The article presents information on the box office collections in the U.S. Father's Day in North America seems to have had a noticeable effect at the box office on Sunday. There were higher-than-expected Sunday grosses, with solid holdover business and four new wide releases pushing the weekend box office up. The films with the lowest drops from Saturday to Sunday, and thus the biggest increases from early estimates, were Buena Vista's "Cars," Paramount's "Nacho Libre," 20th Century Fox's "X-Men: The Last Stand" and Paramount's "Over the Hedge."
