Monday Morning Box Office Report: Cars 3 Coasts Across the Finish Line, Rough Night Stumbles


It was another predictable win for Disney over the weekend as Cars 3 became the 16th Pixar movie (out of 18) to open at the top of the box office. That being said, its $53.5 million debut is still one of the lowest ever for Pixar, beating only The Good Dinosaur, A Bug’s Life and the original Toy Story while coming in behind the previous two Cars films as well. Wonder Woman was a strong second with $40 million, dropping just 30% in its third weekend. The Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez On Me was a solid hit for Lionsgate, opening to $27.1 million, while The Mummy fell to fourth with $13.9 million. 47 Meters Down rounded out the top 5 with a somewhat surprising $11.5 million. Way down at #7 with just $8 million, Rough Night was a major disappointment for Sony and the second misfire of the year for Scarlett Johansson. Maybe it was just too dark for mainstream audiences… or perhaps all the women were seeing Wonder Woman a second time instead?

    *whispers* ScarJo isn’t as a big a box office draw as people assume

  • LordAwesome

    She has definitely turned off a lot of people with her hideous politics over the past few years as well as her new feminist butch looks.

    Kate McKinnon is also quickly approaching box office poison as no matter how much they push her as the next big thing she has appeared in flop after flop after flop.

  • For someone who hasn’t seen a lot of her outside of films, what are these “hideous politics”?

  • j-diggle

    “feminist butch looks”? Oh my.

  • Beat_C

    woman with short hair = feminist butch look? i’m sorry, but these are not the imdb boards. bye.
