'Cars 3' speeds to No. 1, Tupac biopic nets strong debut

19 June 2017

The third installment in Pixar's Cars franchise saw the animated feature debut with an estimated $53.5 million domestically and $21.3 million internationally.

Having passed the $500 million global mark on Saturday, "Wonder Woman" is now estimated to finish the weekend with a domestic cume of $274.6 million.

The "Cars" films are far from Disney and Pixar's highest earners, but "Cars 3" is another example that even a decent opening for the duo is a victory in the big picture.

Wonder Woman, which was box office champ for its first two weekends in domestic theaters, slipped to second place with $40.8 million.

Lionsgate's "All Eyez On Me" opened in third place with an estimated 27.05 million USA dollars.

Universal's "The Mummy" placed fourth with an estimated 13.9 million US dollars in its second weekend.

Despite being knocked down to second place, Wonder Woman still had an impressive showing. That's a lower opening than "Cars" (US$60.1 million) and "Cars 2" (US$66.1 million), but still enough to win the weekend. The film - which was criticized on Twitter by Jada Pinkett Smith for its inaccuracies - did not receive many positive reviews (EW's Leah Greenblatt gave it a B-), but audiences seemed to enjoy the movie's rendition of the cultural icon and prolific rapper's (played by Demetrius Shipp Jr.) life, giving it an A- on CinemaScore. The R-rated Tupac Shakur biopic earned an estimated $27.1 million from 2,471 locations.

The raunchy comedy "Rough Night" got off to a rough start in seventh place. Lucia Aniello directed the film.
