‘Toy Story 3’ Is No. 1 for 2nd Weekend on Sales of $59 Million

June 27 (Bloomberg) -- “Toy Story 3” was the top film in the U.S. and Canada for the second straight weekend, bringing in $59 million in ticket sales for Walt Disney Co.’s Pixar Studio.

“Grown Ups” opened in second place with $41 million for Sony Corp., Hollywood.com Box-Office said today in an e-mailed statement.

“Toy Story 3” has pulled in $226.6 million since its June 18 release, Hollywood.com said. The 3-D sequel brings back the voices of Tom Hanks as Woody and Tim Allen as Buzz Lightyear and introduces several new toys, including a villainous bear that smells of strawberries, voiced by Ned Beatty. Sales have benefited from the higher prices cinemas charge for 3-D movies, which are on average about $3 more per ticket.

In “Grown Ups,” Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock and David Spade play a group of childhood friends, once teammates on a championship basketball team, who reunite for a Fourth of July holiday weekend.

“Knight and Day” debuted in third place with $20.5 million for News Corp.’s Fox film studio. The action-comedy stars Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz as a fugitive couple racing across the globe.

“The Karate Kid,” a remake of the 1984 film, fell to fourth place from second place with $15.4 million for Sony. The film, starring Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith, has collected $135.6 million in three weeks of release.

“The A-Team” dropped to fifth place from third place with $6 million for Fox. Liam Neeson stars as Hannibal Smith and mixed-martial arts athlete Quinton “Rampage” Jackson plays B.A. Baracus in an update of the 1980s television series.

Ahead of next weekend’s U.S. Independence Day holiday, Summit Entertainment LLC will open “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” on Wednesday, June 30. “The Last Airbender,” a fantasy directed by M. Night Shyamalan, debuts July 1 for Viacom Inc.’s Paramount Pictures.
