The unforgettable fish is energizing the summer season. It only declined 46% from its opening weekend, that’s the eighth best second weekend of all time for all movies and the second best for animated movies. It’s already the 5th highest grossing Pixar film.
The ten day domestic total for “Finding Dory” is a robust $285.6 million, that’s just $100 million of the final total for “Finding Nemo.” The international box office has already run up $110 million, which places the global total for ‘Dory’ just under $400 million already.
