Toy Story 3 Triumphs, Jonah Hex Taps Out

by at . Comments

Well, finally the box office receipts were directly correlative to each film's quality this past weekend. Toy Story 3 set a few records with its $109 million opening, which is appropriate, as the film is quite stellar in many respects.

Welcome to Your New Home

The $109 million opening is Pixar's biggest, surpassing the $70.5 million start The Incredibles had six years prior. This also puts Toy Story 3 third in line behind Iron Man 2 and Alice in Wonderland for biggest opening of the year.

The Karate Kid slipped into a distant second place, with $29 million in ticket sales to end up with a two-week total of $106.2 million. Third place belonged to The A-Team, which raked in an additional $13.8 million, only a 46% drop, probably due to Father's Day (you know how dad likes his A-Team!)

Get Him to the Greek held in there at fourth, bringing in $6.2 million, adding up to a $48 million total so far. And in fifth place, Shrek Forever After, whose receipts were knocked down 65% by competition from Toy Story 3, saw an additional $5.5 million this week.

Honorable mention goes to Jonah Hex, which landed in 8th place with only $5.1 million in ticket sales, marking it as a tremendously dismal bomb, ranking lower than MacGruber, which only earned about 4 million in its opening weekend, but cost much less to produce than the Josh Brolin / Megan Fox sci-fi western.

Here's a look at the Top 5:

  1. Toy Story 3 - $109,000,000
  2. The Karate Kid - $29,000,000
  3. The A-Team - $13,775,000
  4. Get Him to the Greek - $6,117,120
  5. Shrek Forever After - $5,520,000
