Since 2010 has come and gone, the numbers for the year have been collected, compiled and compared. Now, those numbers have been released. According to domestic data compiled by Rentrak between January 1 2010 and December 31 2010, Toy Story 3 proved to be the biggest box office moneymaker of 2010. The Oscar-nominated animated film grossed $415,004,880 in theaters in 2010. This is a sizable lead over the second place Alice in Wonderland which brought in $334,191,110 through the year.

I had a feeling Avatar would be the best selling DVD since it did so well in theaters. But, didn't expect Toy Story GET HIGHEST GROSSING MOVIE, NICE.

Honestly, I would've expected it to be the other way around. With Avatar running a long time in 2010 as well, plus having the re-release. And just how huge the movie was. Though, I guess it just wasn't factored into the numbers they released due to it actually being a 2009 release. That being said though, if you do count what Avatar did at the box office in 2010, it ranks right up there with Toy Story 3 and possibly surpasses it just a bit.

I also expect that Toy Story 3 and Avatar race in the DVD section was pretty close as well considering how long Toy Story 3 has stayed in the Top 10 charts.

Yeah, but Toy Story is a classic, Avatar is not.
