Box Office: ‘Cars 3’ Speeds Its Way To No. 1 With $53.5M; ‘Wonder Woman’ Drops To 2nd Place

Cars 3 Box Office

Disney Pixar’s Cars 3 speeds its way to the number one spot, bringing in $53.5 million in its opening weekend at the box office. The third installment has been hailed by some as one of the best films in the Cars franchise. Currently, it has a 65% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a 79% audience score. However, Cars 3 is also the lowest grossing film in the franchise and one of the only Pixar films with a G rating. However, Cars 3 still has a lot of merchandising power and is definitely still not a dud in Disney’s book. It also brought in an estimated $21.3 million internationally, bringing its global gross to $74.8 million.

Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman dropped to second place in its third weekend at the box office, raking in another $40 million, and bringing its domestic total to $40.77 million. Globally, Wonder Woman has now reached $571.8 million, grossing an estimated $274.6 million domestically alone and an overall gross of $297.2 million in sixty two markets overseas. The film is also the second best grossing superhero film in its third weekend, following The Dark Knight, but it lands ahead of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad.

Elsewhere at the box office, the Scarlett Johansson-starring movie, Rough Night, only made $8.1 million in its first weekend, landing the comedy in seventh place. Lionsgate’s Tupac Shakur film, All Eyez On Me, grossed $26 million, landing in third place. The Mandy Moore-starring film, 47 Meters Down, made an estimated $10.65 million landing in fifth place. The Mummy came in third place with $13.5 million for the weekend. Overseas, it’s faring much better with $53 million in its second weekend and has grossed an overall global total of $295.6 million.

    • Marquis de Sade

      Stop playing with yourself, Princess…Here’s a lil’ perspective – wonder floozy’s been out for 3 weeks, and still haven’t cracked the top 100 in the global b.o. …And this is a an I.P. that’s part of the dceu’s H0LY TRINITY.

      • Nando

        I knew Stupid f@gg0t of Sade will be facking p¡ssed

      • Jacob McMillan

        It uh. It’s number 6 right now in global box office. You’re a moron

        • Marquis de Sade

          I’m talkin’ “OVERALL, as in ALL TIME” box office, dceu princess…Not 2017 global b.o..
          MCU’s heavy hitters makes $500+ million in it’s first 7 days of simi-wide release.
          wonder floozy should’ve surpassed that normal benchmark (at least) within halfway through its second week, or by last Sunday.

          • Deckard

            Well it doesn’t surprise me that you are a misogynist as well as a chronic masturbator.

          • Marquis de Sade

            I’ll have you know I only touch myself when I pee pee…and btw, I luuuvvv byttches – your mom will vouch for me.

          • Jacob McMillan

            You’re seriously comparing a movie that has been out for 3 weeks to movies that have already completed their runs. Embarrassing. It’s time to grow up and move out of your parents basement

  • Maxi Iroh

    WW’s small drop continues, the film is making more money than SS, a movie that opened with $30M over WW.

  • Sigh… “..one of the only (Pixar)films with a G rating” .. if by “only” you mean only 13 of 18. C’mon Humberto! Teach your journalists how to Google basic facts before posting an article!
