Summer movies are winding down with interesting results. While some movies flourished others hardly impressed. It was a summer for sequels and more at the box office as Toy Story 3 ($409 million), Iron Man 2 ($312 million), and Twilight: Eclipse ($299 million), were the top three movie money makers domestically. Inception ($278 million) and Despicable Me ($241 million) were close behind. Top five worldwide money makers were Toy Story 3 (just over one billion), Shrek Forever After ($721 million), Inception ($697 million), Twilight Eclipse ($655 million), and Iron Man 2 ($622 million).
