Toy Story 4 breaks global box office records

Lagging behind "Toy Story 4" were "Child's Play" ($14.1 million), "Aladdin" ($12.2 million), "Men in Black: International" ($10.8 million) and "The Secret Life of Pets 2" ($10.3 million).

Many enthusiastic predictions figured Toy Story 4 would overtake the Incredibles sequel's $182 million American box office bow, but so far it seems the ticket sales are still moving slowly even though the Josh Cooley-directed film now has a 98 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

It wasn't just the Irish audience who were impressed with the fourth instalment following Buzz Lightyear, Woody and friends as the new Toy Story achieved critical acclaim with a 98pc certification on review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes.

The other two films to reach the box office milestone were also Disney films: Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame. It rates 98% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.

Cathleen Taff, distribution chief for Disney, said the company was thrilled with the opening and praised Pixar's high standards.

In fourth place is Sony's "Men in Black: International" at $10.8 million, down 64% from last weekend's opening. "Their process of sort of going through the rigour of making sure that this is a story people want told, the end result speaks for itself".

Luc Besson's assassin thriller Anna missed out on the top 10 entirely, opening with a mere $3.5 million in 2,114 theatres. The animated sequel has grossed $117 million since debuting three weeks ago, but opened at $46.6. million, less than half of the first film's opening in 2016. Instead, the weekend was down 27.2 percent from the same frame a year ago.

Overseas, "Toy Story 4" picked up $120 million from 37 worldwide territories for a global start of $238 million.

"The numbers being bandied about out there pre-weekend were certainly much higher than the number that it came in with", said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for Comscore.

The Disney and Pixar film raked in £13.3 million for its opening weekend in the United Kingdom and Ireland, pushing it to take the record for the biggest ever three day opening weekend for an animation.
