'Toy Story 3' back on top in Japan

Regains local boxoffice lead to overtake 'Inception'

TOKYO -- “Toy Story 3” has now pulled in 5.41 billion yen ($62.5 million) as it went back to the top of Japan's weekend rankings after being knocked off by “Inception” last week.
 
Since it recorded the biggest ever opening weekend for a foreign animated film, Walt Disney Studios Japan will be hoping it can overtake “Finding Nemo,” the biggest Disney/Pixar film here to date, which finished up with 11 billion yen.
 
Over 3.7 million moviegoers have caught up with Woody and the gang so far in Japan, after 23 days of release, with audience members paying a typical premium of 300 yen ($3.50) for 3-D screenings.
