‘Toy Story 4' once again tops North America box office

Toy Story 4

LOS ANGELES (AFP) - "Toy Story 4" once again outplayed the competition at the North American box office, raking in $59.7 million in its second weekend in theaters, industry watcher Exhibitor Relations said Monday.

The fourth installment in the wildly popular Disney/Pixar series has earned $238.7 million so far in the United States and Canada, alongside another $259 million abroad.

The film again features the unmistakable voices of Tom Hanks as Woody, the ever-eager but empty-holstered cowboy doll, and Tim Allen as the impulsive Buzz Lightyear ("To infinity, and beyond!").

Far back in second place was "Annabelle Comes Home," the latest in a series of horror films featuring the creepy doll, which opened at $20.3 million.

In third place was another debut flick, "Yesterday," a romantic comedy based on a fanciful idea: what if the Beatles never existed?

A mysterious global blackout leads the world to forget the Fab Four, except for one struggling singer-songwriter who becomes an overnight sensation by performing the iconic tunes.

"Yesterday," directed by Danny Boyle ("Trainspotting," "Slumdog Millionaire"), earned $17 million.

Fourth place went to Disney's live-action remake of "Aladdin," at $10.1 million.

And fifth spot went to Universal's animated "The Secret Life of Pets 2," at $7.3 million.
