Onward tops weekend box office, but disappoints

Pixar’s Onward led the domestic box office with $40 million in ticket sales over its debut weekend.

The film centers on two elf brothers, voiced by Tom Holland and Chris Pratt, who try to bring their father back to life with a magic spell that only partly succeeds.

Despite taking the top spot, Onward‘s opening was weak compared to other Pixar movies.

Inside Out opened in 2015 with about $98 million in domestic ticket sales, adjusting for inflation. Onward also received a strong 86 percent fresh rating from Rotten Tomatoes, but the studio’s last three films (Toy Story 4, Incredibles 2, and Coco) had scores of at least 94.
