The box office results are in for this hotly-competitive July 4 weekend, and for the third weekend running the domestic box office champ is Finding Dory from Disney-PIXAR. The haul this four-day weekend is $50.2 million. As well, the overall haul is $380 million in 18 days and this is also the fastest animated flick to $300 million, achieving that mark in just 12 days.
I had expected this movie to do well, given the PIXAR track record for hits, but nothing like this. At the rate Finding Dory is going, it could end up winning the box office for the entire summer and possibly even the year.
Also, I have very little to say about either The Legend of Tarzan or Steven Spielberg’s epic flop, The BFG. To be honest, I was never particularly high on either of them doing well at the box office from day one. So again this summer, the feast or famine cycle shows up at the movie box office.
