'Cars 2' zooms to top of box office

The latest Pixar film easily topped the weekend box office, more than doubling the No. 2 finisher. I'm not surprised because, as I've said before, kid-friendly movies tend to do well at the box office (except for "Judy Moody", who seemingly had her last opportunity for a top-10 spot last week).

From The Associated Press:
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.
