“Big Hero 6” blew up at the box office.

Disney’s animated adventure “Big Hero 6,” featuring the inflatable robot Baymax and his prodigy pal Hiro from the Marvel comic book of the same name, debuted in first place with $56.2 million.

Paramount’s space-time saga “Interstellar,” starring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway as astronauts in search of a new home from humankind, launched in second place with $47.5 million.

“Interstellar” fell short of a $50 million debut, which would’ve marked the fourth time in box office history that a pair of films both opened with $50 million or above.

The previous matchups were “Monsters University” vs. “World War Z” in 2013, “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” vs. “Prometheus” in 2012, and “WALL-E” vs. “Wanted” in 2008.

In each instance, the animated film came out on top.
