    BOX OFFICE NEWS JUNE 24 - JUNE 26, 2011

    This weekend is almost a repetition to last week. Two movies arrived at the Box Office, each playing to a different demographic target audience. Leading the market in a definite eye for the number one spot is Disney and Pixar's Cars 2, while Sony Pictures countering with their raunchy comedy Bad Teacher.


    Riding on approximately 7,700 screens at 4,115 locations, Cars 2 delivered the fourth highest-grossing June opening weekend ever and the fifth highest-grossing opening weekend yet for a Pixar movie, behind Toy Story 3's $110.3 million, The Incredibles' $70.5 million, Finding Nemo's $70.3 million and Up's $68.1 million. The talking car sequel out-grossed the first Cars' $60.1 million opening weekend from June 2006, but trailed it in terms of estimated attendance. Cars 2's weekend was towards the back of the Pixar attendance pack, ahead of only A Bug's Life, Ratatouille and Toy Story. Distributor Walt Disney Pictures' exit polling indicated that Cars 2's audience was 53 percent male and 56 percent under 25 years old (36 percent was age 11 and younger).

    In second, Bad Teacher bagged $31.6 million on around 3,700 screens at 3,049 locations, grading highly thanks to its relatable, outrageous and clearly-conveyed premise. That gross was greater than Bridesmaids's $26.2 million last month and was in the same range as Step Brothers and Knocked Up. According to distributor Sony Pictures, Bad Teacher's audience was 63 percent female and 57 percent aged 25 years and older, skewing a little less female and younger than Bridesmaids did.

    Here are the top twelve box office of the weekend according to the studio estimate.
