Box-Office Buzz: Cars 2 Falling Behind; Any Hope Left?

Box Office Cars 2 News

After a promising run, Cars 2 seems to have slipped behind bigger films in this congested summer season.

Cliches aside, we really hate to be the bearers of bad news here at Upcoming Pixar. Unfortunately, this weekend’s numbers have only painted a negative picture for Cars 2. With a combined Friday and Sunday take of $5 million and a Saturday total of $3.5 million, Pixar’s latest clocks in at:

$165,389,754

Granted, a weekend total of a little over $8 million is not bad for any film, especially this far out and with competition such as the final Harry Potter flick. However, this does track Cars 2 behind Ratatouille, Pixar’s least commercially successful film of the last decade. The only thing that might push Cars 2 past the $200 million mark would be a final Labor Day boost.

Fortunately, every cloud has a silver lining. Internationally, Cars 2 is performing well with a total take of about $121 million for a combined worldwide gross of about $286 million. The film has yet to open in major markets including the UK.
