In addition to the 110.3 million Toy Story 3 earned in ticket sales in the US and Canada, the new Pixar film also generated about $44.8 million at the international box office. Overseas, the film opened in 15 countries. There are many large international markets that have yet to see its release, including the UK, which will see Toy Story 3 released in late July.
More numbers are also emerging about the US and Canadian box office this past weekend (June 18-20). Toy Story 3 amassed $4 million from midnight screenings in the very early hours on Friday morning. The franchise debuted in 1995, when Pixar released the original Toy Story. That is a fifteen-year difference between the first and third entries, allowing a growth of a large fan base of adults who grew up with the films, and children who loved seeing the toys again. Eleven years of anticipation for the return of Andy’s toys to the movie theaters likely increased the popularity of midnight showings for the film.
The 110.3 million made by Toy Story 3 is also the most ever during this weekend in June.
Update: Changed the estimated weekend to totals to actual ($110.3 million)
