Finding Dory has hugely successful opening weekend!

Written by Daniel Kirby on 20th June 2016

The highly anticipated sequel to Finding Nemo was released in the US on Friday and took over £93.3m, which makes it the most successful animated film launch in US box office history. 

The film has also had the second most successful opening weekend of the year so far, with only Captain America: Civil War seeing greater success.

After a thirteen year wait, Ellen DeGeneres returned to provide the voicing for the titular character, along with director Andrew Stanton, and despite the long gap it appears interest in the story has remained high.

Finding Dory is set to be released in UK cinemas on July 29th.
