Disney and Pixar's Cars 3 took off down the track last night with $2.8-Million from Thursday night preview screenings.
Cars 3 follows Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) in the twilight of his racing career as he is eclipsed by a new generation of racers led by high-tech rookie Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer). After a crash puts his career in doubt, Lightning decides to make a comeback with the help of his racing team’s new trainer, Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo).
Brian Fee directed the film screenplay by Bob Peterson, Kiel Murray and Mike Rich. Fee, Ben Queen, Eyal Powell and Jonathan E. Stewart are producing the animated feature. The latest installment of the franchise has received much more positive ratings than Cars 2 did in 2011, with many believing that this could be the film that gets the series back on track.
It is believed that Cars 3 will take the top spot at the box office this weekend.
Featuring the voice talents of Owen Wilson, Larry The Cable Guy, Armie Hammer, Cristela Alonzo and Nathan Fillion, Cars 3 is speeding into theaters today.
