'Toy Story 3', Most Successful 2010 Summer Movie




When considered by its ticket sales intake, the animation beats 'Iron Man 2', 'Twilight Saga's Eclipse' and others with $405 million.

"Toy Story 3" was the shining star of the summer at the U.S. box office, taking in a huge $405 million in ticket sales. The third installment in the hit franchise overtook "Shrek 2" to become the world's most successful cartoon film last month, and was also the biggest blockbuster of the summer season - outselling its live-action rivals.

Sequels were big business at America's box office over the last few months, with "Iron Man 2" coming in second with $312 million and "The Twilight Saga's Eclipse" at number three with takings of $298 million. The top five summer movies also included "Inception", with $267 million and "Shrek Forever After", which took $238 million.

It's the latest box office record that "Toy Story 3" has smashed - it became the first animated movie to cross the $1 billion mark earlier this year. The U.S. box office summer season runs from May to August.
