Toy Story 3 Tops 2010 Best Movies

by at . Comments

Fifteen years after the original Toy Story made its way onto the big screen, Toy Story 3 is bringing in the gold for the beloved franchise. Not only was Toy Story 3 the highest grossing movie of 2010, meaning audiences loved it; it was also the highest rated film of 2010, meaning critics loved it, too.  

Put the two together and you've got one heck of a success story for Pixar. It even topped Quentin Tarantino's list!

How Did You Get Up There?

Toy Story 3 topped the yearly box office numbers with $1.06 billion dollars in total tickets sales, surpassing others like Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland ($1.02 billion), and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 ($831 million), although the latter has only been in theaters for six weeks.

In addition to earning the number-one spot at box office with the highest number of ticket sales, it also topped the critics list of best movies of the year. According to review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes, Toy Story 3 earned a nearly perfect 99% rating.  

So it's the most successful film, according to critics and movie-goers, but could it receive the ultimate award season honor and beat out the nine other films vying for Oscar gold? We'll find out in March.
