(AP) - “Lightyear” did not go to infinity (or beyond) in its first weekend in theaters.

Pixar’s first major theatrical release since March 2020 blasted off with $51 million in its first weekend in North America, according to studio estimates on Sunday.

It opened lower than expected and failed to conquer “Jurassic World: Dominion” which held on to the first-place spot with $58.7 million its second weekend.

And in its fourth weekend, “Top Gun: Maverick” dropped only slightly, bringing in an additional $44 million.

Its domestic total is now at $466.2 million. Globally, the high-flying sequel has grossed over $885 million.
