Record $109 million weekend for ‘Toy Story 3’

HollywoodNews.com:

“Toy Story 3” is vying for the best opening of all-time among June releases. The Disney/Pixar film pulled in $109 million, posting the second-highest first weekend for an animated film behind 2007’s “Shrek the Third,” which made over $121 million.

If Disney’s actual reported figures on Monday exceed their estimates, than “Toy Story 3” will beat last June’s “Transformers: The Revenge of the Fallen” as the highest opening for the month. “Tranformers 2” finaled its 3-day tally at $108.96 million.

While Memorial Day weekend and the first Friday-Sunday in June saw slow ticket sales, particularly for a summer season, it appears business is back to normal since Sony’s release of “The Karate Kid” last weekend.

The second wide release to chart in the top 10 this weekend was Warner Bros.’ “Jonah Hex” which bombed in eighth with $5.1 million. The film reportedly cost $65 million and will be lucky to break-even at the domestic box office.
