Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” brought the box office to life with a $118 million opening weekend after a three-week slump of underperforming sequels.

The “Toy Story 4” opening, according to studio estimates Sunday morning, ranks as the fourth-highest animated film opening ever, not accounting for inflation. Above it are 2018’s “Incredibles 2” ($182 million), 2016’s “Finding Dory” ($135 million), and 2007’s “Shrek the Third” ($121 million). It’s the year’s third-largest debut, trailing only “Avengers: Endgame” and “Captain Marvel.”

It follows a string of disappointing sequels this spring including “Dark Phoenix,” ”Godzilla: King of the Monsters” and “Men in Black: International.”

But “Toy Story 4” has something those films didn’t: great reviews. It rates 98% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Audiences gave it an A grade on CinemaScore.

We liked it a lot.  4 Stars

The sequel, which introduces the child-crafted plaything Forky (voiced by Tony Hale) to the voice cast including Tom Hanks and Tim Allen, also grossed $120 million internationally, for a worldwide 3-day box office gross of $238 million.
