Toy Story 4 Stomps Chucky at Box Office
Posted on June 24, 2019
There were two movies about toys in theaters this weekend but only one of them was for kids. Toy Story 4 dominated the box office and made $120 million. Child's Play, a horror movie, featuring the demonic toy-like Chucky character made just $14 million.
Toy Story 4 also set a global opening record for an animated film with $238 million according to Deadline. It has an A CinemaScore.
Child's Play made $14 million in 3,007 theaters for a $4,687 per theater average. It was enough probably to keep the Chucky franchise enough. It has a C+ CinemaScore.
There were some Child's Play movie posters featuring tortured Toy Story characters released online ahead of the weekend but it was Toy Story that got the last laugh.
