Pixar's Cars 3 raced to the front of the pack at this weekend's box office with an opening-weekend domestic gross of $54 million and a foreign take of $21million for a $75 million worldwide bow.

The first two films in the "Cars" franchise have reflected the growing clout of markets overseas.

The first two Cars movies combined have made more than US$435 million in the U.S. and US$1 billion globally. While this is the lowest opening for the franchise, it is still a solid start.

After two weeks at the top, Wonder Woman managed an impressive $40 million for its third weekend for a USA total of $275 million and counting. In a surprising third place with $27 million is "All Eyez on Me", the biopic on the late rapper, Tupac Shakur.

This weekend there were quite a few films battling at the box office, which released on 16 June.

With US$40.7 million, the Warner Bros and DC Comics film is seeing another extremely low drop of 32 per cent from last weekend. Dergarabedian said. "Before "Wonder Woman" we were about 9 percent behind last summer". It has made an estimated $651 million against a $230 million budget.

The underwater thriller "47 Meters Down" opened with $11.2 million to take fifth place. Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell, Zoe Kravitz, and Glazer make up a rowdy girl gang who reunite for a bachelorette weekend that goes horribly wrong. Pinkett-Smith slammed the movie as "deeply hurtful".

Rounding out the top 10 were: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales ($8.5 million); Rough Night ($8.1 million); Captain Underpants ($7.4 million); Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($5 million); It Comes at Night ($2.6 million).

6 million, while holdover "The Mummy" slid to fourth place in weekend two with $13.9 million.
