'FINDING DORY': ALL-TIME RECORD OPENING
“Finding Dory” is swimming toward a record-breaking $130 million opening weekend, early estimates showed Friday. Disney/Pixar’s animated sequel — playing in 4,305 North American theaters — is completely dominating moviegoing, set to earn more than $50 million on its opening day Friday — which includes $9.2 million from Thursday night — the biggest debut of all time for an animated film. Action-comedy “Central Intelligence,” teaming Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, is launching with a solid $35 million at 3,508 sites this weekend.The most conservative estimates Friday were in the $115 million to $130 million range. Sunday’s telecast of the NBA final game may hold down some business at the end of the weekend, but it’s likely that “Dory” will break the nine-year-old record for best domestic animated opening, set by “Shrek the Third” in 2007 with $121.6 million.
