Weekend Box Office June 24, 2011 - June 26, 2011


As expected, "Cars 2" came in at number 1 at the box office this past weekend.
Despite dismal reviews, the Pixar sequel took the number one spot at the box office this weekend, earning an estimated $68 million. Cars 2 makes Pixar’s number one opening weekend record 12 for 12. Predictions were all over the map, from 50′s to 70′s. In 2006, Cars earned $60.1 million, but with the increase in ticket sales, that number would translate to around $72.1 million today. Overseas it has earned $42.9 million giving it a total of $110.9 million worldwide. This weekend’s other wide release was "Bad Teacher", got the number two spot with a total of $31 million. The comedy, starring Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake, was rated R and had mixed reviews, which made predictions around the low 20′s. However, it was the only new adult choice at the box office this weekend.
