Toy Story 4 tops the Weekend Box Office

As expected Disney and Pixar’s sequel Toy Story 4 took the top spot at the weekend box office. The animated feature generated an estimated $119 million at the domestic box office. Internationally the film also took in $120 million for a worldwide cume of $238 million over the weekend. The opening weekend was the best for the series and topped 2010’s Toy Story 3 by $8 million. That film went on to gross $415 million domestically and $1.06 billion worldwide.

The opening is also the third highest for a Pixar film behind 2016’s Finding Dory with $135 million and last year’s hugely anticipated The Incredibles 2 with an astounding $182 million.

Opening in the second spot was United Artist’s reboot of Child’s Play. The film had a soft $14 million domestic opening, however the film has already made back it’s budget so the film can already be deemed a success for United Artists.

Rounding out the top five was Disney’s live action Aladdin with another $12.2 million, Sony’s Men in Black International with an estimated $10.8 million, and Universal’s animated The Secret Life of Pets 2 with $10.3 million.

Lionsgate’s Anna also opened over the weekend but just missed the top ten, landing at #11 with $3.5 million.
