'The BFG' Collapses at the Box Office, While 'Finding Dory' Continues to Dominate
Finding Dory is number one for a third consecutive week at the box office, taking in $50.2 million during the four-day weekend. So far, the fish-friendly film has taken $380.5 million, very near overtaking Finding Nemo already.
Steven Spielberg's Roald Dahl adaptation The BFG has fallen very short on its opening weekend, finishing fourth and earning just $22.3 million. Experts are now expecting it will fall remarkably short of its $140 million budget, though foreign markets may save the day.
The Legend of Tarzan finished second with $45.6 million, while The Purge: Election Year came third with $34.8 million.
