'Toy Story 4' once again tops North America box office
LOS ANGELES, USA – Toy Story 4 once again outplayed the competition at the North American box office, raking in $59.7 million in its second weekend in theaters, industry watcher Exhibitor Relations said Monday, July 1.
The 4th installment in the wildly popular Disney/Pixar series has earned $238.7 million so far in the United States and Canada, alongside another $259 million abroad.
The film again features the unmistakable voices of Tom Hanks as Woody, the ever-eager but empty-holstered cowboy doll, and Tim Allen as the impulsive Buzz Lightyear ("To infinity, and beyond!").
Far back in second place was Annabelle Comes Home, the latest in a series of horror films featuring the creepy doll, which opened at $20.3 million.
In 3rd place was another debut flick, Yesterday, a romantic comedy based on a fanciful idea: what if the Beatles never existed?
A mysterious global blackout leads the world to forget the Fab Four, except for one struggling singer-songwriter who becomes an overnight sensation by performing the iconic tunes.
Yesterday, directed by Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), earned $17 million.
The 4th spot went to Disney's live-action remake of Aladdin, at $10.1 million.
And 5th spot went to Universal's animated The Secret Life of Pets 2, at $7.3 million.
A re-release of the blockbuster superhero film Avengers: Endgame earned $6.1 million for 7th place, but its overall global box office take of $2.762 billion is still $26 million shy of the $2.788 billion earned by Avatar.
Rounding out the weekend's top 10 were:
- Men In Black: International ($6.9 million)
- Avengers: Endgame ($6.1 million)
- Child's Play ($4.4 million)
- Rocketman ($3.9 million)
- John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum ($3.2 million)
