"Toy Story 4" continues to lead North American weekend box office

Toy Story 4 Remains #1 at the Box Office Avengers Can't Catch Avatar

Toy Story 4 had another huge weekend at the box office! Aladdin remains the #3 film worldwide for 2019 (behind Avengers: Endgame and Captain Marvel), and is nearly assuredly the surprise hit of the summer.

Lagging far behind the Pixar release is the second placed Annabelle Comes Home, from New Line.

"Annabelle Comes Home", the triquel in the horror franchise which is part of "The Conjuring" universe, came in second place at the domestic box office with $31.2 million, since its opening on Wednesday ($20.3 million over the weekend). Still, lower budgets mean the films don't suffer too much from reduced returns, and a third entry of the main Conjuring movies is already in production. Gary Dauberman wrote and directed "Annabelle Comes Home", which stars Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga and Mckenna Grace.

Deutsche Bank passes U.S. stress test in surprise Fed decision
The dispute has prompted the Federal Reserve to say it is willing to cut interest rates if the dispute hurts the USA economy. Capital One fell short after the Fed projected steeper losses on credit-card portfolios in a severely stressed scenario.

That left slim pickings for Yesterday, which had mixed reviews and had to make do with $17 million on its Stateside launch. The romantic comedy follows an aspiring songwriter who, after a freak accident, discovers he is the only person who remembers the Beatles. Rights to the catalog of John, Paul, George and Ringo's greatest hits doesn't come cheap, so Universal is hoping "Yesterday" has a long and winding road in theaters.

"Aladdin" continues to show strength in its sixth week of release, capturing the #4 spot with a $9.3 million domestic gross, contributing to a six-week domestic total of $305.8 million and a worldwide total to date of $568 million. The animated sequel has now earned 131 million USA dollars in North America.

Rounding out the top five is Universal and Illumination's "The Secret Life of Pets 2" with $7 million. That brings its box office receipts to $841 million in North America and $2.76 billion worldwide. But, that's below the second-weekend performances of previous big Pixar sequels like "Incredibles 2" ($80.3 million), "Finding Dory" ($72.9 million), and "Toy Story 3" ($59.3 million).
