The summer box office is in full swing and Disney is once again at the top of the charts. “Toy Story 4,” “Anna,” and the “Child’s Play” reboot hit theaters nationwide this weekend, and all three films were hoping to top the charts before “Annabelle Comes Home” and “Spider-Man: Far From Home” hit theaters in the coming weeks.
Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” topped the box office this weekend with a $118M debut across 4,575 locations. Josh Cooley directed “Toy Story 4,” which features the voice talents of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts, Tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, Joan Cusack, Bonnie Hunt, and Kristen Schaal.
The fourth installment had the highest opening in the franchise, beating the 1995 original “Toy Story” which made $29M, and the 1999 opening of “Toy Story 2” which made $57M. “Toy Story 3” was the first Pixar film to open above $100M, making $110M on its opening weekend.
“Child’s Play” landed in second-place overall with a $14M weekend across 3,007 locations. Lars Klevberg directed “Child’s Play,” which stars Aubrey Plaza and features the voice of Mark Hamill.
Disney’s “Aladdin” remained in third-place this week, bringing in $12.2M at 3,435 locations. Now in its fifth week in theaters, “Aladdin” sits with a $287.5M domestic total. Guy Ritchie directed “Aladdin,” and the live-action remake stars Will Smith, Naomi Scott, and Mena Massoud.
Sony Pictures’ “Men in Black International” dropped to fourth-place overall this weekend after bringing in $10.75M in 4,224 locations. The installment is in its follow-up week, and has a $52.6M domestic total. F. Gary Gray directed “Men in Black: International,” which features Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Rebecca Ferguson, and Kumail Nanjiani.
Fifth-place on the domestic charts went to “The Secret Life of Pets 2” from Universal Pictures, which made $10.2M across 3,804 locations. Now in its third week in theaters, the sequel grossed over $117.5M domestically. Chris Renaud and Jonathan del Val directed “The Secret Life of Pets 2,” which features the voice talents of Patton Oswalt, Kevin Hart, Harrison Ford, Eric Stonestreet, Jenny Slate, Tiffany Haddish, Lake Bell, Dana Carvey, Bobby Moynihan, Hannibal Buress, Ellie Kemper, Pete Holmes, and Nick Kroll.
Not making the top five but worth mentioning is this week’s other new release, the action-thriller “Anna.” The movie debuted in ninth-place overall on the domestic charts, only making $3.5M in 2,114 locations. Luc Besson directed “Anna,” starring Sasha Luss, Helen Mirren, Luke Evans, and Cillian Murphy.
“Toy Story 4” battles “Annabelle Comes Home” next week, the upcoming film in the expanding “The Conjuring” universe. The previous installment, “The Curse of La Llorona,” opened at number-one back in April with a $26.3M debut. “Annabelle Creation” hit theaters in 2017, opening at number-one with a $35M weekend.
