'Finding Dory' is the Biggest Animated Opening Movie of All Time
Finding Dory has earned an estimated $136 million this weekend, eclipsing not only Finding Nemo but the rest of the competition to become the all-time box office record holder for the biggest opening by an animated movie.
The movie fell just shy of a predicted $140 million, yet it earned over $100 million more than the next best film of the weekend, Central Intelligence. It outshines Shrek the Third's opening convincingly. That film earned $122 million in its opening weekend.
It also becomes the third highest-grossing opening weekend of the year, sitting just behind Captain America: Civil War and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and sandwhiched between superheroes with Deadpool just behind it.
