‘Toy Story 4’ Is Bigger Than the Beatles

“Toy Story 4” comfortably topped the domestic box office this weekend, unsurprisingly winning out against a horror sequel and a movie revolving around the music of the Beatles.

Disney-Pixar’s latest “Toy Story” movie sold $57.9 million in domestic tickets during its second weekend in theaters and made an additional $80.6 million overseas, according to the studio. That puts its cumulative global ticket sales at a whopping $496.5 million so far.

It also places “Toy Story 4” slightly behind “Toy Story 3” in terms of staying power, at least in North America. While the fourth installment saw about a 52 percent dip in sales from its first weekend to its second, “Toy Story 3” held on a bit better back in 2010, with around a 46 percent decrease, according to Box Office Mojo. So while the fourth movie’s performance is solid, it isn’t earth-shattering for the series.

In a distant second was Warner Bros.’s “Annabelle Comes Home,” a horror movie about a demonic doll, which sold $20.4 million in tickets. It’s the latest film in the “Conjuring” saga, which began in 2013 and has made a great deal of money for Warner Bros.
