Toy Story 4 is the fifth Disney movie to pass $1 billion this year

The Walt Disney Company’s incredible year at the box office just keeps on delivering, with Pixar’s Toy Story 4 passing the $1 billion mark at the global box office, the fifth Disney-distributed movie to reach that milestone in 2019.

By close of play on Wednesday, Toy Story 4 had earned $421.8 million in North America and a further $579.9 million internationally for $1.002 billion, which makes it the eighth-biggest animated movie of all time, and the second-highest grossing instalment in the Toy Story franchise behind 2010’s Toy Story 3 on $1.067 billion.

Disney has been smashing box office records left, right and centre this year. Last month, not only did Avengers: Endgame dethrone Avatar as the biggest film in history, but Disney also set a new all-time yearly studio record, thanks in no small part to the aforementioned superhero epic along with the likes of Captain Marvel, Aladdin and The Lion King.

First Trailer Arrives for Dave Chappelle’s 5th Netflix Comedy Special ‘Sticks & Stones’

Once upon a time, it was a stand-up comedian's job to simply entertain the audience and make them laugh. That job has evolved over the years, and while it can be argued that stand-up comics have always been provocateurs of a sort, the border between provocation and comedic entertainment has been pushed over the last few decades. Don Rickles introduced the concept of insult comedy in the 50s, Andy Kaufman redefined performance art in the 70s, Andrew Dice Clay pushed the limits further in the 80s as The Diceman, and the 90s saw the rise of stand-…

John Landis celebrates his 69th birthday on August 3, 2019. Despite his many career ups and downs, the director has created a number of classics across several different genres. In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at 10 of his greatest films, ranked worst to best.

Born in 1950, Landis made his filmmaking debut with the micro-budget creature feature “Schlock” (1973), in which he also starred as an apeman terrorizing a Southern California suburb.

Landis had his greatest successes with comedies, starting with the sketch compilation “The Kentucky Fried Movie” (1977), written by the “Airplane!” trio of Jim Abrahams, David Zucker and Jerry Zucker.

Disney cuts casting couch joke from Toy Story 2

In the wake of the #MeToo movement ad the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct against some of the most powerful figures in Hollywood, Disney has decided to cut a casting couch gag from the Toy Story 2 “blooper” reel for the latest home entertainment re-release of the beloved animated sequel.

The scene in question sees the character of Stinky Pete attempting to chat up a pair of Barbie dolls by suggesting he can get them a role in Toy Story 3. You can watch the gag here…

Toy Story 2 was directed by John Lasseter, who has himself been the subject of numerous sexual misconduct allegations, which resulted in both his departure from the director’s chair on Toy Story 4, and his exit as chief creative officer of both Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios.

Toy Story 4 Spinoff Possible, Tim Allen Compares Franchise to Avengers

This past weekend, Pixar and Disney unleashed the fourth (and final?) entry in the Toy Story saga into a theater near you. And today we have word via Buzz Lightyear himself Tim Allen that the series might continue on like Marvel's The Avengers with "offshoots of characters that have simultaneous stories." Or, you know, Toy Story spin-offs. In a recent interview, Allen was specifically asked if he thinks Toy Story 4 will be the final film in the franchise to which he responded:

"I can't give that away. There's very little to suggest that this isn't, at the very least, [part of] a much bigger world. It reminds me of the Avengers movies - there are not only offshoots of characters that have simultaneous stories, but the world itself got much bigger."

Tim Allen continues to say this.

Does ‘Toy Story 4’ Have a Post-Credits Scene?

Does ‘Toy Story 4’ Have a Post-Credits Scene?
This June has been pretty unusual not for its bevy of franchise films, but for having franchise films that are parts of some pretty old series. “Dark Phoenix,” “Men in Black: International” and now “Toy Story 4” each are new entries in film franchises that are at least 19 years old. While, sure, Hollywood is as franchise-crazy as it’s ever been, this is a little bit beyond the norm.

And while “Dark Phoenix” and the new “Men in Black” have been major disappointments at the box office,

it doesn’t look like “Toy Story 4” is going to suffer quite as dramatic a fate. What’s craziest about that fact is that “Toy Story” is the oldest of those three franchises, having kicked off with the original film back in 1995 — two years before the first “Men in Black” and five years before the first “X-Men” movie.

And it also has

Generally speaking, a fourth entry in a franchise isn’t usually something to get excited about – for every Avengers: Endgame and Mad Max: Fury Road, there’s a Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, a Jaws: The Revenge or a Men In Black: International. In the case of the Toy Story movies, the previous film already gave Woody and co a perfect ending, so what could a fourth instalment possibly bring to the table? Happily, Toy Story 4

Toy Story 4 – Review

So right now all the entertainment pages are filled reports of “franchise fatigue”, that audiences are just not plunking down their moola and getting in line for this year’s models of….X-Men and Men in Black, to name two of many. The case could certainly be made for animated features with the soft returns of the “trained dragons’, Lego, and the swiftly sinking “pets”. But then the original cartoons Missing Link, Wonder Park, and those Ugly Dolls barely made a ripple at the box office. Not to worry, those dull days are over! Cue the music of that Thin Lizzy dance classic (apologies for the title tweak) because “The Toys are Back in Town”. Yes, after a year since Incredibles 2, the fine folks at Pixar are back with another addition to the “game changer” that began the CGI feature flicks. Yes, this is Toy Story 4. Oh, but you
