Attesting to the film’s popularity, the movie grossed $73.2 million over the three-day weekend, about half of what it took in the previous weekend – and it still held onto the top slot on the leader board, pushing its total gross receipts to $286.5 million in domestic theaters and $396.8 million overall, including foreign locations.
This keeps Disney well ahead of the pack among production studios for the year, currently with four releases in the top 12 (Finding Dory at No. 1; Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows at No. 9; Alice Through the Looking Glass at No. 10 and Me Before You at No. 12).
For the week, however, Warner Bros. also had a strong presence on the leader board with the No. 2 and No. 3 films in Independence Day: Resurgence, which took in $41.6 million in the United States and Central Intelligence, which grossed $18.3 million. The Warner Bros. release X-Men: Apocalypse is also on the top 12 list at No. 8 with a take of $2.4 million over the weekend.
The top 10 for the week in the United States: Finding Dory ($73.2 million), Independence Day: Resurgence ($41.6 million), Central Intelligence ($18.3 million), The Shallows ($16.7 million), Free State of Jones ($7.7 million), The Conjuring 2 ($7.7 million), Now You See Me 2 ($5.6 million), X-Men: Apocalypse ($2.4 million), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows ($2.4 million) and Alice Through the Looking Glass ($2.1 million).
