‘Cars 3? Races Past ‘Wonder Woman’ at the Box Office

June 19, 2017   ·   0 Comments


Pixar’s Cars 3 raced to the front of the pack at this weekend’s box office with an opening-weekend domestic gross of $ 54 million and a foreign take of $ 21million for a $ 75 million worldwide bow.

That’s on the lower end of performance for a Pixar film, beating after inflation adjustments only The Good Dinosaur. However, the Cars series has been a huge driver of merchandise sales for the studio, likely offsetting any concerns about its box office performance.

More newsworthy is the strong second-place finish for Wonder Woman, which held up remarkably well in its third weekend of release with a $ 41 million domestic take. That puts the movie at a whopping $ 275 million domestic gross and $ 297 million foreign gross for a worldwide tally of $ 572 million.

Sixth place went to Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which took in $ 8.5 million domestic. Its domestic total four weeks into its release is $ 150 million, more than tripled by a huge foreign take of $ 500 million.

In eighth place is DreamWorks Animation’s Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, with $ 7.4 million in tickets sales its third weekend in release. The movie has earned $ 58 million domestic to date and $ 4.7 million foreign for a $ 63 million worldwide total.

And in ninth place is Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, with a $ 5 million weekend — its seventh. The space adventure has earned a solid $ 375 million domestic and $ 470 million foreign for a worldwide tally of $ 844 million.
