Box Office Buzz: TS3 Breaks June/Pixar Record with $110M Take! [UPDATE]

Pixar continues its streak of #1 weekends with Toy Story 3, the studio’s 11th consecutive hit.

On Friday, the newly released three-quel made history with $41 million dollars: the biggest opening day ever for an animated film! Analysts put Saturday at $37 million and Sunday at $32 million for a weekend total of:

$109,000,000 $110,307,189

This phenomenal take sets the last three days apart as the highest grossing Pixar opening weekend by far! In fact, the studio’s previous high was held by The Incredibles at $71 million. Director Lee Unkrich also confirms that Toy Story 3 holds the biggest June opening of all time.

International numbers are also in! A handful of countries with similar opening weekends helped Toy Story 3 earn an estimated $44,800,000 at the foreign box office. Pixar’s latest should finish its worldwide rollout by September.

    Does anybody here want to see it on non-weekend day? Because usually, Pixar’s non-weekend numbers are huge, and that is very effecting to the final number and I had a feeling that it will end up like iron man 2. But, great word-of-mouth will help this.

  4. Last Anonymous: Don’t worry. Word of mouth helps. And the audiences absolutely loved it!

    Just came back from another viewing of Toy Story 3. 7:00 pm, Sunday night—theater packed. Some kids (about 10%), rest adults. Audience LOVED it—I can’t remember the last time an audience cheered and clapped throughout a film. It was obvious everyone was having a great time and LOVING it. Many people leaving the theater were commenting how much they couldn’t wait to see it again. This is good!

  6. I am counting down the hours until I get to see it! Wish I could of opening weekend!

  7. Get it? Box office BUZZ? Hahahahaha! That’s totally not funny!

    The Chicken Man – I’m sorry that you feel that way, but I must say, your attempt at sarcasm was “totally not funny.” You know what is funny, I’ve been using “Box Office Buzz” since Up or maybe even WALL•E. And although it’s punny, it serves its double purpose quite well.

    I like the “Buzz”, keep it going.

    While I love the record-setting number, I must point out that with inflation/3D, the attendance is about equal to that of ‘Finding Nemo’ ‘Toy Story 2’ and ‘The Incredibles’.

    My hope is ‘Toy Story 3’ will become the highest grossing animated film of all time (since people talk more about the numbers not-adjusted for inflation) and beat that pop candy flick ‘Shrek 2’, which stands at $441 million. That would also make it the 5th biggest for all movies.
    I think they can do it!

    Word of mouth is stellar, I expected it to be great, but OMG it redefined “Off the Charts.” Even if it gets Wall-E’s 3.5 weekend multiplier,which I guarantee it will not, that’s north of 380mil domestic. I see the weekend multiplier to be around 3.9-4.3 so I predict a final gross around 425mil to 468mil. But will it really surprise anybody if it gets close to Nemo’s 4.7 multiplier? The word of mouth from critics, fanboys, and most importantly, families and casual moviegoers is universal. TS3 made them laugh, cry, and it touched and moved them in many ways..

    Isn’t it sad that the Toy Story series finished? But its still great how Pixar planned the last movie. This movie went a little extreme to the PG side. It was scarier than Up. Like the ending before Andy’s house. So heartbraking and so special that seen. This movie needs to win so many awards.
