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

All Eyez On Me

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" films are far from Disney and Pixar's highest earners, but "Cars 3" is another example that even a decent opening for the duo is a victory in the big picture.

In third place, the Tupac biopic "All Eyez on Me" debuted with a notable $27.1 million, while the Mandy Moore shark thriller "47 Meters Down" netted $11.5 million.

Tom Cruise's "The Mummy" will follow at the fourth spot for the weekend with an estimated $14 million for a domestic total of $56 million-plus through Sunday.




The kid-friendly movie was directed by Brian Fee - who also worked on storyboards in the franchise's first two movies - and features actors Owen Wilson, Cristela Alonzo, Armie Hammer, Larry the Cable Guy and others. 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 Disney-Pixar production pulled in roughly $20 million on Friday from 4,256 theaters.

DreamWorks Animation's Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, came in eighth place for its third week in theaters, taking in $7.4 million from 2,968 locations for a new North American total of $58 million. Only one in four critics had praise for the movie, in which Demetrius Shipp Jr. plays rapper Shakur. That's lower than the openings of "Cars" ($60.1 million) and "Cars 2" ($66.1). 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".

With that said, Focus' "The Book of Henry" starring Naomi Watts and Jacob Tremblay is only expected to take in $1.5 million from 579 theaters this weekend. "Cars 2" collected 34.1 percent of its box office from the domestic market, down from 52.8 percent for the 2006 original. Check out the June 16-18 box office figures below.
