Cars 3 tops Wonder Woman for weekend box office win

Cars 3 cruises toward $50m-plus weekend

Cars 3 cruises toward $50m-plus weekend

Pixar and Disney's Cars 3 dominated the road, opening to an estimated $53.5 million from 4,256 theaters, followed by Wonder Woman, which fell a scant 30 percent in the U.S.to $40.8 million for a domestic cume of $274.6 million.

"Wonder Woman" of Warner Bros. continues its strong performance in box office with an estimated 40.7 million USA dollars in its third weekend in North America.

Lionsgate's "All Eyez On Me" opened in third place with an estimated 27.05 million USA dollars. Cars, which hit theaters in 2006, opened to $60.1 million in its North American debut before topping out at $462.2 million worldwide.

Lionsgate's biopic about hip-hop star Tupac Shakur placed third, earning an estimated $27.1 million at the domestic box office.

The third "Cars" movie from Walt Disney Co.'s Pixar topped the box office in theaters, beating a slew of middling new releases and dethroning two-time champ "Wonder Woman".

The film performed better in its third weekend than any of the three recent DCEU films did: 2013's Man of Steel came in at $20.7 million after a 49.8 percent drop, 2016's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice earned $23.4 million after 54.5 percent drop, and Suicide Squad made $20.9 million after 52.1 percent drop. Sony can't be happy with the performance of the R comedy "Rough Night", which only took in $8 million on over 3,000 screens. Only one in four critics had praise for the movie, in which Demetrius Shipp Jr. plays rapper Shakur.

Similary, shark thriller 47 Meters Down, starring Mandy Moore and Claire Holt, the first major title from independent distributor Entertainment Studios, is now swimming toward the $10 million range, ahead of intitial projections of about $6 million.

Jillian Bell, Scarlett Johansson, Zoe Saldana, Ilana Glazer, and Kate McKinnon's raunchy comedy "Rough Night" had a rough start at just over $3 million from 3,162 locales on Friday.

Outside the top 10 is Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow's latest film, The Book of Henry, which earned an estimated $1.4 million from 579 locations.

The bad news is that, with the notable exceptions of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and It Comes at Night, the rest of the box office is in a sad state.
