After easily handling the underperforming Dark Universe movie The Mummy, the indie thriller It Comes at Night and the true story drama Megan Leavey, Warner Bros.' superhero hit Wonder Woman faces its stiffest competition in its third weekend, going up against four movies in wide release. The most formidable of these competitors is the Disney Pixar animated sequel Cars 3, which has the widest release of these newcomers, along with Open Road's Tupac biopic All Eyez On Me, Sony Pictures' R-rated comedy Rough Night and Entertainment Studios' shark thriller 47 Meters Down. While the Wonder Woman box office run has been impressive thus far, Diana of Themyscira's reign atop the charts will come to an end this weekend, with Cars 3 most likely taking the top spot.
Box Office Mojo reports that Cars 3 will open in an estimated 3,900 theaters this weekend, while 47 Meters Down is expected to roll out in 3,500 theaters, »
Disney Pixar's Cars 3 reveals key voice cast and characters, featuring award-winning stars. Following are the newcomers and Cars franchise veterans who join the previously announced voice talent and characters Owen Wilson as world champion racer Lightning McQueen, Cristela Alonzo as unconventional trainer Cruz Ramirez, and Armie Hammer as sleek next-gen racer Jackson Storm. The studio has revealed a new poster, along with photos of these three new characters, voiced by Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion and Lea DeLaria.

We've long suspected that every Pixar movie from Toy Story to The Good Dinosaur takes place in the same universe. Now a new Disney Easter Egg video shows how that is possible. With a few fun transitions, a dozen interlocking Easter eggs are revealed that quickly move through the entire Pixar catalogue. And it's nothing short of amazing, especially considering some of the foresight the animators had to have to pull it all off.
Things kick off with Dory bumping into a group of school children on a trip to the local aquarium, and if you look close enough, you'll spot Riley from Inside Out in the back ground. That transitions to Inside Out, where we see how Riley fondly remembers back to her time with the dinosaur, which cleverly connects to The Good Dinosaur.
