Box office report: Cars 3 races past Wonder Woman

Cars 3 cruises toward $50m-plus weekend

'Cars 3' Takes Checkered Flag With $53 Million Opening

Disney's Cars 3 raced past superhero flick Wonder Woman to number one at the North American box office over the weekend, with a US$53.3 million (73.7 million) haul, industry estimates showed Sunday.

Although "Cars 3" bumped "Wonder Woman" out of first place, the Warner Brothers action film came in second with a strong $40.8 million, averaging its domestic total to $274. The other big headline is Tupac Shakur biopic "All Eyez on Me", which is doing far better than expected for a likely $30 million-plus launch in the US. Pixar spent around $200 million on "Cars 2", not including marketing, according to Box Office Mojo.

In "Cars 3", Owen Wilson returns as the voice of Lightning McQueen. The first two "Cars" movies combined have made more than US$435 million in the USA and US$1 billion globally. The only WB film Wonder Woman is trailing behind is The Dark Knight, which earned $42.6 million in its third weekend after a 43.2 percent drop. 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.

Now finishing its sophomore weekend, Universal's The Mummy landed in fourth place with $13.9 million from 4,034 theaters for a 10-day domestic total of $56.6 million.

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

"Rough Night" looks to be beat by independent shark thriller "47 Meters Down", starring Mandy Moore and Claire Holt. Sony's R-rated bachelorette party gone wrong pic earned only $8.1 million against a $20 million budget.

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.
