Finding Dory takes down aliens at the box office

Even an alien invasion force couldn’t take down one little fish this weekend.

Finding Dory had a strong second weekend slipping just 45.8 percent to take in $73.23M and a new domestic total of $286.55M and globally sits at $396.85M.

Audiences weren’t all that ready for Independence Day: Resurgence it seems. The film opened to $41.6M in the U.S. with negative reviews and a weak B CinemaScore. Globally it sits at $143M off of a $165M budget. It has a long way to go to hit profit.

Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart had a strong second weekend with Central Intelligence taking in $18.37M. It sits at $69.3M in the U.S. off of a $50M budget.

New shark film The Shallows opened slightly stronger than projected with $16.7M off of a $17M budget.

Matthew McConaughey’s new Civil War film, Free State of Jones, has opened to horrible reviews and just $7.77M off of its $50M budget. Looks like we have a new flop on our hands.

Next weekend’s big releases are The BFG, The Legend of Tarzan and The Purge 3.

Curious how I think these films will do? Check out my The Movies of 2016 – 3nd Quarter report.
