Finding Dory Swims to the Top for the Third Weekend In a Row

Yes, Finding Dory kept on swimming.  And for the third weekend in a row, it remained at the top spot at the box office ($41.9 million).  This brings it's worldwide total to $538 million.

Surprisingly, not far behind was  Warner Bros. The Legend of Tarzan ($38.1 million), which did better than analysts thought.  However, it still has a long way to go to recoup it's reported $180 million budget.

Not far behind that movie, The Purge: Election Year managed to scare up $30.9 million. which is pretty good, considering the movie's budget is around $10 million.

As for Spielberg's The BFG... Well, it's not a terrible start ($19.6 million), but not a very good one either.  Even though it got the best new reviews of the week, it failed to find a big enough audience. Maybe Disney debuted it to close to Finding Dory? Also, since it's more of a family film, it has an uphill battle over the next few weeks, as a pretty well marketed animated film, The Secret Life of Pets, comes out next weekend.
