‘Toy Story 3’ tops the box office for its 2nd week
It looks like animated 3D characters bested Adam Sandler and Tom Cruise during this weekend’s box office slug-fest.
Walt Disney and Pixar Studio’s “Toy Story 3” claimed the top spot in ticket sales in the United States and Canada for second week in a row, bringing in $59 million.
The Adam Sandler starrer “Grown Ups” arrived at second place with $41 million. On the third spot, “Knight and Day,” which provided the dual star power of Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, debuted with $20.5 million for Fox Studio.
“Toy Story 3,” the animation that was brought to life with the voices of Tom Hanks as Sheriff Woody, Tim Allen as the ever-colorful Buzz Lightyear and supported by other stars such as Ned Beatty, accumulated as much as $226.6 million since its June 18 film release.
On the fourth place came in the 1984 remake of the “Karate Kid” starring Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith which grossed over $15.4 million. On the fifth spot came in the “A-team” which included a star studded cast featuring Liam Neeson, Jessica Biel, and mixed martial arts athlete Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.
