Pixar Studios have been around since 1979, but they actually showed up on the map in 1995 with Toy Story. Their movies have won 26 Academy Awards and more importantly (for the studios) over $7 billion in the box office for their twelve feature film. They always go big, so we thought a minimalist poster gallery would be a nice contrast to what we usually get from them.
One of Pixar’s most surprising hit because the premise was an old guy living alone and then flying off somewhere. Pretty simplistic explanation, right? That’s what the movie sounded like to me before it hit the screens. Box Office? $731 million. RT score – 98%.
Environmental. Science Fiction. Robots falling in love. This film had everything. Box office – $521 million. RT score – 96%.
Pixar’s most forgettable franchise, as it always felt like they made this movie to sell cars. At the time, Cars broke records for retails sale of merchandise for a Disney-Pixar film. Probably their worst film. Box Office – $461 million. RT score – 74%.
The movie was a hit, but was pretty bad, to say the least. Box Office – $559 million. RT score – 39%.
Toy Story 2
Toy Story was the film that started it all for Pixar, and it simply got better from there. Toy Story 3 just might be the greatest animated film of all time, and one of the best ever and never mind the categories. All three movies are a bit short of the $2 billion mark, with Toy Story 3 owning the incredible 99% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
The movie that changed the names pet fish are given forever, besides being touching, awesome and all that. Finding Nemo made over $800 million in the box office and holds a 98% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Soon we’ll have a much awaited prequel, something fans deserve after waiting for a decade and more for it. Unfortunately , it’ll be in 3D. Like every Pixar movie, Monsters was a hit, making $526 million and holds a 95% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
My favorite Pixar movie. Superheroes, even dysfunctional ones, are my pet peeve. Hope we’ll get a sequel one day. Box Office – $631 million. RT Score – 97%.
Pixar was able to do a movie about a chef rat and get a hit. They literally could do no wrong. It made over $600 million in the box office and holds 96% on Rotten Tomatoes.
