What happens when you have the number one movie in America, break records and claim hundreds of rave reviews?
For Toy Story 3, you keep making it big into the weekday! After all, it’s Summer, where everyday is the weekend for youth out on vacation — and that’s why Lee Unkrich’s latest is guaranteed to continue raking in the cash.
We’ll be updating this post daily as box-office reports come in. Keep checking back!
Today’s Cumulative Domestic Box Office: $167,551,682
Notes and Predictions: By Thursday we should see an addition of around $60 million to this past weekend’s total. In any case, Toy Story 3 will surely become the fastest Pixar film to cross the $162 million domestic gross of A Bug’s Life. Next weekend should put Toy Story 3 past its 1995 counterpart ($191M) and possibly past Ratatouille‘s $206 million domestic total. As with any predictions, this can only come true if you guys buy tickets!
Critic’s Corner: Another ‘Rotten’ review (now three in total) has dropped Toy Story 3’s Tomatometer to 98% ‘Fresh’ approval rating — still excellent. Oh, and if you were wondering how many positive reviews there are, Rotten Tomatoes has counted 170 as of this post! The film’s Metascore is currently at 91.
