'Toy Story 3'There's still plenty of buzz surrounding Woody and the gang, as the first new 'Toy Story' movie in 11 years made some box office history for Pixar. In fact, moviegoers were so busy playing with 'Toy Story 3' that they forgot all about comic-book-to-screen newbie 'Jonah Hex.'

'Toy Story 3' opened pretty much as expected, with an estimated $109 million. That's well above the $70.4 million opening of 'The Incredibles' six years ago, which had been Pixar's previous record holder. Chalk the difference up to inflated ticket prices (especially because of 3-D and IMAX surcharges) nearly unanimous positive reviews, Disney's skillful eight-month marketing campaign, and general good will toward Pixar movies and this franchise in particular. The movie set another record with its opening-day take of $41 million, the best ever for an animated feature. By Sunday, it could claim the second-best opening ever for an animated movie. (2007's 'Shrek the Third' still holds the record, with $121 million.)

Megan Fox in 'Jonah Hex'Really, no movie could compete with that, but 'Jonah Hex' did even worse than predicted. The supernatural comic-book western had been expected to earn $10 to $15 million and finish in third or fourth place. On Friday, the Josh Brolin starrer looked like it was headed for a top-five finish, but poor word of mouth apparently doomed it after that. By Sunday, it had earned only an estimated $5.09 million, edged out of seventh place by the three-week old adventure 'Killers,' which earned just an estimated $15,000 more. The movie disappointed comics fans who felt the film wasn't faithful to its source, while offering little to attract audiences unfamiliar with the character. Proof, apparently, that no one wants to see Megan Fox unless she's wearing Daisy Dukes and running from giant robots.

Last week's newcomers, 'The Karate Kid' and 'The A-Team,' did as well as expected. Each lost a little less than half of last week's business. 'Karate Kid' finished at No. 2 with $29 million, enough to cross the $100 million line in total earnings in its first 10 days of release. 'A-Team' was third with $13.78 million, for a 10-day total of just under $50 million.

'Get Him to the Greek' retained surprising stamina in its third week, dropping just 39 percent to $6.12 million and finishing at No. 4. 'Shrek Forever After' dipped a little further than expected, losing two-thirds of last week's business, but it finished with $5.52 million, good enough for fifth place.
