Toy Story 3 reaches $1 billion in worldwide box office takings

Last Friday saw Disney/Pixar's "Toy Story 3" become only the seventh film ever to reach the $1 billion worldwide box office mark, and it is now currently sixth in the all-time chart having overtaken "Batman: The Dark Knight" in the process.

Given that "Alice in Wonderland" also crossed the $1 billion mark earlier in the year, 2010 has been an amazing year for Disney, and in fact it is the first time that a studio has had two $1 billion movies in the same year.
