Rob and Taylor may be cute, but the pair were no match for America’s original heartthrob — Barbie!

After a summer that drew out superstar movie turns from Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert Downey Jr., and the Twilight trifecta of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner, it was the film with zero star power that won the summer box officeToy Story 3! The New York Times reports that with a current take of $405 million, the kids flick beat out Iron Man 2 ($312 million) and The Twilight Saga : Eclipse ($298 million) for number one at the American box office.

Not to be left out, other strong films this summer included The Karate Kid, Inception, Salt, and Grown-Ups.
