'Toy Story 3' finds big play time with $109M debut

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Movie fans have not outgrown the "Toy Story 3" gang.

The animated sequel about toys that come to life leaped to the No. 1 spot with a $109 million opening weekend. "Toy Story 3" became the third animated film to top $100 million in the first weekend, joining "Shrek the Third" at $121.6 million and "Shrek 2" at $108 million.

 It was by far the best debut for a film from Disney's Pixar Animation, topping "The Incredibles" at $70.5 million.

 "Toy Story 3" took over the No. 1 spot from Sony's "The Karate Kid," which pulled in $29 million to raise its 10-day total to $106.3 million.

 The weekend's other new wide release, the Warner Bros. action tale "Jonah Hex," bombed with just $5.1 million.
