Toy Story 3 overtakes Titanic in all-time UK box office

It has left audiences in tears but Disney bosses were celebrating today as Toy Story 3 sailed past Titanic in the all-time UK box office league.

The animated film starring Woody and Buzz has now become the second highest-grossing movie yet in the UK.

Toy Story 3 has now taken £69,864,920 at the box office, second only to Avatar.

The children's film, which has prompted weeping among parents with its nostalgic triggers, overtook Titanic and Mamma Mia! at the weekend.

However it still has a distance to catch up with Avatar which has taken more than £92 million since its release in the UK.
