Monday Morning Box Office Report: Toy Story 4 Tops Franchise But Fails to Break Animated Record

Disney pulled off yet another victory over the weekend as Toy Story 4 opened to $118 million, the highest debut yet for the series (Toy Story 3 made $110 million back in 2010). That being said, there is still an air of disappointment surrounding the situation as the movie was expected to make closer to $140 million and possibly even break the Incredibles 2 animated record of $182 million. Given the critical acclaim, however, it will probably continue to make money throughout most of the summer. In second place, the Child’s Play reboot made a mediocre $14 million, which is less than Escape Room and Ma made but more than The Intruder and Happy Death Day 2U… just to put things in perspective. It’s probably still to early to tell if we’ll be getting more sequels. Elsewhere Disney’s Aladdin continued to hold in third place with $12 million while Men in Black International and The Secret Life of Pets 2 rounded out the top 5.

1. Toy Story 4 — $118M
2. Child’s Play — $14.1M
3. Aladdin — $12.2M
4. Men in Black: International — $10.8M
5. The Secret Life of Pets 2 — $10.3M
6. Rocketman — $5.7M
7. John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum — $4.1M
8. Godzilla: King of the Monsters — $3.7M
9. Dark Phoenix — $3.6M
10. Shaft — $3.6M

    Yikes, Luc Besson’s Anna didn’t even crack the top 10. Not good for his company EuropaCorp. They were in need of a hit. Last I heard they were on the verge of bankruptcy after Valerian didn’t do that well. I actually recall seeing a fair bit of advertising for it too.

    Pretty excited for Child’s Play 2019 but I think it’s fakakta to release it during the summer.

    I checked it out and gotta say was not a fan. I’m not opposed to changes with remakes but they changed a lot with this one and I think a lot of the changes they made were for the worse. I’m hoping the guys get a chance to check it out and would love to see a premium for the original franchise.
