Toy Story 3 Replaces Finding Nemo As Pixar's Highest Grossing Film
As great as every Pixar movie has been since its release, Finding Nemo has held the title of "Biggest Box Office Success" for the animation company since it was released in 2003. Even more impressive? No other film has come close. Raking in nearly $868 million during its run, the only other film in Pixar's stable to approach it was Up, which made $731 million. Until now.
According to Box Office Mojo, Toy Story 3 has now made $896,218,546 worldwide, making it Pixar's new number one. Of the gross, only 44.4% came from domestic sales, with the foreign box office picking up the slack. The film stayed at the top of the chart for only two weeks after it's release in the US, losing to both Twilight: Eclipse and The Last Airbender in its third week, but was number one abroad until Inception knocked it to number it to number two during the first week of August. The film is currently ranked as the 14th highest grossing film of all time worldwide.
Despite being called the best film of the year by many critics and fans, it's somewhat disturbing that the film isn't the number one box office hit this year. What is? The entirely forgettable Alice In Wonderland, which is currently ranked as the fifth highest grossing film of all-time worldwide. I'll let you think about that for the rest of the day.
