They say in life that ‘Third times a Charm’ – well in Dory’s case she didn’t need to get to third base to prove that she’s a true CHARMER! as Finding Dory has grossed over $136.2 million in its first weekend opening, now that’s something to swim about.
Finding Dory is the sequel to Disney Pixar’s Finding Nemo which graced the box office in 2003 grossing over $70.3 million in its first weekend. Disney has definitely made a big comeback with the sequel as fans rallied in huge numbers to the movies to show their support.
According to Fox Business, Finding Dory (voiced by Ellen Degeneres) is a story about a forgetful fish whom sets off to reunite with her parents. Other actors include Albert Brooks whom played the Marlin in Finding Nemo, Diane Keaton and Idris Elba.
Finding Dory exceeded Disney Pixar’s last movie The Good Dinosaur which grossed $123 million in its total run.
Dave Hollis, Disney’s Executive Vice President of Distribution stated that Finding Dory attracted a more diverse mix of moviegoers than most of the other films Pixar has produced, mainly because it has been 13 years since Nemo hit the screen. Most kids that watched it during that time are now adults with children of their own. Whilst Finding Dory may be new to the younger generation, going to the movies, seeing that Nemo has gotten older and has transformed over the years into adulthood is something that adults can relate to.
Finding Dory will have one more weekend to continue to rack in good numbers as Disney Pixar’s The BFG (Big Friendly Giant) will hit the movie screens on July 1st while the cute feature The Secret Life of Pets will hit the screen on July 8th. And if those new additions will be anything like Dory, Disney Pixar will be swimming all the way to the bank.
Finding Dory is playing now in local theaters near you.
