Disney Pixar CARS 2: $270 Million Worldwide – 3 Weeks

CARS 2 is at $148 million US/Canada through Sunday night – Yesterday, it passed $150 million, only the 8th film of the year to do $150 million US/CAN … um, the the last Harry Potter film will obviously pass that in a few days …

Add in international of $120 million, it stands at $270 million so far after three weeks with more EU markets and Asia to come.

From BoxOfficeMojo.

Of the Top 13, 7 are sequels – and Harry Potter joining the listing in a few days won’t change much of anything.

Of the Top 13, 4 are animated films though outside of the R-rated comedies, aren’t they all kind of cartoony?

Of the 6 non-sequels, 3 are based on comic books – and 1 is animated, Rio.

Of the 2 remaining films, one is an Adam Sandler comedy – hardly a stand alone genre. 🙂

Leaving BRIDEMAIDS as the one “original” film is the Top 13 …

So, while people complain about sequels, are the studios just giving people what they want?

(Number 14 is BATTLE: LA (for those who thought Transformers was too intellectual to understand. 🙂 and #15 – Gnomeo & Juliet (for people who thought Shakespeare can be improved with animated garden gnomes – based on the grosses, it’s so obvious, why didn’t anyone think of it before?!)  😛  ).

    They should see who sells more merchandise; Transformers or Cars. Then we will know who the real winner is.

      The ongoing battle between Hasbro and Mattel,both doing well at the moment.
      With Transformers movies probably stopping after this one and the next Cars still years away I wonder what the next big toy thing will be and who will the lucky one to produce.
      Is it in the U.S. also very difficult to get a hold off TRON figures and stuff?
      Cause over here it is history repeating all over,they were impossible to find back in 1982 and it is the same story now,very weird!!

      • bobbyjack says:

        I remember the TRON stuff from ’82 also. My neighbor had the four figures and the light cycles. Never got into those toys because I was still big into Star Wars, and my dad had just got me a bunch of these new G.I.Joe figures that had just come out. All the new TRON stuff is being clearanced at Target, I guess it didn’t sell very well…again.

          I was about 9 years old back then when my grandmother took me to see it on the big screen!
          Never left my mind eversince.
          Always looked for it whenever I had the opportunity of going to the toy store with my parents,but never found anything.
          On top of that I was A member of the Disney club monthly magazine back then(which was distributed via Holland,to translate in Dutch)and inside their were 4 full pages about Tron and A CONTEST !!
          Prices were Tron Lightcycles,computergames and free tickets,my heart started pumping like it does when your excited age 9,only to find out contest only applied to Holland citizens!!
          Still got the magazine,painfull memories.
          The new toys are here in Belgium Antwerp only available in one specialised shop,not even in the official Disneystore!!
          They had one set,bought em all,asked for others but seems they are sold out for now.

          (MET: If you’re looking for Tron 2011 toys, there are still plenty – most on clearance …).

            I remember playing the Videogame in the arcade way more than I remember the movie or the toys. I was only six back then and I don’t think I caught it in the theatre. My older cousin and I almost wasted a whole week at the beach playing that game. Tons of quarters too! Back then you could trust a 6 year old and an 8 year old to stay out of trouble in a video arcade.

            • Indy says:

              Those sweet memories!!
              Let us not forget that for Mr lasseter this movie is one of the few that inspired him to go on doing what he does now.
              Tron is and remains A masterpiece,inspiring a lot of people to take their first steps into animated computer generated images!!
              Flynn lives and will never die.

          • Indy says:

            Met,by this you mean that they are available through ordering somewhere via internet,or do you know A store in Belgium that sells them?

  • John in Missouri says:

    I asked my kids the other day what their favorite movie was of all time. My son said “Rango” and my daughter said “Rio” (she then expressed dismay at the violence we saw in “Cars 2” a couple weeks ago).

  • cac1959 says:

    Seems to be doing well, even though it’s yet to debut everywhere… Not sure I’ll go see it again until it comes to a cheaper theater though… Cars2 was my first theater movie in almost 2 years and I couldn’t believe how expensive it was.

    For me it’s a definite must purchase on Blu-ray when it comes out…

  • jestrjef says:

    Wow, I would be SUPER HAPPY making $270 million. 😀 Seems like it is a HUGE number … until you put it in THIS context! I guess these stats will be more telling when Cars 2 has been release EVERYWHERE. Right now, Rio and Kumg Fu Panda are kicking their “butte”s with a HUGE chunk from overseas! 😉

    • Indy says:

      Would be happy to make 270 Mil.$ too,but after an investment off over 200 milj.$?
      Trnsformers 3 had a lesser budget and has allready made over 600 Milj.$ worldwide!!
      And if you look at Pirates,wow,that’s making money,and they both have silly storylines too.
