The Secret Life of Pets knocked Finding Dory out of the #1 spot at the box office this weekend. The new animated film, which features the voices of Louis C.K., Kevin Hart, Eric Stonestreet, Ellie Kemper, Jenny Slate, and more, was a hit with movie-goers and critics alike, bringing in a total of $103.2 million (with a $75 million budget) in its first weekend.
The Legend of Tarzan swung into the second spot with a distant $20.6 million for its second weekend, bringing its total gross to $81.4 million (with a budget of $180 million). Coming in third was Pixar’s Finding Dory with $20.3 for its fourth weekend. The Finding Nemo sequel has now grossed over $422.6 million domestically, and it has surpassed Captain America: Civil War as the biggest movie of 2016. It is also on track to become the highest-grossing animated movie of all time which will break the North American record that is currently held by Shrek 2.
Coming in fourth was Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates with $16.6 million (with a $33 million budget), starring Zac Efron and Anna Kendrick, and in fifth was The Purge: Election Year in its second week of release with $11.7 million.
