After reporting an amazing $41M box office on its opening day, Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 has gone on to take in a reported box office opening weekend estimate of $109 million, crushing Pixar’s previous record of $70.4 million set by The Incredibles in 2004. When considering inflation, The Incredibles barely passed the $100 million mark within its first week whereas Toy Story 3 has already surpassed that number (~$106M) in just a few days.
When compared to other all other movies, it had the #1 opening day for an animated film and with its weekend box office totals reported, it’s currently ranked as #45 out of all animated films and certainly rising. It’s also #1 for opening weekends for G-rated films (#3 when you consider PG as well and #10 with all film ratings considered) and the highest June opening for all films, well on track to be the #1 for all of June, a title currently held by Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen.
Toy Story 3 marks Pixar’s eleventh film and its eleventh #1 film on opening weekend.
