Posted by at 10:36 am on June 27, 2011

Cars 2 received the worst reviews ever for a Pixar movie, but the film still managed to bring in an unbelievable $68 million, coming in first place at the North American box office. Cars 2 also did very well internationally, bringing in $42.9 million, making its grand total $110.9 million — and that’s just in its first weekend!

Meanwhile, the other big opener, Bad Teacher, starring Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake, opened in a strong second place, bringing in $31 million, which is pretty good for an R-rated comedy. The film also made an additional $12.9 million at the global box office.

Last weekends Green Lantern didn’t do as well as the studio had hoped in its second weekend. It brought in an additional $18.4 million, dropping down to third place. The film has earned only $89.3 million in its first two weeks on a film budgeted at $200 million.

On the other hand, Super 8 has nearly doubled its budget. The film brought in another $12.1 million this weekend, making its total $95.2 million domestically and $36 million internationally. The film cost $50 million to make.
