As expected, Cars 2 was the box office leader in its opening weekend, the 12th Pixar release in a row to win that title. At a 3-day gross of $68 million it did a bit better than expected, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com, but was not particularly noteworthy for a Pixar film.
With 63 reviews in (as of this writing) - Cars 2 has a 38% score on RottenTomatoes.com with the summary "Cars 2 is as visually appealing as any other Pixar production, but all that dazzle can't disguise the rusty storytelling under the hood.". By comparison Cars scored a 74% - the lowest of all the Pixar films scored on the website. Could this be Pixar's first clunker?
Update: With 118 critics now reporting the percentage is now 34%. The Top Critics score is 43% (35 critics)
