‘Toy Story 4’ Opens at No. 1 at the Box Office, but Somehow Disappoints with $118M Debut

Walt Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4 didn’t exactly bomb on its weekend debut, but at $118 million, the sequel brought in far less than the $140 million to $150 million industry analysts predicted, according to the Associated Press. It still ranks as the fourth-highest animated opening of all time after Shrek the Third which made $122 million in 2007, Finding Dory which brought in $135 million in 2016 and Incredibles 2 that debuted domestically with $183 million at the box office in 2018. Toy Story 3 brought in the equivalent of $129 million when it debuted nine years ago.
