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

'Cars 3' Speeds Its Way To No. 1 With $52M; 'Wonder Woman' Drops To 2nd Place. Wonder Woman maintains good third weekend at the 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.
