    Welcome back, summer!

    As expected, the amazing Toy Story 3 (which I've already seen twice) took first place this weekend, opening with $109 million.  That's the biggest opening for a Pixar film since The Incredibles opened with $70.4 million in 2004, and the third biggest opening weekend of the year.

    Toy Story 3 also took an additional $44.8 million overseas, with further overseas releases scheduled to start after the World Cup ends next month.

    Last week's champ, The Karate Kid, help up well, dropping only 47% to earn $29 million, and crossing the $100 million mark domestically.  With schools letting out this week, this should continue to play well into the summer.

    The A-Team, which had a disappointing opening weekend, fell to third place, but didn't do badly this weekend, only dropping 46%.  It's still far off from making back its reported $100 million production budget, but it hasn't fallen off the face of the earth in its second weekend either.

    Get Him to the Greek continued to perform well with $6.1 million, and Shrek seems headed for that Forever After now that Toy Story 3 is here, rounding out the top 5 with $5.5 million.  Prince of Persia even managed a decent weekend with $5.2 million, although its doing far better overseas with $213 million.  Killers is also hanging in there with $5.1 million.

    It was initially thought this weekend's other new release, Jonah Hex, was making a mistake opening the same weekend as Toy Story 3.  Turns out its biggest mistake was existing at all.  Jonah Hex finishes a pitiful opening weekend with a barely noticible $5 million.  The only good news going for Jonah is that it had a better opening weekend than MacGruber

    Iron Man 2, which finally crossed the $300 million domestic mark earlier this week, finished at 9th place with $2.6 million.  Its worldwide total now stands at $604 million.

    In 10th place is Marmaduke, earning $2.65 million from presumably anyone who couldn't get into Toy Story 3 or Shrek this weekend.

    Check back with Mitch when he updates with actuals.  Happy Father's Day!

    I lurve Toy Story, the first. I don't believe I ever saw the sequel. My kittens are big cats now, no interest in these movies so I don't have a good excuse to go :)
