Cars 3 cruises toward $50m-plus weekend

All Eyez On Me

All Eyez On Me

The first two films in the "Cars" franchise have reflected the growing clout of markets overseas. The film made about $10 million less than CARS 2, but given how bad CARS 2 is and the general lack of excitement for a third film, $50 million isn't a bad take.

However, Patty Jenkins" directorial "Wonder Woman' continues its impressive run at the box-office falling a scant 30 percent in the U.S.to 40.8 million United States dollars for a domestic total of 274.6 million USD. In a surprising third place with $27 million is "All Eyez on Me", the biopic on the late rapper, Tupac Shakur. Meanwhile, things are not looking good for Scarlet Johansson's "Rough Night", which earned $8 million in its opening weekend and received a "C+" from CinemaScore.

In the No. 3 spot this weekend is All Eyez On Me. Starring Tom Cruise and directed by Alex Kurtzman, The Mummy continues to do solid business overseas, where it crowned the weekend with $53 million from 68 markets for a foreign total of $239.1 million and global tally of $295.6 million. After years in development hell and numerous directors attached (including John Singleton and Antoine Fuqua), the movie finally hit theaters with weekend with music video director Benny Boom at the helm.

Despite going on its third week, Wonder Woman followed close behind McQueen with $40.7 million.

Four new wide releases shake up the box office, as Pixar's latest leads the way, along with one surprise breakout and one decently sized flop. The film is now on pace for just under $52 million, but analysts believe a late Father's Day surge could propel it to the high $50 million range if not over $60 million. "47 Meters Down", $11.5 million 6. Originally scheduled for a video-on-demand release last August, Entertainment Studios purchased the movie from Dimension Films and chose to release it theatrically. The fifth "Pirates" film has earned $150.1 million domestically and $500 million internationally. Entertainment Studios' "47 Meters Down" rounds out the top five with a $10.6 million opening from 2,270 screens. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.
