Toy Story 2: The Buzz In The UK

Opening the weekend of February 11, 2000 in the U.K., TOY STORY 2 has

already broken box office records. Playing on 495 screens, the sequel

grossed US$12.8 million in its first three days. The feat even beat out

bohemeth-grossing STAR WARS EPISODE 1, which made only $12.5 million in its

first U.K. weekend. So far Buena Vista International, which is distributing

the film outside the U.S., said the movie has already grossed $332 million

worldwide. Playing on 3,334 screens outside the U.S. this past weekend, TOY

STORY 2 also garnered the biggest animated opening in Italy, grossing $2.1

million on 234 screens. In addition, on only 67 screens in Denmark, the

Woody and Buzz Lightyear vehicle made $500,000 setting the animation mark

in that country. The next major release for the film, which recently won

the Golden Globe Award for best comedy, is Japan on March 11, 2000.
