Cars pulled in 62.8 Million Dollars this weekend according to Box Office Mojo.
How does that fare against other animated films' opening weekends? Shrek 2 pulled in 108 Million, The Incredibles got 70.4, Finding Nemo got 70.2, Ice Age 2 got 68 million, making Cars having the 5th highest opening for an animated film.
That means it also got ahead of Monsters Inc (62.5 Million), Toy Story 2 (57.3 Million), A Bug's Life (33.2 Million) and Toy Story (29.1 Million) to make it the third highest opening for a Pixar film.
