Pixar’s Toy Story 4, which is the fourth part of the Toy Story series, was released in the US on June 21 and broke the franchise’s opening weekend records and beat the sales record of all prior Toy Story movies. Toy Story, Toy Story 2, and Toy Story 3 recorded sales of $29.1 million, $57.3 million, and $110 million in the domestic opening weekend, respectively.

Toy Story 4 recorded $118 million in sales in the US only. Internationally, the Pixar movie earned $120 million, including $23.4 million from Mexico, $15 million from the UK, and $13.4 million from China.

Further, Toy Story 4 was the third movie this year, which earned over $100 million. The other two were Captain Marvel, which made $153.4 million during the debut weekend in March, and Avengers: Endgame, which set all-time box office records with a $357.1 million debut in April.
