“Cars” moves to No. 2 in box-office grosses July 31, 2006Posted by Ron Warnick in Movies.
During the weekend, “Cars” moved into the No. 2 slot this year in domestic box office receipts with a total of $234 million, according to Box Office Mojo. It edged out “X-Men: The Last Stand” for the runner-up spot.
“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” is the runaway winner in the domestic box office this year, with $358 million and still going strong.
“Cars” is rapidly approaching the $100 million mark in foreign grosses. That will go much higher, as many European markets received the film just days ago, and “Cars” still hasn’t opened in several other countries yet.
