LOS ANGELES -- Lightning McQueen and his pals in "Cars 3" raced to the top spot at the box office this weekend, pushing "Wonder Woman" into second place for the first time since it opened.
Studio estimates on Sunday said Disney and Pixar's "Cars 3" opened with US$53.5 million -- a low for the US$1 billion series.
In its third weekend, "Wonder Woman" held strong with $40.8 million, bringing its domestic total to US$274.6 million.
In third place, the Tupac biopic "All Eyez on Me" debuted with a notable US$27.1 million, while the Mandy Moore shark thriller "47 Metres Down" netted US$11.5 million.
The raunchy comedy "Rough Night" got off to a rough start in seventh place. Sony's R-rated bachelorette party gone wrong pic earned only US$8.1 million against a US$20 million budget.
