LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Disney continued its successful run at the box office this weekend with Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” which took in an estimated $118.0 million in North America, and $120.0 million internationally for a $238.00 million worldwide debut, according to estimates compiled by Comscore.
The film, which features Tom Hanks and Tim Allen reprising iconic roles as Woody and Buzz Lightyear was the latest entry in a franchise that was first introduced more than 20 years ago. The most recent entry, Toy Story 3, was released in 2010, earning an estimated $1bn at the box office when all was said and done.
Other films opening this week included United Artist’s Child Play, a comedy-horror retread of the hoary franchise, which tells the story of a malevolent animated doll and the various hapless victims it kills. The remake featured Gabriel Bateman, Aubrey Plaza, and Brian Tyree Henry, with Mark Hamill as the voice of Chucky and generated an estimated $14.05 million on its opening weekend.
Last week’s top box office champ “Men In Black International” earned an estimated $10.75 million in North America and $30m from 23,000+ screens in 65 markets worldwide, Comscore reported.
Disney’s PG-rated “Aladdin,” now in its fifth weekend, also continued to chug along, earning an estimated $12.2 million in North America through Sunday, and $32.9M from international markets.
