    Toy Story 3 will be the number one box office film 2010

    I'm going to make a few guarantees.

    Biggest Animated Opening
    Shrek 3-121 million

    Toy Story 3-155 million

    Biggest Animated Movie Domestic
    Shrek 2-441 million

    Toy Story 3-520 million

    Biggest Animated Movie Foreign
    Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs-687 million

    Toy Story 3-750 million.

    Total gross for Toy Story 3-1.2 billion

    This is going to be a juggernaut this summer. Iron Man 2 kicks off the summer and basically will make all of its money in May and most of June. TS3 will have to deal with Twilight Eclipse but that will fall off fast. And then the next big film to come out will be Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 but TS3 will be out of theaters by then.

    And there's also Shrek the Fourth. I think audiences are a little Shreked out by this point.

    I agree about Shrek. The last two were nowhere near as good as the first, unlike Toy Story 2 which was every bit as good if not better than the first. My 2 year old son loves the TS characters and the first movie came out 13 years before he was even born so I think that goes to show that the Buzz, Woody, and CO. will really win over new fans as well as appeal to those fans they already have this summer.

    Looking forward to TS3. We don't go to the movies often, but did go to TS 1 & 2 when re-released in 3D last fall and loved them all over again.

    Ditto to all a' that!
    I forgot how much I REALLY loved those movies until we went back and saw the re-releases in 3D, also! So much so, that I'm going to start my own Toy Story collection.
    It's sometimes very difficult bein' a CM at The Disney Store with an employee discount and walkin' by the display all shift and not buyin' somethin' "Toy Story" every single time!
    I'm sure it's gonna' be even tougher after TS3!!!

    I can't wait! Pixar does such a good job with their films.

    Okay you made some guarantees....so what do we get if they don't happen. That being what a guarantee is!

    I wouldn't discount the inexplicable Twilight juggernaut. It did crazy business this year and if not for Avatar, would've probably been the box office king of '09. It has not lost any of its popularity. Iron Man 2 will do crazy business as well but that really is it. There aren't as many epic franchise flicks out this year as in previous years, at least not in the summer. The big summer flicks for 2010 are more middling remakes and out of place period epics. Shrek 4 looks terrible and is getting very little anticipatory buzz.

    I imagine Toy Story 3 is easily in the Top 3 contention with IM2 and that vamp flick. And really has the most wide appeal of those 3.
