'Toy Story 3' tops around the world, again, Tom Cruise follows
Monday 28 June 2010
The 3D sequel and final installment of the Toy Story animated trilogy took the No. 1 position this past weekend around the world, as well as in North America.
Toy Story 3 has now earned more than $100 million in international markets.
Only released in approximately half the countries where it will be shown, with $36 million earned worldwide and $59 million in the US this weekend, the total earnings so far come to $326.6 million, and it is poised to go beyond the original Toy Story next week.
So far, Toy Story 3 is big in Latin America, with the family adventure yet to open in many European, Scandinavian and a few Asian countries.
In the No. 2 spot around the world was Tom Cruise's Knight and Day, and the action comedy with Cameron Diaz also made it to No. 1 in some countries.
The comedy Grown Ups reached the second spot in Australia, like the US, where it opened, behind Toy Story 3.
The performance of holdover films included The Karate Kid in third place, though the film has yet to open in most countries due to the World Cup. The A-Team came in fourth and Sex and the City 2 ranked fifth.
