Now that Toy Story 4 is hitting cinemas we are finding out that the latest movie in the franchise has become the most successful in its opening weekend across the entire Toy Story franchise.
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the projections for Toy Story 4's opening weekend were much higher at $165 million, much less than the $118 million that it did in its opening weekend. If we compare this to Toy Story 3 from 2010 opening with $110.3 million, Toy Story 4 is performing quite well and is yet another win for both Pixar and Disney.
Pixar is no stranger to flying way above inifinty, and beyond with The Incredibles 2 pulling a huge $182.7 million in its opening weekend, Finding Dory with $135.1 million and is just behind Shrek the Third and its $121.6 million -- Toy Story 4 comes in just behind with $118 million. Toy Story 4 is also the third movie to open at over $100 million in 2019, behind Avengers: Endgame and Captain Marvel -- both Disney owned movies.
Toy Story 4 made around $120 million in international box office over the opening weekend, with a total of $238 million in just 72 hours. I haven't seen the movie yet, but plan to in a few days... I feel like a big kid inside and can't wait for it, I'm sure I'll shed a tear or 4.
