Toy Story 3 tri­umphs

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

There’s no doubt about the iden­tity of the sum­mer’s box-of­fice sen­sa­tion. Ev­ery­body ex­pected Toy Story 3 to do well, but the Pixar film has ex­ceeded the ex­pec­ta­tions of even the most bullish tip­sters. The pic­ture took only three weeks to pass out Shrek 2 for the ti­tle of most suc­cess­ful an­i­mated fea­ture at the com­bined UK and Ire­land box of­fice. At time of writ­ing, the film (¤78 mil­lion and ris­ing) had just crept past The Re­turn of the King and The Fel­low­ship of the Ring to se­cure fifth place in the all-time chart for these territories. Though TS3 is still mak­ing money, it seems un­likely to pass Avatar to gain the No 1 spot. Ei­ther sec­ond or third place does, how­ever, look pos­si­ble.
