Box Office Weekend: Pixar's Cars 3 Takes Top Spot from Wonder Woman

Pixar's Cars 3 raced to the front of the pack at this weekend's box office with an opening-weekend domestic gross of $54 million and a foreign take of $21million for a $75 million worldwide bow. Bollyarena.netreports that Cars 3 and Despicable Me 3 have collected Rs 4.10 crore and Rs 4.50 crore respectively, sweeping the stage hands down from Y Film's Bank Chor.

"Cars 3" had the worst opening in the series' history - "Cars" opened to $60.1 million and "Cars 2" to $66.1 million - and it was one of the lowest debut totals for the Pixar brand.

Wonder Woman dropped just 30% domestically this weekend, grossing $40.8 million and pushing its North American cume to $274.6 million.

Taking the third spot was the Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez on Me, exceeding expectations with $27.1 million. "Rough Night", $8.1 million 8.




The ensemble voice cast of Cars 3 includes Owen Wilson, Cristela Alonzo, Armie Hammer, Nathan Fillion, Kerry Washington and Lea DeLaria.

Interest in Cars 3 may soon change thanks to positive feedback the animated movie has been receiving from both critics and audiences. Demetrius Shipp Jr. plays the mythologized rapper.

Sadly, more people went to see the low budget thriller "47 Meters Down", starring Mandy Moore and a whole bunch of sharks chasing her. It's the first major release from Entertainment Studios, which acquired the project from its original distributor, Dimension Films. The film generated an estimated $11.5 million, well above the predicted $6 million to $9 million, according to Box Office Analyst. Pinkett-Smith slammed the movie as "deeply hurtful".

"Rough Night" opened in seventh place, behind "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales", which brought in $8.5 million. Lucia Aniello directed the film.
