Check out four clips and 13-minutes of behind-the-scenes footage from Finding Dory.
When Finding Dory, a sequel to 2003’s Finding Nemo, opens nationwide next weekend, it is expected to have a whale of an opening. Box office analysts are predicting a massive opening between $115 million and $120 million. If it ends up somewhere in the middle that range, Finding Dory will have the fourth-best domestic opening of 2016 and the second best domestic opening of all-time for an animated film. Plus, it would be a signficant increase from Finding Nemo's $70.2 million opening.
“We’re pretty bullish on it,” Shawn Robbins, senior box office analyst with BoxOffice.com, told Variety. “It’s way ahead of pace in terms of where other Pixar releases have been. Given ‘Finding Nemo’s’ status as a modern classic, it’s going to be huge.”
Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Dory” reunites everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang, Dory, with her friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past. What can she remember? Who are her parents? And where did she learn to speak Whale? Directed by Andrew Stanton (“Finding Nemo,” “WALL•E”) and produced by Lindsey Collins (co-producer “WALL•E”).
