Toy Story 4 Estimated to Bring in $200 Million on Opening Weekend
Although initial reports from BoxOfficePro stated that Toy Story 4 was eyeing a $130 million dollar opening weekend, that number has since skyrocketed among box office analysts.
According to Deadline, the new tracking number is currently $200 million dollars, which would shatter the previous record held by Incredibles 2 of $182.6 million. Pre-sale tickets for Toy Story 4 went on sale this past Tuesday, and now both Fandango and Atom Tickets report that the film has already outsold Incredibles 2 in the first 24 hours. Over at Fandango, Toy Story 4 also outsold Finding Dory, the live-action Beauty and the Beast, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Meanwhile, Toy Story 4 sold 50% more tickets on Atom than Incredibles 2, Ralph Breaks the Internet, and Hotel Transylvania 3, with moviegoers voting it one of the Top 5 most anticipated movies of the summer as well as one of their most anticipated family movies.
The previous Toy Story film – released in June 2010 – opened with $130 million dollars and went on to make $1.06 billion dollars.
Toy Story 4 opens June 21st.
