“TOY STORY” LIKELY TO REACH INFINITY AT BOX OFFICE

June 19, 2010 by · 1 Comment 

Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3, the franchise’s first installment in 3D, is a sure bet to dominate the box office this weekend. The Hollywood Reporter and the Los Angeles Times predicted today (Friday) that the movie will earn as much as $100 million, which would make it the studio’s biggest opening ever, far above the $70.5-million record debut for The Incredibles in 2004. But with the bloom off 3D and a disappointing opening last month for DreamWorks Animation’s Shrek Forever After, questions remain about how big a victory the movie will actually score. Meanwhile, some analysts have suggested that a hex has been placed on Warner Bros.’ Jonah Hex, based on the DC Comics character. Reports have indicated that the movie’s tracking reports are dismal and that it will be lucky to earn $10 million this weekend. Widening to 38 theaters, Roadside Attractions is expecting that this year’s Sundance Film Festival winner, Winter’s Bone, will round up most of the adults without children.
UPDATE:
Disney said Saturday that Toy Story 3 earned $41.0 million on Friday — seeming to assure it of a $100-million weekend.
