'Independence Day: Resurgence' Opening Can't Outswim 'Finding Dory' at the Box Office
Disney/Pixar's Finding Dory will win its second weekend by the looks of things, outranking the opening day for Independence Day: Resurgence, which early estimates list at $48 million to Dory's $67 million.
Dory will see a 50 percent drop from its opening weekend, and will round out a ten-day total of over $260 million. Blake Lively's The Shallows is expected to earn around $13 million, while Matthew McConaughey's Free State of Jones is predicted at $7 or $8 million.
Roland Emmerich's Independence Day sequel was made on a budget of $165 million, with Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman returning to the sequel and mingling with newcomers such as Liam Hemsworth and Jessie Usher.
