Adjust Comment Print

Wonder Woman was finally knocked out of the #1 spot at the box office this weekend by Cars 3, but it still had a big third weekend!

"Cars 3" earned 21.3 million USA dollars internationally, and the combined total income is 74.8 million US dollars, according to studio figures collected by comScore. "All Eyez on Me", the Tupac Shakur biopic from Lions Gate Entertainment Corp., opened to $27 million to place third. 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.

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.

Admin revokes blocked program to protect immigrant parents
The program meant to keep immigrant parents safe from deportation and provide them with renewable work permit for two years. But a Texas District Court imposed an injunction that was upheld by the 5th U.S.


Having passed the $500 million global mark on Saturday, "Wonder Woman" is now estimated to finish the weekend with a domestic cume of $274.6 million. Demetrius Shipp Jr. plays the mythologised rapper.

Coming in fourth is The Mummy, which premiered in second place last weekend.

Also in the top 10 is Rough Night, which comes in seventh with an estimated $8 million from 3,162 locations. The newest installment had been forecast to earn $56 million in its opening weekend, according to BoxOfficePro.com. The film - which received poor reviews from critics and audiences alike (B- on CinemaScore) - sees Cruise's Nick Morton go up against Ahmanet, the mummy of an Egyptian princess who curses him. Sony's R-rated bachelorette party gone wrong pic earned only US$8.1 million against a US$20 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 film sees Naomi Watts star as the single mother of two sons, Henry (Jaeden Lieberher) and Peter (Jacob Tremblay), the oldest of whom attempts to rescue the girl next door from her abusive stepfather.
