Finding Dory Is Sizing Up To Break It’s Predecessor Record
Walt Disney & Pixar Studios upcoming Adventure Animated Finding Dory Movie could turn the tides and swim it’s way to the box office success as The Wrap reported, Finding Dory is projected to make $125 Million on it’s opening weekend, easily making it one of the few sequels this summer to surpass it’s predecessor blockbuster Finding Nemo.
2003’s Finding Nemo made almost $70 Million on it’s opening weekend which the sequel should easily beat. However, there are only three movies out of 16 which has been released in 2016, tops it’s predecessors, Captain America Civil War & Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice are the one who beat their most recent predecessors but there are also The Conjuring 2 which made the same amount as The Conjuring film made during it’s opening weekend, others just failed to beat it’s sequels at the box offices.
In 2016, Disney Studios has made money more than any other studios out there with Zootopia who tops $1 Billion mark at global box offices and is all set to release 3 more animated movies this year and Finding Dory is one of them.
Alice Through The Looking Glass bombed during it’s Memorial Day Weekend Opening, collects more than $26.9 Million domestically in it’s first weekend nearly $90 Million less than it’s predecessor Alice In Wonderland in 2010.
Disney-Pixar Finding Dory is sizing up to break it’s predecessor opening weekend record on June 17.
There are more sequels in which Independence Day Resurgence arrives on June 24, merely one week left in it’s release, the movie has an uphill battle to beat the 1996 Original Independence Day which has a $96 Million opening weekend and this time Will Smith is not returning.
Finding Nemo Sequel looks like a huge hit for Disney Pixar.
