‘Finding Dory’ topped the box office again in its second weekend, outearning such competition as the action sequel ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ and the thriller ‘The Shallows.’
Finding Dory,” which was released on June 17, grossed more than $72 million at the North American box office during its second weekend, beating out the action sequel “Independence Day.” That film grossed more than $41 million in its opening weekend.
What has kept “Finding Dory” doing so well? Pixar has established itself as a mostly reliable purveyor of movies for all ages, comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian told USA Today.
“It’s been a go-to movie for everyone, and that’s the magic of the Pixar brand,” Mr. Dergarabedian said of “Dory.” “Having a Pixar movie in the summer mix is always good for business.”
