"To infinity and beyond," indeed: "Toy Story 3" is the highest-grossing toon in the world.
"In its ninth week of release, Disney/Pixar's 3D toon boosted its worldwide totals to a whopping $940.1 million, adding $22.7 million at the international box office through the weekend of Aug. 13-15.
"The pic passed DreamWorks Animation's "Shrek 2" ($919.8 million) and now has its sights set on $1 billion, which would make it the seventh title ever to do so. Currently, "Toy 3" stands as the ninth-highest worldwide grosser, behind Disney's own "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" ($963.4 million). Twentieth Century Fox's "Avatar" ranks as all-time global B.O. champ, with revenues at a colossal $2.7 billion."
Holy crap! Considering Toy Story 2 grossed about $485 million this is an amazing feat!
