Early numbers show that the latest Disney/Pixar venture, Cars, took in $62.8 million on the weekend, shaping up to be the third-best Disney/Pixar opening, beating out Monsters, Inc.. Last week’s winner, The Break Up, still managed $20.5 million, with X-Men: The Last Stand, $15.5M; The Omem, $15.45M; Over the Hedge, $10.3M. Update 6/13: Disney actually downgraded the weekend take due to a weak Sunday to $60.1M.
Bryan Singer told SCI FI Wire that he cut a rather interesting scene from Superman Returns because it didn’t fit the movie – but isn’t sure where the scene may show up. The scene features Superman returning to his home planet of Krypton – to find it destroyed. For whatever reason, Singer doesn’t think it will end up on a DVD – but perhaps in 3D IMAX: “I think it would be coolest in 3-D, because of just stuff that’s flying around.”
