Who Came Out On Top In The Weekend Box Office?

All Eyez On Me

The animated threequel, Cars 3, drove away from the pack and finished first at the box office on its debut weekend, earning an estimated $54-million.

The G-rated "Cars 3" got an "A" CinemaScore and generally positive reviews, but it will have to contend with "Despicable Me 3" which opens in two weeks. The first two "Cars" movies combined have made more than $435 million in the US and $1 billion globally.

The third chapter in the Cars movies beat 3-weekend champion Wonder Woman, but it still premiered to lower than expected numbers.

Tropical storm warnings issued in Louisiana
The agency is also monitoring another disturbance that is now being labeled as Potential Tropical Cyclone Three. This storm may briefly become a Tropical Storm before weakening in the Caribbean as it quickly pushes westward.

"Wonder Woman" was knocked down to second place with $40.8 million, bringing its domestic total to $274. "Rough Night", $8.1 million 8. It is now the 16th Pixar film to debut at number one. The movie once again stars Owen Wilson as Lightning McQueen, alongside newcomers Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer) and Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo).

The movie is the directorial venture of Brian Fee, who worked as a storyboard artist on Cars and Cars 2, as well as Ratatouille and Wall-E. The movie grossed a muted $3.3 million Friday for a projected $8 million-plus weekend. It took the top spot from that had been held by "Wonder Woman" and is proving to be just the latest box office hit that Disney has put out in 2017. Demetrius Shipp Jr. plays the mythologized rapper.

While many worn out franchises and franchise hopefuls continue to struggle to find a significant North American audience, smaller films such as the Tupac biopic "All Eyez on Me" and the shark thriller "47 Meters Down" were able to break through the clutter and make a splash this weekend. It's the first major release from Entertainment Studios, which acquired the project from its original distributor, Dimension Films. It has made an estimated $651 million against a $230 million budget. The project combines the talents of director and co-writer Lucia Aniello, co-writer and actor Paul W. Downs, and star Ilana Glazer - the three are frequent collaborators on Comedy Central's "Broad City" and "Time Traveling Bong". "The Mummy", $13.9 million ($56.5 million total) 5.
