(Bloomberg) — “Lightyear” missed estimates in its debut weekend, trailing behind “Jurassic World: Dominion” in a surprise result at the box office.

  • The Walt Disney Co. and Pixar film made an estimated $51 million in the US and Canada over its opening weekend, data tracker Comscore Inc. reported Sunday. That’s well below the estimate from Boxoffice Pro that it would bring in between $76 million and $105 million .
  • “Lightyear” has faced bans abroad and ire from conservative political figures in the US. They have said that the movie’s animated, fictional space inhabitants in a same-sex couple couldn’t naturally produce children and that the portrayal violates their religious beliefs.
