Dory To Have Pixar’s Biggest Opening

Disney and Pixar’s “Finding Dory,” the upcoming sequel to 2003’s “Finding Nemo,” is on track for the biggest opening in Pixar’s history.

The film is reportedly eyeing a debut of between $115 million and $120 million, a massive haul that a sluggish summer box office season is in desperate need of as it’s reportedly down roughly 15% to date.

It would also mark a return to form for Pixar after “The Good Dinosaur” last Fall became the first film release by the studio to lose money. ‘Nemo’ opened to $70 million, while Pixar’s biggest opener to date was “Toy Story 3” with $110.3 million.

It would also give Disney yet another of the major success stories in cinema this year. The studio is behind three of the four highest-grossing films of 2016 so far and has already racked up more than $4 billion in global ticket sales.
