Box Office: 'Cars 3' drives past 'Wonder Woman'
HOLLYWOOD - Despite signs of franchise fatigue, Pixar and Disney's 'Cars 3' dominates the road at the box office.
The threequel opened to an estimated $53.5 million from 4,256 theaters, enough to beat ruling champ 'Wonder Woman'.
Make no mistake, 'Wonder Woman' continues to impress.
In the coming days, 'Wonder Woman' will eclipse 2008's Mamma Mia! to become the top-grossing female-directed live-action film of all time, not accounting for inflation.
The other big headline of the week is the Tupac Shakur biopic 'All Eyez on Me', directed by Benny Boom. The movie, landing at No. 3.
Universal's 'The Mummy' followed at No. 4. While the Tom Cruise starrer might be lagging in the U.S., it continues to do solid business overseas.
In a surprise upset, 'Rough Night' was beaten by the femme-centric shark thriller '47 Meters Down', starring Mandy Moore and Claire Holt. The film, the first major title from Byron Allen's distribution venture Entertainment Studios, lands at No. 5. (Source: The Hollywood Reporter)
