'Cars 3' races to first place at the box office

'Cars 3' races to first place at the box office

Cars 3 weekend total is an estimated $53.5 million, according, to Box Office Mojo.

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. Cars 3 ranks as the lowest opening in the franchise and well below the $60 million that Disney had forecast earlier last week. Despite the drop to the number two spot, Wonder Woman still brought in an impressive $40.8 million to brings its three-week total to an impressive $274.6 million.

Meanwhile, Tupac Shakur's biopic ' All Eyez on Me, ' directed by Benny Boom landed at No. 3, with 27.1 million United States dollars from 2,471 theaters. Two other new movies, "47 Meters Down" and "Rough Night", placed fifth and seventh, respectively.

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

A scene from Disney•Pixar's 'Cars 3'. That's enough to beat out Wonder Woman, which had been ruling the box office for a few weeks now!

WHAT DID YOU SEE at the movies this weekend?

The news is rough for Sony's raunchy female comedy, "Rough Night".

"It is genuinely a amusing movie that was made at the right price, and there is a place for Rough Night as summer counter-programming in the coming weeks", said Sony's distribution chief Adrian Smith. It stars Scarlett Johansson, Zoë Kravitz, Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell and Ilana Glazer, and follows a bachelorette party that goes wrong after a male stripper dies. "The Mummy" took fourth place with a $13.9 million haul.

The femme-centric shark thriller 47 Meters Down, the 1st major title from Byron Allen's distribution venture Entertainment Studios, grossed $11- from 2,270 theaters to come in at #5.
