The Billion Dollar Movie Club

A few weeks after breaking the record for the highest-grossing animated flick of all time, Pixar’s “Toy Story 3” has just become only the seventh movie ever to rake in $1 billion in worldwide box office receipts. The Wrap reports that Disney announced the movie crossed the ten-digit threshold on Friday, making the studio the first to have two billion-dollar earners in one year (“Alice in Wonderland” being the other 2010 release).

The third, and reportedly final, installment in the ground-breaking trilogy drew near universal critical praise and earned $404 million since it opened in June, making it the highest grossing flick of the year.
