The Secret Life of Pets Debuts to a Huge $103.2 Million

Illumination Entertainment and Universal's The Secret Life of Pets took a big chomp ($103.2 million) of the box office this weekend.  Much, much higher than anticipated. In other words, Universal finally has a hit this year.  Actually, this weekend's domestic gross of The Secret Life of Pets, already makes it the highest grossing Universal film this year in North America... beating out Ride Along 2's $90.9 million.

In other news, it's a battle for second place as The Legend of Tarzan ($20.6 million) and Finding Dory ($20.4 million) are too close to call, and will come down to the final tally tomorrow.  Also, with $422.6 million in the bank, Finding Dory has surpassed Captain America: Civil War to become 2016's highest grossing movie in North America.

And... Spielberg's The BFG needs a strong overseas market to recoup it's reported $140 million budget as it now has slipped to 8th place.
