"Wonder Woman" fell to second place in its third weekend in theaters, but it's still doing the heavy lifting for the otherwise lackluster summer box office.
"Cars 3" grossed $19.5 million Friday after nabbing an A CinemaScore - the eighth consecutive Pixar release to do so. The first "Cars" movie opened in 2006 to $60 million and its 2011 sequel grossed $66 million over its first weekend in theaters.
"Wonder Woman" finished in second place with an estimated $40.7 million, bringing its domestic total to just below $275 million.
As for the rest of the debuts, All Eyez on Me collected $27 million, landing in third place. The movie once again stars Owen Wilson as Lightning McQueen, alongside newcomers Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer) and Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo).
However, Cars 3 could not make another penny, and it wouldn't mean a thing to Disney as the Cars franchise has generated more than $10 billion in merchandise sales.
47 Meters Down settled for fifth with $11.5 million. It's the first major release from Entertainment Studios, which acquired the project from its original distributor, Dimension Films. The space adventure has earned a solid $375 million domestic and $470 million foreign for a worldwide tally of $844 million. The film, about a bachelorette party weekend gone wrong, starring Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon and Jillian Bell, took in a paltry $8.1 million against a $20 million production budget. Pinkett-Smith slammed the movie as "deeply hurtful". Sony can't be happy with the performance of the R comedy "Rough Night", which only took in $8 million on over 3,000 screens.
6 million, while holdover "The Mummy" slid to fourth place in weekend two with $13.9 million. Lucia Aniello directed the film.
