Disney and Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” is three weeks away and hit short-range tracking services this morning like an earthquake.
Early numbers from box office analysts indicate the new film has an excellent chance of beating the $182 million three-day debut last year of “Incredibles 2” to garner a new opening record for an animated feature.
Fandango and Atom Tickets are already reporting that the first day of movie ticket pre-sales has already set a record for an animated movie, with the latter indicating the film sold nearly 50% more tickets than their top three animated movie pre-sellers combined in the same time period.
The buzz is a $200 million opening isn’t out of the question. That would be a massive jump on “Toy Story 3” which opened in June 2010 to $110.3 million in the United States.
