It had only been done six times before. An animated film had never achieved it. This past weekend, Toy Story 3 joined the exclusive billion-dollar club, bringing its worldwide total to about $1.01 billion. It also passed The Dark Knight in the process to lay claim to the #6 spot on the all-time worldwide list.
- The official worldwide total so far for Toy Story 3 is $1,012,059,221. (That’s a lot of digits!)
- In the US and Canada, it grossed just over $1 million this weekend for a total of $405,659,221
- In other countries, it has taken in $606,400,000, representing about 60% of the worldwide total
- The #5 position on the worldwide list is currently occupied by Alice in Wonderland ($1.024 billion), which was also released by Disney this year
- Toy Story 3 will likely overtake Alice in Wonderland and has a real chance at passing current #4, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest ($1.066 billion)
