Barring a Father's Day bump, that opening would be below the $56-66 million range independent trackers set for this film and the $60 million opening set by the first "Cars" back in 2006.
The computer-animated comedy film is directed by Brian Fee, a storyboard artist on the first two franchises, and stars the voices of Owen Wilson, Cristela Alonzo, Armie Hammer, Nathan Fillion, Kerry Washington and so on.
Receiving fairly positive critical reception with a 65 percent Rotten Tomatoes score, "Cars 3" also continues Pixar's CinemaScore streak with an A. Aside from the A- scored by "Cars 2", every Pixar film has received an A or A+ from CS polls.
