FOLLOW STORE 'Toy Story 4' Smashes Global Box Office Record for Animated Movie Sales

Despite poor performance in the US.

@HYPEBEAST

Toy Story 4 has broken the global box office record for an animated movie after it made $238m USD worldwide during its debut weekend.

The Disney Pixar movie — which released 24 years after the original — performed particularly well in the European and Latin American markets, yet slumped in China and failed to meet targets in the US. Toy Story 4 was predicted to make $140m USD in the US, yet managed just $118m USD.

Nine years ago, Toy Story 3 generated over $1bn USD in ticket sales worldwide — a first for an animated film. The film’s UK screening broke the record for ticket sales for an animated film, hitting $15m USD in the first three days. However, Toy Story 4 failed to smash higher box office predictions.

Despite the mixed sales figures, Toy Story 4 has managed to place as the fourth-biggest US opening for an animated movie, following the Incredibles 2, Finding Dory and Shrek the Third.
