Toy Story 4 breaks global box office records

The latest Toy Story sequel has shattered world box office records for an animated film, despite a disappointing opening in America.

The film, featuring the voices of Tom Hanks and Tim Allen, has debuted with $238 million globally, beating The Incredibles 2‘s $235.8 million launch.

But the new film slightly underperformed in North America, failing to meet estimates but still coming in at number one with $119.5 million over the weekend.
