Box Office Buzz: Highest Grossing Animated Film of All Time!

As of today, Toy Story 3 has become the highest grossing animated film of all time!

We’ve been tracking the movie’s box-office success since its debut on June 18th, 2010, and boy, am I glad to finally get to say those words. Pixar’s 11th was able to claim this accolade after Disney reported that it had crossed $920 million dollars worldwide.

Domestically, Toy Story 3 hit is set to pass the $400 million dollar mark sometime this weekend. The film got off to a phenomenal start with the biggest opening day for an animated feature (at $41 million) and is now Pixar’s highest grossing film of all time in North America as well as around the globe.

A big congratulations goes out to Lee Unkrich and his amazing team at Pixar! From now on, please look out for box office updates on our official Twitter feed.

I guess Friday the 13th isn’t that unlucky after all? Next stop, one billion dollars!

  2. PRO!! So the Shrek 2 record that everyone said/says it won’t beat, I’m guessing that’s worldwide highest animated movie of all time?

    YouUnculturedSwine — Right now the highest grossing animated movie of all time worldwide is Toy Story 3. It was Shrek 2, but I think everyone was saying it won’t beat it in domestic totals, which, it won’t be able to at this point.

    Thoroughly deserved and it’s hard to see anything ever eclipsing it.

    Shrek 2 had the record and did not even win an Oscar.

    Toy Story 3 has set many records, and we all know that it will win the ACADEMY AWARD!

    Question is, in what categories? Does anyone think that it has the potential to be nominated for ‘best picture’? because so far, it is actually heading that way, and for the win! ( :D) Yeah!

    940mil Worldwide and counting. 1bil is in the bag, and it’ll be the first animated film to join that exclusive club which includes Avatar, Titanic, Dead Man’s Chest, Return of the King, The Dark Knight, and Alice in Wonderland (2010).

    I’m not sure it will make $1B although it will come VERY close. I’ve done some estimates (on top of the current tally of $940.5M) which suggest it will be a very close call.

    The last remaining market to open is Scandinavia. That region did exactly $20M for UP (OK, $20,003,204) and given that TS3 is consistently 35-45% greater, that suggests this market will add another $28-29M to the tally. This puts the tally at $969M.

    Assuming TS3 is currently at 97% of its final domestic total (a reliable estimate at 2 months of release) then it’s domestic tally will get to around $412M. So that’s another $11M for the estimate which gives $980M.

    If the foreign markets can generate another $20M on top of these estimates then TS3 will just get over the line. Here’s hoping.

    1billion is in the bag. Even if Scandinavia only combines for 20mil and domestically it bags only 10mil more from here, The UK and Japan are good for another 25mil each from here to the end of its run.
