'Cars 3' speeds to No. 1, Tupac biopic nets strong debut

Cars 3 cruises toward $50m-plus weekend

The animated sequel made its debut with sales of $53.5 million in the US and Canada, researcher ComScore Inc. estimated Sunday in an email.

Wonder Woman, which was box office champ for its first two weekends in domestic theaters, slipped to second place with $40.8 million. "All Eyez on Me", the Tupac Shakur biopic from Lions Gate Entertainment Corp., opened to $27 million to place third.

To sum it all up: Congrats, Cars 3, on a great opening weekend, and congrats, Wonder Woman, for continuing to kick ass in theaters the world over. The original Cars opened to $60.1 million in its North American debut and went on to earn a total of $462.2 million worldwide. Almost $13 million from 2,471 locations on Friday will put "Eyez" at around $31 million by end of day Sunday, beating out "Wonder Woman's" $11 million Friday estimate.

The "Cars" threequel follows the legendary Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) as he's pushed out of the sport he loves by a new generation of blazing-fast racers.

Diana of Themyscira has officially been unseated by talking cars, but it's cool, because c'mon, now: Even Wonder Woman herself would be moved by the inspirational tale of Lighting McQueen's horse-powered comeback. The G-rated film follows in the tire tracks of 2011's "Cars 2" (66.1 million US dollars debut) and 2006's first installment (60.1 million USA dollars debut). 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.
