The fourth entry in the Pixar animation series raised $ 118 million in ticket sales when it was expelled in 4,575 North American theaters. While this draw is much lower than expected, which was expected to start near $ 140 million, it is little disappointment for the highly commended film.
Despite brightness reviews, the mailbox officers recommend that “Toy Story 4” was underperformed as viewers were concerned about the need for another chapter after making the series “Toy Story 3” so fine. The home start is not just a bit because of that entry, which focused almost a decade ago with $ 110 million. However, it is likely that a strong word “Toy Story 4” in long theaters will keep in the summer.
“Toy Story 4” is the fourth largest launch for animated films behind “Incredibles 2” ($ 182 million), “Finding Dory” ($ 135 million), and “Shrek the Third” ($ 121 million). . It's only a third film this year to $ 100 million to cross receipts during its open weekend. The other two – “Captain Marvel” and “Avengers: Endgame” – were also Disney releases.
Toy Story 4 attracted $ 120 million from 37 international territories to get a global start of $ 238 million.
Woody (Tomás Hanks), Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) and Bo Peep (Annie Potts) are led by Josh Cooley, “Toy Story 4” with a band of plastic heroes. Forky, a worry-ridden spork, is expressed by Tony Hale, who helps them to be a toy to teach them. Rashida Jones, Will McCormack, Valerie LaPointe, Martin Hynes, and Pixar chief executive, John Lasseter, wrote the story.
In a very long run, “United Plays” earned the United artists $ 14 million when it opened in 3,007 venues. This is a strong start to the moderately budgeted horror film, which recreates the thriller 1988 under the evil of Chucky. Aubrey Plaza solves in “Play Child”, which Mark Hamill mentions the creepy voodoo doll. It cost to produce $ 10 million.
The other new release was not on this weekend as well. “Anna” was launched with Liongate with $ 3.5 million from 2,114 screens. Male and 61% of ticket buyers equate to 88% of that group over 25 years of age. Sasha Luss, Luke Evans and Helen Mirren star.
There is another atmosphere, “Aladdin” with Disney falling far behind “Child's Play” on the box office charts. ”The live-action music released $ 12 million on the fifth weekend was released, adding to $ 288 million.
Fourth, Sony's “Men in Black: International” made $ 10 million during its second weekend in theaters, marking a sharp 65% reduction on its first run. The fourth film is “MIB”, starring Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, who has created $ 52 million to date.
The top five are the “Secret Life of Pets 2,” which added $ 10.2 million to their North American scores. The animated sequence has made $ 117 million concentrated since three weeks ago.
Overall, the speed of ticket sales is emerging well behind last year's strong season. As the large budget sequences such as “Dark Phoenix,” “Men in Black: International” and “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” follow, there are disappointing receipts back at the box office, according to Comscore.
