The popularity of the Pixar films

Filed under: movies and TV — ckrao @ 5:06 am

After an earlier post on the success of the Harry Potter films, I decided to do the same for the Pixar films. The Toy Story films is arguably the best reviewed trilogy, while many of Pixar’s other films have had extremely positive reception.

Movie Release Date Worldwide Gross (USD millions) Worldwide Gross Rank (Nov 2011) imdb rating (/10) Metascore (/100) rottentomatoes fresh reviews
Toy Story Nov-95          362.0 178 8.2 92 76/76 (100%)
A Bug’s Life Nov-98          363.4 174 7.2 77 75/82 (91%)

An amazing nine out of the twelve films released to date have had 95+% scores from rottentomatoes!
