Walt Disney Studios' enjoyed both the number one and two spot at the Irish box office at the weekend with Aladdin still flying high after five weeks of release with a total to date of nearly €3m.

The Disney and Pixar film raked in £13.3 million for its opening weekend in the United Kingdom and Ireland, pushing it to take the record for the biggest ever three day opening weekend for an animation.

Overseas, "Toy Story 4" picked up $120 million from 37 worldwide territories for a global start of $238 million.

La transaction devrait être bouclée à la fin de l'année, sous réserve du feu vert des autorités chinoises de la concurrence. L'accord signé ce dimanche est le résultat de la dégradation des résultats économiques de Carrefour en Chine.

But heading into the weekend, a $140-150 million opening had seemed assured for Toy Story 4, which played in 4,575 North American theatres.

The fourth "Toy Story" again features the unmistakable voice of Tom Hanks as Woody, the ever-eager but empty-holstered cowboy doll, Tim Allen as the impulsive Buzz ("To infinity, and beyond!"), along with Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Keanu Reeves and Joan Cusack.

Also worth a mention is that Disney chose not to debut Toy Story 4 last weekend during Father's Day, which now looks to be a big mistake. Rotten Tomatoes gave the film a rating of 98 percent while audiences gave it an A CinemaScore.

The third film left Woody, Buzz and the rest of the toys in the care of a new owner, Bonnie, as Andy has gone off to college.

Other films that opened along Toy Story 4 in the U.S. this weekend include the horror film Child's Play and the mystery, crime film Anna. Box Office Mojo reported that it was films already out of their first week that took the third through tenth place spots. The live-action musical pocketed $12 million in its fifth weekend of release, boosting its domestic total to $288 million. Last week's top film, Sony Pictures' poorly reviewed Men in Black International slid 64 per cent, slipping to fourth place with $10.8 million. The fourth "MIB" film, starring Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, has generated $52 million to date.

But most other studios would love to have a film underperform to $118 million, with an expectation of long-term playability. It will be interesting to see how well Spider-Man: Far From Home performs at the box office during the 4th of July holiday.
