CARS 2 makes good over BAD TEACHER at Box Office
As probably expected the era of animation domination within the cinema world this year has returned. None better than the classic combination of Disney and Pixar to make this happen. CARS 2 did what it was supposed to do, at least for this week anyway, by taking first place in the Box Office. It took in $68 million this weekend beating out Cameron Diaz’s BAD TEACHER which made $31 million and got it second place.
GREEN LANTERN got third at $18,350,000. The super-hero/space epic came in above SUPER 8 ($12,100,000) & MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS ($10,300,000) which both finished fourth and fifth respectively. The real challenge for all of these films will come this week in the form of Michael Bay’s last TRANSFORMERS chapter. I for one am highly looking forward to DARK OF THE MOON. When released this coming Wednesday, it will shoot to claim the top spot owned right now by PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES for the highest opening this year.
It’ll be interesting to see how long CARS 2 holds up considering last year’s TOY STORY 3 grossed the most money of 2010. But it will have to outlast the remainder of the summer juggernauts beginning with TRANSFORMERS. How do you think Disney/Pixar’s latest project will sustain the summer movie storm? Let us know right here.
