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 haul by "Cars 3" beat "Wonder Woman", which had box-office sales of $40.8 million in its third weekend. The latest DC Comics superhero movie, directed by Patty Jenkins, brought in 274.6 million US dollars after just 17 days in theaters through Sunday in North America and 571.8 million USA dollars worldwide. If Wonder Woman keeps drawing audiences at this rate - which it probably will, as it shows no signs of stopping - it'll break Mamma Mia! That's a lower opening than "Cars" (US$60.1 million) and "Cars 2" (US$66.1 million), but still enough to win the weekend.
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 film came in ahead expectations with $27.1 million from 2,471 theaters. Demetrius Shipp Jr. plays the mythologised rapper. But while the movie continues to fare poorly in North America, the first in Universal's Dark Universe series has already earned $239 million internationally, bringing the movie's worldwide total to $296 million.
Also in the top 10 is Rough Night, which comes in seventh with an estimated $8 million from 3,162 locations. Just over half of critics positively reviewed the movie, about a bachelorette party gone awry. Entertainment Studios' shark tale "47 Meters Down" finished fifth with an estimated 11.5 million US dollars in its debut weekend.
