions, a spin off of the Despicalbe Me tent-poles, has rocketed past it.

You will note that the Chinese animated morsel Monster Hunt has now hit $312 million overseas on $0 domestically, since it hasn't been released n the U.S and/or Canada. Meanwhile:

... Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation grossed an additional $65.5M in its sophomore session to bring the offshore cume to $156.7M. The global total through Sunday is $265.3M. ...

Minions added $18.2M this frame in 62 territories as the henchmen beat Despicable Me 2’s international gross with $609.8M to date. This makes the origins story the 5th biggest animated film of all time at the offshore box office. It also becomes Illumination Entertainment’s best overseas take to date. ...

Jurassic World added $15.1M this frame to take the international tally to $945.6M. That makes it the 5th biggest grosser of all time internationally. ... Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out has now crossed $300M overseas with a cume to date of $300.1M. With domestic included, the Pete Docter charmer is at $635.5M. The weekend was worth $10.8M internationally, in 53 territories which is 74% of the footprint. ...

Animation, it does well.

Add On: Monster Hunt, per Deadline, keeps rolling along in the Middle Kingdom:

... MH has been on a tear, steadily rounding up records during its 25-day run thus far. Rentrak puts Monster Hunt‘s cume as of Sunday at $328.4M locally which shoots it past Transformers: Age Of Extinction ($318.78M) to become the No. 2 movie ever at the Chinese box office.

The Global Times reports that Monster Hunt‘s official Sina Weibo account said it had earned 2B yuan ($322M) as of Saturday night. The only other film ever to cross 2B is Furious 7 with 2.43B.
