Finding Dory scores a massive win at the box office

Disney continues its massive winning streak this year with yet another hit.

1. Finding Dory

Finding Dory scored the biggest opening weekend ever for an animated film with $136.1M, a 93.8 percent bump over the original film’s opening weekend. We’ll see how it does in the coming weeks, but it looks like Disney made a good choice in making this follow-up film.

2. Central Intelligence

The new Dwayne Johnson and Kevin hart comedy Central Intelligence had a strong opening weekend with $34.5M. While not huge, it’s in line with other Kevin Hart comedies and is probably looking at $100M by the time it’s done with its theatrical run.

3. The Conjuring 2

The Conjuring 2 dipped 61.5 percent in its second weekend taking in $15.55M for a new domestic total of $71.73M and a global haul of $187.93M off of its $40M budget. You might as well prepare yourself for a third film.

4. Now You See Me 2

Now You See Me 2 slipped to fourth place this week dropping 56.9 percent in its second weekend and took in $9.65M and sits at $41.36M domestically. The original film was at $60.91M at this point in its run, so things are not looking good.

5. Warcraft

Rounding out the top five was Warcraft which slipped a massive 73 percent to take in $6.52M to sit at $37.71M domestically off of its $160M budget. Before we write it off as a complete failure, globally it sits at $377.61M. The U.S. may not be digging it, but the foreign markets seem to love it.
