According to studio estimates, the third installment of Cars grossed $53.5 million in it’s debut, which is not a total Pixar was proud of. In fact, the total represents the next-to-worst domestic debut due to adjustment for inflation. Even though this doesn’t necessarily sound like good news, the content of the film was strong and people are loving it.
In fact, Cars 3 is receiving higher marks than the previous 2001 Cars 2. Additionally, the third film in the franchise scores a 66 percent “fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes, whereas Cars 2 earned a disappointing 39%. Also, Cars 3 received an A from CinemaScore, which was mutually impressive.
