Disney’s “Lightyear” bombs opening weekend while “Maverick” soars to nearly $900 Million box office

Disney’s “Lightyear” had what industry analysts consider a very disappointing opening weekend.

AV Club wrote ‘ After pulling some of the worst reviews and early fan reactions ever for a Pixar project, Lightyear proved to be a box office disappointment in its opening weekend. Not only did the Toy Story spin-off post a tepid (by Pixar standards) $51 million during its launch weekend, but it couldn’t even get past Jurassic World: Dominion, which retained the top spot at the box office during its second week of release. So why exactly is everyone going all Zurg on Lightyear? Here’s a closer look at the reasons—some obvious, others more existential—Lightyear didn’t send audiences to infinity and beyond.”

“Lightyear” featured a controversial same sex kiss that got the film banned in multiple countries.

Dr. Jordan B. Peterson wrote “This is so unfortunate:) — the revenge of the market :)”

Meanwhile, the patriotic Top Gun: Maverick has earned $885.2 million at the global box office through Sunday, an absolute triumph.
